Gravyty and iWave Announce First-of-its-Kind Strategic Partnership in Fundraising Industry

Partnership Will Deliver Sophisticated Fundraising Intelligence through AI Solutions

BOSTON, November 13, 2018Gravyty, the first provider of AI-enabled fundraising software, and iWave, an industry-leading fundraising intelligence platform, today announced a strategic partnership designed to power artificial intelligence (AI) for the fundraising industry with robust fundraising intelligence data.

The partnership, a first-of-its-kind in fundraising, will involve a roadmap of joint solutions that combine Gravyty’s AI-enabled suite of tools and iWave’s comprehensive wealth and philanthropic data. Together these solutions will provide frontline fundraisers and researchers the tools to manage relationships with the most important donors at the most opportune times and streamline personalized, donor-centric fundraising, at scale.

“It takes a constant donor-centric, human focus to ensure an organization’s fundraising needs match a donor’s philanthropic interest and intentions. Gravyty and iWave share this vision and believe that AI, fueled by the best data in our industry, will lead to more organizations having the opportunity to realize their missions,” said Adam Martel, co-founder and CEO, Gravyty. “This partnership marks the first time that frontline fundraisers will have personalized, donor-centric communications, proactively delivered directly to their inboxes. This will be a game-changer in our efforts to help organizations fundraiser more efficiently and I couldn’t be prouder to partner with Ross, Gerry, and the entire iWave team.”

Gravyty’s AI-enabled solutions fundamentally change fundraiser efficiency with personalized outreach proactively drafted by AI, automated stewardship support, prioritized portfolio outreach, and more. With Gravyty, fundraisers spend their days acting on data to build relationships that grow missions, rather than analyzing it.

iWave delivers wealth and philanthropic intelligence that segments and uncovers prospects with the greatest capacity and inclination to donate a major gift.

Harnessing the power of Gravyty and iWave together will mean a more sophisticated way to uncover and connect with the next great major gift prospect. 

“At iWave we are dedicated to providing nonprofits with access to the best wealth and philanthropic intel in the industry. That’s why a partnership with Gravyty was a no-brainer,” said Ross Beattie, CEO, iWave. “It will enable nonprofits to leverage wealth and philanthropic intelligence in a way that has never been done before.”

The first Gravyty and iWave collaboration will use iWave data to power Gravyty’s AI-enabled solutions and be available in the first quarter of 2019.
