At iWave we’re passionate about what we do and believe that our solutions are the best in the nonprofit industry. We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our customers do the talking. Check out the testimonials from our valued customers below.
iWave is more accurate, more user-friendly, and more versatile. I recommend iWave to everyone I speak with.
We recently started a $40 million capital campaign. With iWave, I was able to gather and verify critical wealth and philanthropic information about a prospect that led to a $10 million gift from that individual. iWave’s research platform helped us get 25% of the way to our goal with that one prospect alone.
iWave is a crucial tool in our prospect research toolbox, and has greatly expanded the scope of our capabilities in terms of individual research and larger-scale prospecting projects. It is very easy to use, and when new features and content are added it is done so in a way that makes sense from a product development and fundraising intelligence standpoint. We are glad to partner with iWave and excited to see what the future holds!
iWave is my go-to resource for prospect research. Not only is it a one-stop-shop when I have a request with a quick turnaround, but it is one of the only places I can consistently uncover email addresses. The interface is fantastic and nimble. I have been using this product for over three years and in that time they have rolled out a number of significant data enhancements. The iWave team is constantly trying to improve the product and that is something I can really get behind.
iWave is the first tool I use when researching a new individual, corporation or foundation. It’s fast, easy and very thorough. The control I get with iWave screening greatly reduces my clean-up afterward (which is so awesome) and the individual tabs for each search helps me drill down quick and easy. There’s so much I can learn on the source of wealth and behaviours’ of our prospects, iWave really helps makes our strategies incredibly solid – which is vital when meeting new individuals.
I have been using iWave for a few months but only just recently took advantage of iWave screening to screen the parents of our incoming students. I was blown away by how easy it was to upload my data and to quickly see results. Not only has it helped me to identify some great US prospects, but it has opened up a whole new world of prospects in Canada. I have found some real hidden gems that I would have possibly never found without an individual search on the hundreds of them. I cannot state enough how invaluable this product is to me and to the work I do. A win for everyone in my office!
iWave has tremendously increased our development capacity across all segments—individual, corporate, foundation, and now even workplace giving! iWave’s databases are extensive and accurate, and their 360 search makes creating prospect profiles seamless and intuitive. iWave is a well-designed, one-stop shop, and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the development field.
Once again, iWave is able to offer a quick, effective solution for my prospect research needs. The fact that I can instantly search for an industry and find relevant contacts (who also have high net worth and are philanthropic!) saves me and my team countless hours. I’ve never had a prospect research tool that is so customized to the exact needs of a fundraiser. I will sing iWave’s praises for as long as I’m in this industry!
I am a researcher for a large organization, and out of all the research products we use, iWave is by far my favorite. iWave’s layout is easy to navigate, and I could not be happier with the results when using iWave’s.
I could not live without it! Compared to our other paid subscriptions, I find that iWave is by far the best value for the money.
iWave is my go-to resource for research on individual prospects and donors. 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. I have always appreciated iWave’s leadership in our field which has resulted in my professional growth as a researcher and allowed me to continually raise the bar and deliver better results.
iWave is one of the best products we have. I’m always impressed by the robust amount of information. If all of my tools were taken away and I could have only one product, it would be iWave.
iWave is one of the most comprehensive and accurate research tools we’ve used. It is easier to query and has enabled us to reduce our research time and respond to requests more rapidly. It has already helped us identify new major gift prospects and new leadership prospects for our annual fund effort.
I believe iWave offers the best research results for the best value. I’ve used iWave in 3 small shops and it has helped us unearth many major gift prospects, saving us the cost of professional research fees. The simple interface, the variety of research tools, design, and handy features make this a time and money saver. And best of all – the data is always fresh and accountable. I recommend iWave to all my colleagues!
I used iWave for the first time and, after a bit of research, submitted a grant application to a foundation for funding consideration. We had never applied to this particular foundation before and were excited to receive notification that we had been awarded $10,000 for a capital project. I probably would not have applied to this particular foundation had I not had the benefit of iWave’s detailed funder profiles. Thanks so much!
Thank you for such a terrific product. iWave is the first and sometimes the only resource I use when researching a prospect. It’s user-friendly, clear, concise and so much better than any other product out there. Thank you.
The intuitive nature of iWave is, perhaps, the best feature. Think it, click it, see it! Plus, it is so much more affordable than some of the other options I have used in my many years of prospect and donor research.
