“iWave is so user-friendly and onboarding was easy and smooth.”

Patti Anne Miller

Development Director
A Noise Within

"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."

Laura Shumate

Associate Director
ArtCenter College of Design

"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."

Lisa Steinberg

Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation

Liz Baker McClain

Director of Campaign Operations

"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!"

Debra Bond-Gorr

Chief Development Officer
Centennial Infant and Child Centre Foundation

"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."

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!"

Nicole Fonsh

Julia Rupert

Senior Administrative Specialist, Individual Giving
United Way of the Alberta Capital Region

“iWave is one of my most-used resources when prospect researching. Whether it’s researching potential individual donors for our major gifts team, or companies for workplace campaigns, my first search is on iWave. I’ve used it heavily over the last year, especially given it was also my first year in this role. It is extremely user-friendly, with a great interface, and awesome customer service. iWave has given me insight into donors’ family foundations – which I may not have readily known – as well as made my searches more efficient. Instead of having to check multiple annual reports, to see where major donors in our community are giving, I can conduct a search on iWave. Additionally, I can gain insight into a company’s philanthropic activity quickly – helping me determine if a potential relationship can be developed. iWave has helped me verify prospects and identify individuals I wouldn’t have otherwise found."

I recommend iWave to all my colleagues!"
