Predictive Modeling and Data Analytics
To propel fundraising in an ever-changing philanthropic marketplace, CCS is utilizing new technologies and predictive modeling to help our partners locate and appropriately engage the best donors, motivate fundraising staff performance, and improve existing donor relationships. Our dedicated Research and Analytics team works side-by-side with CCS clients to design-focused portfolios of the strongest candidates for activation and engagement complemented by data-assisted performance assessments that can help organizations track progress, set goals, build accountability and foster professional growth opportunities.
Today, CCS clients are using data to drive donor cultivation strategies and employing statistical models to accurately forecast goal-setting and anticipate greater fundraising potential. In partnership with CCS, an emerging number of clients are leveraging data to design strategies for principal giving and big bet philanthropy aimed toward addressing society’s most pervasive challenges and compelling solutions.
With our robust analytics and research capabilities, we leverage data to support better campaign action plans, helping our partners to identify untapped opportunities and new donors.
CCS regularly convenes nonprofit leaders in Philadelphia and around the world to network, share experiences, and discuss effective strategies for growing fundraising income and navigating the philanthropic climate. In the last year, we presented our trade insights at over 60 events, published 29 original articles, and developed a Philanthropic Landscape report that highlights trends, insights, and key industry data from major markets across the nation.
