About Us

NFPs of all sizes can struggle with fundraising efficiency. Dataro solves this problem by providing affordable access to state-of-the-art machine learning technology and data-driven marketing techniques previously only available to the big corporates and top end of town.

By maximising the efficiency of NFP fundraising journeys through predictive modelling and advanced segments, we are helping NFPs to enhance the quality of donor engagements and ultimately dedicate more dollars to the causes that matter most.

Dataro was born out of the first cohort from Westpac’s prestigious FuelD accelerator – a data-driven accelerator connecting today’s businesses with tomorrow’s innovators – and and has since gone from strength to strength with our smarter fundraising technology.
