Donor Opportunity Analysis

Donor Opportunity Analysis is another way we bring Empowering Research to community leaders as a decision-making tool. It is a package of strategic planning tools that provides nonprofit executives, staff and board members with deeper understanding of their communities and the opportunities for strengthening community-based philanthropy. These powerful research tools are developed as a follow up to the Transfer of Wealth™ analysis. Donor Opportunity Analysis tools will help nonprofits, such as community foundations, take data-driven decision making to a whole new level by making the connections between needs, capacity and strategy.


Donor Opportunity Analysis...

  • Provides your foundation with the data needed to be more strategic in allocating scarce resources based on the location and general characteristics of “high capacity households” within a county.
  • Supports and/or re-energizes an existing fund, initiative, leadership role or strategic grantmaking approach at your nonprofit.
  • Allows your nonprofit to better understand its region and make stronger, more strategic decisions through the use of secondary and primary data.
