What is KIT?

As the first of its kind, KIT is a data integration toolkit that represents a giant leap forward for nonprofit technology. It combines AI-powered predictive analytics, key performance indicator (KPI) insights, and presentation-ready reporting to help your organization do more with your data, all at the click of a button. 

The beauty of KIT is that you don’t need to overhaul your current system, install an entirely new software framework, or teach your staff to work within a new paradigm. Instead, KIT integrates seamlessly into your existing customer relationship management (CRM) platform and draws on the data it already contains. 

The sophisticated technology underlying KIT employs Artificial Intelligence and machine learning strategies to provide a range of valuable insights covering which donors to reach out to, what method to use, when to reach out, how much to ask for, and even which fundraising campaigns will appeal to specific donors.

Having KIT is like having a data scientist on your team who never gets tired, never makes mistakes, and costs the fraction of an actual data scientist. 

 

How Can KIT Drive Your Nonprofit Growth

KIT’s tools take care of the data heavy-lifting that would usually be difficult or impossible for you and your team to accomplish. Let’s take a closer look.

Fundraising Optimization

KIT generates donor insights from fundraising data that will transform the way you raise money and meet (and even exceed) your fundraising KPIs. 

Using predictive analytics, KIT allows you to learn more about your donors’ behavior. So, you can tailor your communications to individuals or donor segments, increase donor engagement, build loyalty, and receive more contributions. 

Here are five KIT features that can help you make accurate predictions about your donor behavior: 

  1. Donation Forecasting: Know how much your organization can expect to raise in the coming months or years.
  2. Donor Score: Understand which of your donors are engaged and which ones need extra attention to promote engagement.
  3. Donor Readiness: KIT can determine which donors are ready to give in the next two weeks. 
  4. Time of Year: Plan your fundraising peak periods and schedule for the whole year with guidance from KIT.
  5. Transaction Type: Know where your donations are coming from and where to focus your resources so you can efficiently develop your revenue streams.

With KIT, you can make better fundraising campaign predictions, craft realistic goals, be ready for bumps in the road, and set your team up for success.

 

Find And Convert Recurring Donors

Recurring donors are the most important supporters you have. Recurring donations cost much less to acquire than one-time donations, so even small donations can add up to significant contributions over time. 

The key to securing recurring donors is personalized communication tailored to a donors’ needs and preferences. 

By talking to recurring donors using methods and language that they can relate to, you increase your chances of keeping them on board.

Contact insights from KIT help you create a comprehensive strategy for targeting, engaging, and winning the trust of recurring donors

You can also use KIT to convert one-time donors to recurring donors by generating impact reports from KIT’s Fundraising KPI Dashboard. These reports communicate the difference long-term donations make to your mission. With these reports, you’ll connect one-time donors to your cause.

 

Identify More Major Donors

KIT offers prospect research and wealth screening tools that gather information about your supporters’ philanthropic histories, capacities, and motivations. This information helps you identify more major donors, as well as planned gift donors and annual fund donors. As you identify these major donors, you can apply contact insights also generated by KIT.
