AskGenius uses data and behavioral science to help you raise more money with your next fundraising appeal.
How much money are you leaving on the table?
If you ask for too small a gift, you’re depriving your nonprofit of the funds it needs to carry on its mission. But if you ask for too much, you risk alienating your donor. AskGenius analyzes your database and helps you thread the need the needle with customized ask strings based on actual donor behavior and decades of fundraising experience.
Raise more money
AskGenius can increase gifts to your next fundraising appeal by an average of 10%. That’s because we know exactly where to find those donors who are ready to increase their support. (Hint: they’re hiding inside your database, buried beneath mountains of data that you just don’t have time to sort through.)
With fewer headaches
Our genius process for creating perfect ask amounts
Connect your data and get started
Securely connect AskGenius to your Raiser’s Edge database or upload an Excel file from your favorite donor management system.
Choose the perfect strategy
Pick and choose from a menu of proven fundraising algorithms. Whether you’re looking to increase overall giving, upgrade lower-level donors, or promote giving societies, we’ve got a strategy that will get the job done.
Fine-tune your asks
Once you’ve applied the strategy, you can easily adjust ask amounts for individual donors or entire groups. We make it easy for you to modify ask amounts to fit your unique donors.
Trust our security & privacy
for each donor
We’ll share the genius.
You take the credit.
Whether you’re a development director trying to hit your annual appeal goal or a database manager who is tired of bouncing back and forth between Raiser’s Edge, Excel spreadsheets, and bump tables, AskGenius was built for you.
Get the most out of your appeal
In this competitive fundraising environment, every gift matters. Use AskGenius to optimize your appeal and inspire donors to increase their gifts.
Spend time on what matters most
It would take you days to sort through each donor’s giving history and set custom ask amounts based on the latest research and behavioral science. Leave that work to us, so that you can spend your time meeting with donors, solving problems, and building your case for support.
Get more from the software you already have
We’re not here to replace your donor management software. We’re here to help you take all that data you’ve collected and put it to good use – setting smarter, customized ask amounts for every donor.
Finally, a fundraising tool that just plain works
If AskGenius seems a little more helpful than the software you’re used to, it’s because our application was built by a team of actual fundraisers. Our team boasts decades of experience leading high-performing annual appeals for colleges and universities, high schools, Catholic dioceses, healthcare organizations, community non-profits, and everything in between.
We’ve pulled the lists, written the letters, segmented the asks, and lost sleep over LYBUNTS and SYBUNTS. We’ve labored over mail merges, and we definitely know the feeling of relief when the appeal finally reaches goal.
Over the years we’ve researched and tested every fundraising appeal strategy we can think of, and we programed everything we’ve learned about donor behavior into the AskGenius strategies.
