Unless you can deliver the right information to the right donor, even the highest quality fundraising materials will end up being thrown away.
Complete, Accurate Donor Records to Boost Fundraising Results
AlumniFinder® Data Append Services can help ensure that your donor records are up to date and aren’t missing important information. We offer a range of data append services that can use your existing donor database – pulled from your DMS system or other records – and provide you with missing data related to your supporters. This information, such as email address, phone number, date of birth or other demographic data, can help you more effectively target new and retain existing donors. From Demographic and DOB Appends, to our full suite of data and list hygiene products, AlumniFinder can help you improve the results of your fundraising campaigns.
Cell Phone Append Service
In today’s market, where land line usage is steadily decreasing, marketers are searching for ways to add mobile phone numbers to their donor databases. By providing access to one of the nation’s largest databases of mobile numbers, AlumniFinder’s Cell Phone Append Service gives you an important alternative means of staying in contact with your donors.
Demographic Append Service
Without key demographic, psychographics and lifestyle information about your donors, it is difficult to develop targeted marketing strategies to effectively reach them. AlumniFinder’s Demographic Append Service helps you gain a clear understanding of the household income, age, occupation, mortgage amount, education levels, presence of children and other lifestyle characteristics of your donors. We offer more than 500 demographic, psychographic, email and lifestyle elements through our append service.
Deceased Append Service
To ensure that the names of deceased individuals are removed from direct marketing lists prior to a new mailing campaign, fundraisers can use the Deceased Individual Flag Append Service. This prevents unwanted mail from being sent to members of the deceased’s household. Our file contains the names of over 40 million deceased individuals. When compared against other files, it typically helps to identify from one to three percent of the individuals in a file as being deceased. Part of this service is the Anchor’s Deceased Probability IndexTM, and approach accurately identifies only those individuals’ names that should be suppressed and removed from a mailing list. This not only improves your response rate, but also lowers costs, and can help improve a company’s image by showing sensitivity to this important issue.
DOB Append Service
Our Date of Birth (DOB) Append Service enables you to update your database with valuable age information.
Email Append Service with a Welcome Message Deployment
To help strengthen new donor relationships and support a cost-efficient communication strategy, AlumniFinder offers organizations an Email Append Service. By first identifying a donor’s email address, the service then sends an opt-in, permission-based message to an individual. Once a response is received, the service appends the appropriate email address to the original donor record.
Add another dimension of intelligence to your alumni or donor database through the addition of employment details that include the company name, job title, matching gifts programs, and more. Whether to enhance student outcome reporting or grow your social media presence, AlumniFinder’s Employment Append assists you in identifying up-to-date information on the professional lives of your constituents.
Phone Append Service
Clearly, maintaining accurate land line telephone numbers is also essential to staying in contact with your donors, even if you don’t actively telemarket. Our Phone Append Service typically delivers a 35 to 65 percent match rate accuracy for most consumer files. We do this by using the name and address criteria of your donor file and matching it against comprehensive consumer files. The result of the process is an output file that has been updated to include current phone number information, including updated area codes on matched records. If you select the optional Do Not Call (DNC) service, we will also append a code field telling you which DNC database the client is currently listed in, including Federal DNC, selected State DNC, and the Direct Marketing Association Telephone Preference Service (DMA/TPS).