After demoing alternative software, we ultimately decided to go with iWave. As a performing arts nonprofit organization, iWave has been invaluable as we assess the capacity of our current donors, ticket buyers, and personal contacts we meet in various networking or special events settings. The screening function has led us to new board members and major donor candidates.
iWave has helped me every minute of every day. As a researcher, and especially as a consultant, you won’t always know if a certain profile you built leads to a certain gift amount raised. But with iWave, you’re always confident in the work you do.
I have now brought iWave to three different organizations and I will continue to spread the word about this product. As a grant writer, [iWave] has really cut my research time at least by half and it’s also made me look really good to my boss.
iWave paid for itself in our first week of service by identifying the capacity, the propensity to be philanthropic, and the affinity for our mission. The integration with Salesforce is very powerful indeed, and presents the considerable potential to streamline our information management, and therefore to focus our time effectively.
Children’s HeartLink has used iWave for several years and it is an indispensable tool in our development system. We have relied upon it to help us find and screen high-wealth donors who have in turn helped us nearly double our revenue since 2016.
From helping our team quickly identify leading environmental donors across the Puget Sound region and beyond, to tracking down email and mailing addresses – iWave has proven invaluable to our fundraising successes and helped advance our cause and our mission.
As a non-profit organization in the heritage sector, iWave has proven invaluable in identifying exciting prospects by assessing the capacity of corporate, foundation, and individual donors. Their data is reliable, up-to-date, and easy to navigate. We recently did a comparison with similar paid subscriptions, and iWave proved to be the best value for our money.
I use iWave daily and it is an absolutely invaluable tool. We have 22 centers and camps in the association and that means a wide variety of research requests. It supports me in providing our leadership with in-depth background on our donor base before meetings and allows us all to feel confident in the strategic decisions being made.
As a freelancing Prospect Researcher, iWave has become indispensable to my daily work. Its depth of information, spanning Canada and the USA makes it the perfect one-stop-shop for research on leading prospects. It’s an easy to use platform that makes it stand head and shoulders above others. I have been using iWave for years, and it has not only made my job more efficient but also makes me stand out with my clients.
iWave’s user interface makes it incredibly easy to research both donors and foundations. Plus, they find information that I can’t get anywhere else. With the best interface and the best data, iWave is easily the best research service available. I’ve tried and tested a variety of different products and iWave is the only one I’d want to use each and every day!
The very first time I used iWave, I found one of our corporate sponsors was giving $7500 to us but was giving much more to other charities. I asked them for $15,000 and they said “yes!” And they kept giving at that level for the next year (and the next, and the next…). I was able to get back more than my investment in iWave after one month.
I’m brand new to prospect research and iWave has been an incredibly helpful tool throughout this learning process. I rely on it when it comes to building and customizing prospect profiles and it’s awesome to have multiple search engines in one place.
iWave is constantly improving and adding new data sets. The customer support and service cannot be topped. I particularly like, as a geographically-based community foundation, the ability to search for prospects by location.
I have found iWave's screening services to be extremely useful in qualifying donors - the philanthropic information with active links back to source documents is top notch. While I'm quite proficient in research and profiling, when the information I'm looking at is not completely clear, their support is stellar, responsive, knowledgeable.
Before using iWave I was individually researching thousands of people. It was really slow and involved a lot of guess work. Now I can screen prospects across all kinds of data and pinpoint the top percentage who come back above a certain threshold—that takes half an hour. iWave has helped us exceed our fundraising goals every year
The platform is easy to use, the program overall is intuitive and easy to learn, there is a host of training material, and it easily integrates with Salesforce (which we use). The speed that we can move data from iWave into Salesforce is excellent. The iWave report summaries are also excellent, providing a good mix between high-level info and particular targeted data.
iWave Screening is so easy to use. The first day, I found scores for several names from our lower tier that are now on our major gift level. I appreciate the speed and efficiency, and I can trust the sources of information.”
I love the Insights feature and especially the Hidden Gems. I used to spend hours doing research to try and uncover these individuals but now iWave does it for me. Sometimes I recognize the names of the Hidden Gems but with many of them, I had no idea they had capacity and were philanthropic.
Using iWave was my only way of building my list of 2,500 highly qualified prospects, specifically connected to our mission. iWave’s training and support team allowed me to grab and grasp the power I never realized I had. If I weren’t fundraising and doing the most meaningful work of my life in my current position, I would be selling iWave. I believe in the product that much.
We started by screening a segment of our contacts to highlight untapped potential of current members and low level donors, and within two months of starting our subscription we uncovered 1 billion dollars of capacity in just 1% of our database.
The ability to find both broad stroke overviews and granular details under one login is a significant point of differentiation for iWave from other research software options.
