What is ExactAsk?

The solution to an age-old fundraising problem: How much to ask for from a donor?

By using a patented artificial intelligence algorithm that has been fine-tuned for individual fundraising, ExactAsk is able to predict the precise amount each donor is most likely to give, thereby significantly improving fundraising levels.


Unlike other fundraising solutions that are based on simple demographics, wealth data, location or other generalized donor information, the ExactAsk AI platform identifies the optimal level of giving for each individual donor.

For example, here’s a common donor encounter:

Donor A receives $50 donation request email on Wednesday based on ExactAsk’s recommended ask amount.

Donor A clicks on donation form but decides not to donate. ExactAsk receives additional data on Donor A and automatically updates the Ask Amount based on the new data. Donor A goes back and checks his email on Monday and clicks through to the donation form again and sees the new Ask Amount and then decides to donate.
