YoungAssociates serves nonprofits in a variety of fields, including arts, history, and medicine

Wealth Analysis

We use a Prospect Development Wealth (PDW) analysis with virtually all our clients. This helps us identify each client’s best new individual giving opportunities before we arrive in a community, so we can hit the ground running. The PDW analysis will tell you a great deal about your donors (e.g., their age; number of children; length of home ownership and home valuations; indications of large investing and significant holdings in equities; significant retirement holdings; and more). We also consolidate this stream of knowledge into a master profile of your defined geographic area.

Wealth in Central Florida

PDW results from YoungAssociates

Most of our clients see between a 5-15% address correction rate.  With one client the NCOA correction rate hit 37%!!  No matter how recently you have address corrected your list we start with USPS address standardization of your file and the over 70 lists we will rent in order to wealth rate your file.  Our clients also experience as much as a 21% correction of phone landlines due to wrong #’s, disconnects and out of service, and acquire between 28-40% of their list with the addition of cell phones and Email addresses.  We also denote on your file all with an Honorable Discharge from our Armed Forces and append a month and year of birth, # of children to all records in order to aid in planned giving.

PDW results put you in a position to answer some important questions:

  • Is there sufficient wealth in your database to complete a capital campaign, advance an endowment, or address a mid-campaign cost overrun for a new building?
  • Who among your lesser-known donors is most able to increase their support?
  • Where can you turn with confidence to begin to offset an anticipated cut in government funding or unanticipated loss of gift renewals due to the passing of long term donors?

If you are asking questions such as this, PDW will empower you with new information about the capacity of your nonprofit’s donor base.
