We Go Beyond Wealth

Assessing a prospective donor based on wealth alone is no longer sufficient. In order to tailor your messaging and craft the right ask, it is important to look at the holistic view of a donor– wealth, philanthropy, and affinity. iWave’s VeriGift is the largest and most up-to-date database of charitable gift donations and recipients. Equipped with this knowledge, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of a prospect’s giving history and interests so you can tailor your ask and your cultivation strategy.

Customization and Transparency Because One Size Doesn’t Fit All

And, so you have confidence in these results, we provide transparency into the records and formulas used to generate them and adjust wealth ratings based on geography so they aren’t overinflated.

"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."
