Our Mission

Our mission is simple: To help nonprofits of all shapes and sizes, and across all sectors, fundraise with confidence. That means, knowing they’re asking the right person, for the right amount at the right time.

We know that for nonprofits to be successful, they need to know and understand their prospects’ capacity and inclination to give, whether that’s for a capital campaign, annual fund initiative, or corporate funding project.

We also know that fundraising professionals don’t have time to parse through Google and sift through forms, reports, and documents. That’s where we come in. We bundle the best and most comprehensive philanthropic and wealth data together in an easy-to-use, AI-Powered platform with actionable fundraising intelligence.

And, for more than 7 consecutive quarters, we have been the top-rated fundraising solution on G2. Read some customer stories here.

What Makes iWave Different?

At iWave we take an entirely new approach to common industry challenges to create solutions and features that overcome technology shortfalls and enable every nonprofit, regardless of sector or size, to benefit from fundraising intelligence. Here are a few of the ways we offer you a better solution:

  • Enabling Customization: No two nonprofits or missions are the same. That’s why your fundraising intelligence shouldn’t be either. It’s the iWave difference. iWave is fully customizable, free of one-size fits all scores, profiles, and analytics.
  • Delivering Transparency: We provide our clients with complete transparency into the data, formulas, and sources of information that we provide so that, if desired, you can verify and validate data and ratings and always trust the intel you are using to make data-driven fundraising asks.
  • Relentless Data Integrity: We pride ourselves on our data integrity, offering the industry’s most comprehensive and highest quality suite of wealth, philanthropic and biographic data.

The History of iWave

Our organization was founded more than 30 years ago, when we recognized a need for a platform that aggregates donor information into a one-stop-shop for fundraising intelligence. Since then, we’ve grown to better understand and leverage the specific needs of the nonprofit community. Our fundraising software has expanded to provide:

  • Solutions to locate donors with the greatest capacity to give, from individuals to corporations, foundations, and bequests
  • Wealth screenings and analytics to uncover the best donors for your organization
  • Prioritized prospect lists and predictive modeling that help grow your donor base faster
  • Intelligent Profiles that enables nonprofits to monitor relevant updates on their prospects or donors with Smart Alerts

Not only does it kick-start my research on key people, but it is also highly useful for identifying new prospects, such as when we are planning events.
