In 2008, a fundraising pioneer, an actuary, and a veteran fundraising marketing guru walked into a bar…
During their lively discussion, they became more outraged at the mounting challenges nonprofits faced. Declining acquisition rates.  Climbing production costs.  Plummeting donor retention rates.  Increasing competition.
Organizations need, and should demand, access to basic resources to increase efficiency.  No longer were they going to sit idle as so many nonprofits were in urgent need of help.   They could do something about it … and did.
DonorTrends launched with a mission to help nonprofit organizations of all sizes maximize donations and net revenue by providing affordable tools that turn their donor data into fundraising action.
Today, DonorTrends is proud to work alongside thousands of fundraisers in hundreds of nonprofit organizations around the world.  No matter how big this movement becomes, it will always be guided by 5 founding principles:
