Donor mapping is a very efficient way to broaden your donor base and increase your funding. You learn all about the donor´s thematic interest, application procedures and geographical focus. This will increase your chances to get funded significantly as the donor is a perfect match for your project and your organisation.
What is a donor mapping?
A donor mapping is a research process during which we identify up to 30 high potential donors for you. This can either be done for a specific project, a program or your organisation in general.
Which benefits does a mapping have for us?
A professional donor mapping helps you to broaden your donor base by identifying new and suitable donors for you. It will also save you time and resources by outsourcing this process to experts and by avoiding to send proposals to low prospect donors.
How does it work?
- You tell us for which project/program/organisation you are looking for donor via our questionnaire
- We skype together to clearly understand your needs
- We carry out the research
- You receive a word document with up to 30 potential donors

Which sources do you consult for the mapping?
We access our in-house database TripleFunds, additional databases (i.e. only for American foundations), foundation directories, annual reports of similar organisations, online research (keyword search) of any other sources that we are familiar with. We screen over 500,000 donors in total.

Is the donor mapping done individually for us?
A donor mapping is done exclusively for you and we are not passing on this document to any other organisation. We are doing the research for each mapping from scratch. We do not use generic data.
How many pages does the mapping document have?
The mapping has 25-30 pages. Each donor is described on one page. The format is Word.
