FFE And DonorSearch Offering Free Wealth Screening Service To Member Foundations

Indianapolis, June 13, 2018—The NIC Foundation and DonorSearch have collaborated to offer NICF member foundations special use of DonorSearch services through a free wealth screening of 1,000 organization members. DonorSearch provides accurate and actionable information to identify an organization’s best prospective major gift, annual fund and planned gift donors based on proven philanthropy and wealth analytics.

On Thursday, June 14, DonorSearch will host a webinar as part of the NICF Continuing Education Webinar Series. The presentation will focus on the benefits of using wealth screening in fundraising strategy and utilizing data in major gift prospecting. Presenters will also provide details and next steps on this new benefit for NICF members.

“I’m excited for the NICF to grow its benefits and services for member foundations in collaboration with established experts in fundraising and nonprofit management,” said NICF Executive Director Ashley VanDewark. “This type of education coupled with access to advanced tools and resources is critical to our work in advancing sophistication of fraternal foundations. We’re grateful to DonorSearch for their generosity and support, and look forward to our continued work together.”

The free screening includes an Executive Analysis and Portfolio Wealth Screening Results. NICF member foundations should contact Kathy Wilson at DonorSearch to receive this benefit or visit the NICF website for more details.
