Overview

It's never been easier to reveal a donor's giving capacity. Givebutter users have access to DonorSearch's robust prospect research data available with one single click inside any Contact profile.

How it Works

DonorSearch is a leading provider of prospect research to non-profits of all types, including charities, healthcare organizations, fraternities, sororities, religious organizations, and educators. Pulling information from the largest philanthropic database, DonorSearch uses proprietary algorithms to surface actionable insights, giving history and wealth intelligence that connects more people to your cause.

With DonorSearch's wealth screening tools baked right into Givebutter Contacts, you're able to analyze supporters based on their capacity and likelihood to give. Instead of guessing at your fundraising strategy, you'll go in knowing who to ask and which appeal to make to increase your odds of securing a donation.
