Based on current results, nonprofits that use ExactAsk software have experienced an average $11.47 increase in overall revenue per gift, as well as an average of $0.34 more per marketing message sent. Nonprofits have raised an average of $15,181.36 in additional funds through the implementation of personalized ask amounts with almost no extra work or time required from their fundraising teams.

ExactAsk in Action

Many lapsed donors began contributing again (and giving more than they did historically) after a period of absence, and newly acquired and repeat donors contributed more than expected when contacted with an exact Ask amount.
