iWave’s 2019 Year in Review

And just like that! It’s December again. Over the last 12 months, iWave has had a lot of news to share. As the top-rated fundraising intelligence platform available to nonprofits, iWave is constantly pushing the boundaries when it comes to platform features, thought leadership and technology partnerships. Below you’ll find highlights of the year that was, including first-of-their-kind features, enhanced partnerships, and new content. 

iWave Insights

In February, iWave announced the release of its Insights feature. This first-of-it’s-kind feature helps nonprofit development teams segment their database and uncover major gift prospects by analyzing an individual’s donation history with the specific organization as well as wealth and philanthropic indicators within iWave’s database. 

iWave Insights will automatically segment a nonprofits database and sort individuals into the following four segments: Hidden Gems, Distinguished Philanthropists, Your Champions, and Not Now Prospects.

Introducing Generate Profile 

In March, iWave announced the release of Generate Profile, a new feature that uses proprietary matching logic to create prospect profiles by bringing wealth and philanthropic records together using a name(s) and an address. This new feature is the fastest way for development professionals to build prospect profiles that leverages the industry’s most comprehensive wealth and philanthropic database.

iWave Performance Hits The Market

Building off the success of iWave Insights feature, iWave’s newest addition called Performance will offer a new way to understand the major gift performance of a group of prospective donors. Performance enables you to better understand how constituents in your file are performing philanthropically relative to how they are performing with other nonprofits organizations.
