About iWave

iWave is a wealth screening software solution that organizations in the government, education, and healthcare sectors, faith-based communities, and non-profit organizations collect philanthropic and biographic information about prospective donors. The platform enables managers to identify new prospects and analyze the behavior of current donors.

Administrators can set up and prioritize personalized parameters such as giving interests and capacity using the wealth screening tool. iWave allows operators to receive alerts regarding obituaries, newsworthy mentions, and other donor-related information. Teams can also visualize data across donors’ mortgage information and charitable giving database to estimate donors’ capacity.

iWave lets businesses add filters to define custom search criteria and generate lists of prospective corporate donors. Supervisors can also gain real-time insights into prospects’ career history, personal interests, relationships, gift capacity, board affiliations, and other details on a centralized dashboard.

My favorite resource, paid or otherwise, would definitely have to be iWave, with the reason being that it offers effectively everything (with the only exception being the lack of capacity calculator). It is always my first stop when trying to find anything from contact information to job titles to stock data, it very often provides even more complete and comprehensive giving information than Research Point, and its company search feature is an incredibly useful tool indeed. My job would be significantly more difficult without it.

Pros

The product has the ablility to search from contact information to Job titles to Stock data. It very often provides even more complete and comprehensive giving information than Research Point, and its company search feature is an incredibly useful tool indeed.

Cons

iWave has a lack of capacity calculator which would help gauge an individuals total wealth.

Response from iWave Information Systems

Hi Matthew, thank you for your review!

iWave Capacity is an estimated five-year dollar amount of what an individual could potentially give. To learn more about iWave's capacity calculation, please reach out to your Client Success Manager or our support team, we'd be happy to hear any feedback you have!

My Preferred Software for Prospect Research

Reviewed on 2022/01/27

iWave helps me conduct thorough prospect research on our client's donors.

iWave helps me conduct thorough prospect research on our client's donors.

Pros

iWave provides a plethora of features that make conducting prospect research easy and allows me to use my time efficiently. Most importantly, iWave is up-to-date with their information and they are always rolling out new features.

Cons

One feature I would like to see created is a feature that allows you to remove foundations from search results that do not accept unsolicited grant applications/LOI's. Foundation Directory Online has such a feature so I often find myself having to use it to "weed out" foundations from my search results when I need to find ones that accept unsolicited grant applications/LOI's.

Hi Brian, thank you for your review! Great suggestion, I've forwarded along to our team!

In general, I find iWave to be a friendly and responsive company to work with. If I have an issue, I get a prompt, human response. It doesn't hurt that at my annual conference, they throw the best, most imaginative parties :)

Pros

I love that I can do multiple searches with just one input, so it really gives me a snapshot of the person I'm looking for. I really like that they include screenings in with the subscription, which for our purposes is all we need. I like that I can do separate searches in specific databases if I need to.

Cons

When searching for somebody with a common name, the results tend to come back with any name that starts with those same 2-3 letters, so "Mary Miller" will also pull Margaret and Margie and Marjorie and Martha, and there's no way to limit to just the Marys.

Response from iWave Information Systems

Hi Jane, thank you for your review and for your honest feedback regarding common names. I have passed along that feedback to our team so they can review.

PS: We hope to see you at some conferences in person this year!

I have used iWave across three different organizations. I have experience with other similar products and have found iWave to be the most user-friendly. This allows a wide variety of development team members to use the product to their advantage, even if they have not had a great deal of experience with prospect research tools.

Pros

I appreciate the product's user friendly design. I have not personally used iWave for bulk screenings (although another user within our company has), but I find it very easy to find and understand information on individual and institutional prospects that is helpful to my fundraising success.

Cons

In the past, I found the feature that creates individual profiles to be cumbersome and lacking in flexibility, which prevents a customized profile to be generated. I almost never use this feature as a result.

Response from iWave Information Systems

Hi Eva, thank you for your review. Please reach out to your Client Success Manager or our support team regarding profiles, we've made some improvements that you may be pleased with!
