Join us for a special APRA session on October 6th

Session 3: Using TouchPoints to Prepare for a Campaign

Illinois Wesleyan University completed a comprehensive wealth screening to prepare for a campaign. The next step was to complete a thorough data append to update biographical data and employment data. We also wanted to learn more about our major gift prospects but as a small school, we were limited with human and financial resources. We'll be discussing how TouchPoints helped us select the appropriate data points, such as a matching gift indicator, donor advised fund indicator, and an indicator for those without children, to not only update our biographical data but to also segment the data and enhance communication tactics.
