ST. PAUL, MINN. – Reeher LLC, developers of a powerful shared management platform for higher education fundraising, has unveiled its new Advancement Layer, giving advancement leaders a laser-‐sharp view of program performance.
The new, 360-‐degree view of fundraising activities – including detailed operating reports and interactive charts – builds upon existing Reeher Platform features to give executives a comprehensive view of their annual fund and major giving programs’ successes, opportunities and development activities, powered by customized, secure daily updates from donor databases.
“As part of the network of Platform subscribers, customers give us direct input about exactly what they need to be more effective advancement leaders in the face of significant change in our industry,” said Andrew Reeher, president of Reeher LLC. “With our new Advancement Layer, the Reeher Platform becomes an even more powerful system for seeing the daily progress of their fundraising efforts and helping their staff identify opportunities for improvement. ”
The Advancement Layer features two main sections, the Executive Summary and Advancement Operating Report. These sections have the same user-‐friendly interface as the rest of the Platform to give advancement leaders simplified access to critical information. Each viewport allows executives a detailed view of key measures like fiscal year comparison by donor type, school of graduation, giving level and more.
“We have been using the Reeher Platform for a few months and have integrated its capabilities into our operating routines,” said James G. Miller, associate vice president for development and alumni relations at Duquesne University. “The advent of the Advancement Layer provided a significant enhancement to an already comprehensive and responsive platform, and we are now capable of generating an instantaneous ‘30,000 foot’ perspective of our year-‐to-‐date results compared to past several years’ performance, with just a few simple clicks of the mouse.”
The Advancement Layer is the latest in a series of high-‐profile updates to the Reeher Platform, which helps advancement leaders at colleges and universities across the country improve fundraising. 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.
The Reeher Platform provides rapid access to the insights development offices need, with no infrastructure to create or any of the hassles of a homegrown fundraising management system. Each 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 researchers.
