“Dataro is completely reinventing how we use data in our fundraising. These guys are one of the most exciting things to happen in the industry for years.

Liesha Hanekroot Fundraising Manager

“I’m really impressed with the results we had for Christmas! It brings me so much joy to know that we’re contacting the right people...and that we can get better and more efficient about this over time! Data has never been easier to manage!

Amelia Szulerecka Senior Fundraising Manager

“The thing that stood out for me the most was that we are able to be proactive in our retention strategies instead of reactive. I don’t know a simpler and more accurate way than Dataro propensity scores to determine who and when to contact RGs for better retention.

Andrew Jung F2F & Telemarketing Manager

“We tested Dataro's propensity scores in our 2020 Tax Appeal and the results speak for themselves. We were able to raise more funds and reduce our costs. We're now rolling out Dataro's propensity scores across all of our appeals and regular giving programs.
