Data Services For the Win By Brent Nudo

Discerning the Right Data Services Can Change Everything!

Whether it’s managing donor records, understanding the effectiveness of your communications effort, or helping your team identify that next big prospect, data plays a vital role in your organization’s success. Using the right tools will move your ministry into the 21st Century!

Digital Tool Assessment & Recommendations

Do you love your current digital tools (e.g., donor database/CRM, payment processor, email marketing software)? Do they provide best-practice outcomes at an appropriate cost for your organization? Do your tools “talk to each other” (aka, integrate)?

At The Timothy Group, we work with the ever-increasing list of digital tools and identify what tools are the best fit for organizations. Assessing current tools can be complicated, and changing to new tools can be nerve-wracking. But with professional guidance, you can gain the confidence to make the right choices for long-term success.

Data Cleaning & Optimization

Clean and well-maintained data improves the effectiveness of your communications and fundraising efforts, saving your organization time and money. Could your organization’s data use an excellent scrubbing? Do you need help setting up the internal processes to keep things tidy? Whether finding duplicate donors, identifying incorrect data, verifying addresses through the US Postal Service (aka NCOA), or pulling data from multiple sources into one location, the Timothy Group can help you get your data in tip-top shape.

Reporting & Segmentation

Having clean data and great tools alone is not the goal. The value derived from your data/tools is fully utilizing them to support your organization’s communications and fundraising efforts. Does your database feel like a black box? Do you need help creating reports or dashboards to help increase transparency? Do you need help with prospect identification and segmentation? We use a multi-factor approach to help you identify your best prospects for legacy gifts, monthly donors, major donors, etc. Our experienced team can help you build the reports and dashboards you need to support your next campaign.
