Rare is the innovation that offers nonprofits a true competitive advantage in fundraising. The Atlas of Giving is doing exactly that by providing timely, relevant economic intelligence for the charitable sector.

Very useful! even more so than GivingUSA! Thanks very much Atlas!

The Atlas of Giving brings to my desktop each month a philanthropic climate report that gives me the confidence to plan development projects and annual plans. I share the Atlas of Giving with my Foundation Board of Directors and key volunteers to instill confidence – that people are still giving, even in a difficult economic climate. The primary benefit of using this tool is that it is up-to-date every month. I don’t have to wait until the end of the year to learn what is happening with national or sector philanthropic giving. It is the single most important tool I have at my fingertips to help prepare budget, beyond my own track record of philanthropic support – that seems to be increasing very nicely each year!

As a small nonprofit, forecasting can help you level the playing field in a number of ways. Not only can you gain a competitive edge by using timely information like the poor consumer confidence that will affect charitable giving this holiday season, but you can adjust your spending and marketing promotions to current giving conditions and forecast.

I only wish in the years I was a consultant I had had access to goodies like these. Talk about innovation. Talk about non-Flat Earth Fundraising! Atlas, you deserve a raise.

The Atlas of Giving is a game-changer for the nonprofit sector.  Finally we have timely giving information and a reliable forecast to use in making fundraising and budgeting decisions.  This will soon be a required resource for every nonprofit professional.

Stephen Nill, J.D., CEO, www.charitychannel.com

Nonprofit professionals will no longer “fly blind” into the future.  They finally have a sound basis for crucial financial decisions.  Because we all live with major economic uncertainty and rapid changes, it’s very risky to rely on financial data that is more than three-months old.  With accurate projections of future giving, nonprofit leaders can now make the right decisions that lead their organizations to much greater success.
