Prior to working with Pursuant GivingDNA, Houston SPCA did not have a major gift program. They also had just opened their new Campus for All Animals facility in 2019 and needed steady funding to keep that project afloat as well as continue their existing programs. With the help of GivingDNA, HSPCA was able to identify potential mid- and major-level giving prospects. After an email and a few phone calls, HSPCA received five $100k gifts from donors who had previously given no more than $2,500 and they saw an increase of 26.8% donor engagement overall.Read More
The Pocket Testament League
For the past three years, The Pocket Testament League has been facing year-over-year declines in Gospel order revenue. They turned to Pursuant’s GivingDNA™ Platform for strategic insight to determine which constituents to target in their phone outreach campaign.

These efforts led to a 34% increase in the average gift and a 26% year-over-year increase in revenue.Read More
