Discover Your Next Donor with Nexis® for Development Professionals

June 01, 2022

If you’re like most development professionals, you’re short on the time, support and resources needed to achieve the core fundraising goals of your organization. The work that goes into development efforts feels never-ending. From researching countless individual potential philanthropists and aligning your mission with corporate charitable giving efforts, to shaping a thoughtful outreach strategy, capturing their attention and pitching the value of your work, it’s little wonder that many of the development professionals we speak to feel like a 40-hour workweek is just not enough time to get it all done.

Given that charities, non-profit organizations and educational institutions simply cannot function without a steady, reliable influx of donations, these challenges present a major catch-22. Thankfully, LexisNexis® offers a resource that can simplify the path to finding high-potential donors, not only saving time but improving the efficacy of your efforts.

Nexis® for Development Professionals (NDP) is the most trusted resource for development professionals because it makes fundraising efforts faster, easier and more efficient. And it just got better. The Nexis team recently unveiled a series of new features, offering users access to an unparalleled amount of comprehensive and trusted donor data through new quick visualizations in new donor profiles. This new streamlined donor research process takes you from a search to the insights that tell you a donor is right for your mission.

These features come at the perfect time. The latest data from the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy Outlook for Charitable Giving suggests that total giving will continue its upward trajectory from 2021, with an anticipated growth of 5.7% in the next year. Let’s take a look at how the newly improved NDP can help you seize upon this growth.

There is a reason our product has a more than 97% renewal rate­. NDP offers deep and rich content that spans news, company information, individual records and more.

Powerful Donor Profiles

In addition to offering the industry’s largest and most reliable collection of data, the newly improved NDP includes a feature created for a singular purpose—to save development professionals’ time.

Called Donor Profiles, this feature combines millions of records into a comprehensive profile of an individual or organization to provide a complete picture of every potential donor's background. These profiles bring together demographics, donation history, wealth indicators, news and affiliations into a singular view.  

Insights with an Impact

In addition to cutting back on how much time you spend sifting through donor information, NDP’s Donor Profiles also include automated donor insights, streamlining users’ path from search to story and laying the groundwork for strong, lasting relationships. This includes details about each donor’s propensity and capacity to give, how much they’re likely to donate and information on which causes they have most frequently given to in the past—uncovering their affinities for causes.
