    Community Brands + Gravyty | Partnership Announcement


    The genesis of Gravyty began when Adam Martel, at the time a major gifts fundraiser at Babson College, and Rich Palmer, a former technology executive and MBA candidate, saw the opportunity to bring artificial intelligence to the CRM solution being used at Babson in order to help advance fundraising for the frontline fundraisers. That CRM was Abila Millennium.
