Proven Technology to Engage Alumni and Potential Donors

We are proud that our origins stem from a 30 year partnership with Higher Education institutions the world over. Our deep understanding of the challenges faced by universities and schools operating in an environment of ever increasing demands and decreasing resources enables us to provide world class solutions to connect you with those who would support your institution.

Higher Education institutions require a holistic view of their alumni, partners, and supporters to build strong, productive, and mutually beneficial relationships, and maintain lifelong connections. These are the guiding themes on which our technology has been built and is continually being developed for our Higher Education customers.

Our solutions will help you increase engagement with your alumni and community, manage the implementation of your fundraising and development strategy, and coordinate external communication and solicitation across your institution.

Higher Education at a Glance:

Engage Alumni for a Lifetime

Every contact you make with your constituents is a step along your journey together – a journey that should last a lifetime.
