Frequently Asked Questions

General

Fundraising KIT is for nonprofits using a CRM that are looking to raise more money and increase staff capacity. We currently integrate with RE NXT, Salesforce and NeonOne but are constantly adding new integration partners!

Fundraising KIT is a data-driven toolkit that helps nonprofits raise more for their cause. Fundraising KIT integrates with leading nonprofit databases to identify supporters ready to give, segment donors for targeted communications, and track fundraising progress, all while saving time and resources in the quest to increase revenue.

On average, nonprofits that use Fundraising KIT increase their annual revenue by 46% in the first year. If that’s not enough, Fundraising KIT will take the guesswork out of your fundraising campaigns and remove admin work from your teams so that they can invest their time where it matters most, connecting with your donors!

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the ability of a computer to perform tasks that would typically require human intelligence and cognition. It is the process of using a computer to automate tasks previously done by humans.

Machine Learning is the underlying process of AI, that allows machines to analyze data and learn it to self-improve, in order to identify patterns in data and predict outcomes. Through machine learning, computers can find trends that would have otherwise gone unnoticed.

For nonprofits, harnessing the power of AI and machine learning means that tasks that would normally take hours or days to complete, can be automated and done in a matter of seconds or minutes, allowing fundraisers to get back to what matters – engaging their donors. Through machine learning, predictions can be made that show fundraisers which donors to speak to, and optimize their fundraising.

Fundraising KIT analyzes your historical data and is trained to pick trends that are likely to repeat in the future to solve problems that fundraisers face everyday for example, who is likely to donate, how much are they likely to give, and how much is our organization expected to bring in this year.

Fundraising KIT provides fundraisers with information and insights on their donors by aggregating the data within their CRM with external data collected through social media, donor communications and wealth intelligence tools. Fundraising KIT also uses this data internally to build it’s machine learning models, so that it can continue to learn and predict behaviors.

For example, Fundraising KIT uses data that exists on your donors such as how much a donor has given to other similar charities, their net worth, if they live in a neighborhood with a high propensity to give, and combines that with your data related to a donor’s giving history with your nonprofit, to give you a stronger understanding of each donor.

Fundraising KITs algorithms use state of the art machine learning technology. These algorithms are built with the fundraiser in mind. We start by looking at the problem to solve and we try to build out a solution that uses the best practices from the sector. This is our benchmark for our algorithms. Our algorithms should perform better than the current best practices.

The ML algorithms are built by training on a model on historical data to solve the problem at hand. For example we can train our model on donation data to find the times when donors are most likely to give. Once a model is built it can be used to make predictions for new data.
