“We are thrilled to be working with Fresno State, a marquee public institution, to ensure their continued success in reaching donors and prospects,” said Andrew Reeher, president of Reeher LLC. “Public universities often have complex, decentralized fundraising functions that can benefit from a common management system like the Reeher Platform, and we’re looking forward to working with Fresno State to improve accountability, visibility and effectiveness of their entire advancement team.”
The Reeher Platform provides vice presidents, along with their major giving and annual giving staffs, a shared system to improve fundraising results. Each Platform subscription includes a set of predictive model scores for all constituents to reveal the best donor prospects, web-‐based tools to leverage technology for better results, and a connection to a powerful peer network of leaders focused on improving fundraising. The tools are built for all levels of advancement and development, from executives to gift officers, managers, annual fund directors and prospect research.
“Like many public universities, we needed a new way to expand our prospect pool and improve our reach to the most qualified prospects,” said Kent Clark, associate vice president for development at Fresno State. “The Reeher Platform is a proven solution that will give our team a simple, yet robust analysis of our opportunities and actions in development, with the goal of completely rebuilding our prospect pools across the institution in all of our academic units, athletics and student affairs.” Not only does a growing customer list add value to Reeher’s peer network of subscribers, the software-‐ as-‐a-‐service model of delivery also means that when enhancements to the web-‐based Platform are added, they are available to all users. Recent updates include the Annual Fund Operating Report and the robust Vista Scorecard and Benchmarking, with additional enhancements delivered to all subscribers at regular intervals.
Building on fundraising success at elite private universities like Barnard College, Vassar College, Colorado College, Wellesley College and Hamilton College, the Reeher Platform continues to gain momentum among public research institutions such as Johns Hopkins University, Duke University and Tulane University because of its flexibility, shared value and low cost of ownership.
