Harnessing Demographic and Lifestyle Data-16
A New Era in Donor Engagement

In today’s rapidly evolving fundraising landscape, alumni, advancement, and foundation professionals are constantly seeking innovative ways to connect with their donors more meaningful. Utilizing demographic and lifestyle data to understand donors can result in a significant enrichment and engagement levels. Below, we explore an insightful campaign example that underscores the value of such strategic segmentation. 

Example: Affluence-Based Segmentation
  • Goal: Increase annual end-of-year donations. 
  • Segmentation: Members were classified into high, medium, and low affluence categories based on their income levels and past donation history. 
  • Communication Strategy: 
  1. High Affluence: Messaging emphasized leadership and visionary gifts, “Your generous contribution can lead the way for future advancements at our institution.”
  2. Medium Affluence: Communication was crafted around the concept of legacy and consistent support, “Your continuous support has been our backbone. Let’s build the future together.”
  3. Low Affluence: Messaging encouraged micro-donations, underlining every bit’s impact, “Every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference. Join our mission.”
  • Campaign Success: Achieved a 35% increase in total donations, with a notable rise in micro-donations from the low-affluence group.
