About Us

KIT is a fundraising intelligence platform that enables nonprofits to make more data-driven decisions and reach their most engaged donors when it matters most. 

We believe that nonprofit organizations should have the same access to cutting edge technology being used to power the world’s most successful companies. 

Through the power of artificial intelligence, we empower fundraisers across the world with data and help them raise more money for their cause.

Organizations using KIT increased their revenue by 46% on average in 2020.

How It Started

KIT was founded by a passionate team with years of experience building cutting edge software products in both the nonprofit and for profit sectors.

We saw how artificial intelligence was transforming how the world works, and wanted to know how we could create a solution that enables nonprofits to unlock the potential of their data, better understand their donors, and make an even greater impact for their cause.
