In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Social Sector Ventures Invests in Affinaquest’s Innovative Donor Management System

Affinaquest, the powerful and versatile nonprofit donor management system built on the innovative salesforce.com platform, announced today that it has received growth capital from Social Sector Ventures. The new capital will be used to expand its product functionality and support services, as well as sales and marketing activities to meet the rapidly growing interest from the nonprofit community.

“Affinaquest is generating tremendous attention because it’s based on a data model that has been refined over the last 40 years to enable faster and cleaner data entry and reporting and it has been built on the robust, state-of-the-art salesforce.com cloud based platform. When compared to many of the legacy systems in the market today, it is clear that Affinaquest is a dynamic and fresh solution for the complex donor development and acquisition challenges faced by today’s fundraising professionals,” says company founder, Jeff Shy.

“When leading nonprofit institutions are purchasing a donor management system they have relatively few options to choose from due to technology vendor consolidation in the past five years,” says John Walvoord, Ph.D., founder of Social Sector Ventures. “Affinaquest is changing the game, giving nonprofit institutions not only a modern choice in technology for donor management, but also providing a new option in database paradigms. By building Affinaquest on the best-of-class salesforce.com platform, Affinaquest makes it possible for additional applications to seamlessly integrate with donor management.”

Jeff Shy, a nonprofit CRM veteran who has developed nine advanced Donor Management Systems for nonprofit organizations and university advancement offices, will continue to lead Affinaquest as President and Chief Technology Officer. Dr. Walvoord, a long-time thought leader in donor management and multichannel marketing for the nonprofit community, joins the Affinaquest board as Chairman.

Affinaquest will remain a privately held company serving the specialized needs of nonprofit institutions. Additionally, “Social Sector Ventures is providing funding to assure continued product innovation. We are also expanding strategic partnerships for consulting, integration and implementation services,” says Dr. Walvoord.

“Technology vendor consolidation has lead to a disconcerting array of discontinued products and services that disrupt rather than serve the nonprofit market,” says Dr. Walvoord. “Social Sector Ventures provides the funding that allows entrepreneurs and their families to fulfill their vision without losing control of their companies. Our goal is to create and grow companies focused on serving nonprofit institutions rather than on exploiting nonprofits to build monolithic companies. Entrepreneurs with a vision to change the world are creating an alternative value system by building best of breed companies that are built to serve--and thus built to last.”

With an unparalleled data model and innovative data architecture built on the award-winning salesforce.com platform, Affinaquest helps transform complex data into actionable information that nonprofit leaders can effectively use to build compelling campaigns and forge long-lasting relationships with donors, advocates and alumni.
