“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

"It is so helpful to filter by labels in iWave Dashboards to see a high-level overview of each development officer's portfolio. It's easy to see everything and pick out an area that I want to drill down into. I especially like the iWave Insights visuals, which help us easily identify which donors may need some extra research/attention (Hidden Gems) and which ones we should consider rolling off the portfolio (Not Now Prospects) to make room for new potential high capacity donors."

“One of the best parts about iWave is how easy it is to use and how quickly it can give us an answer to how much capacity, affinity, and propensity a donor has to give.”

Brian Ralston

Development Operations Manager
Irish Arts Center

"We’ve screened a couple of lists including one membership list and used [Multi-Lens Modeling] to see if there were any members with high capacity we didn’t know about, so we could target them for the quiet phase of our capital campaign. The ability to see different ratings based on our capital campaign [goals] versus annual giving is a real difference maker. I really like being able to adjust each [model] and see all of them side by side."

Kendall Valliere

Director of Development
Jewish Community Alliance

"Our president likes to know what boards people are on and current email address. I can find that information in iWave that I can’t find anywhere else unless I spend a lot of time googling.  I also like being able to perform a screening , create profiles and export the data for further analysis”
