At The Arthritis Society, we use a variety of prospecting tools to identify major gift prospects that have both the capacity and inclination to support our cause.  Ajah Fundtracker is my personal favourite and the starting point of all my prospect research projects.  I can always count on AJAH for access to the most up-to-date, relevant information at my fingertips.  In 2013, we even implemented Ajah Fundtracker in our development offices across Canada!

More Gifts & Grants

Identify trends with the most historical gifts and grants available

  • Up to 10 years of giving history for foundation and corporations, linked to recipient charities
  • Over 150,000 previously awarded government grants, linked to granting program and recipient charities
  • Ability to search all gifts by all funders in a specific sector, city and province.

More Competitive Information

It's not enough to do searches by funder and sector (although that's pretty important too). Take a look at the previous giving of funders and you'll find many that give outside of their stated mandates.

  • Review gifts & grants received by charities with mandates similar to yours, across the street or across the country
  • Identify donors likely to support your cause, even if it's not within their stated funding preferences
  • Review all gifts made by funders within a specific sector, city and province.

We have been using Fundtracker for two years. Being able to cross-reference the funders of similar charities has been invaluable in our fundraising efforts. In the last quarter alone, we identified approximately 40 new prospective funders to contact – funders we may not have identified without Fundracker.

I find Fundtracker very useful. I really like that it gives me a good picture about a foundation on one page. I also like the fact that I can search for directors to see what other foundations they’re affiliated with….Overall, the detailed granting histories are very helpful and allow me to quickly determine whether or not to approach a certain funder.

More search options

An effective funder search is one that includes filters and sorting options specific to the different types of funders. This means that when you search for foundation funders, you select different options than you would in a search for government granting opportunities. They are not the same type of funder so why should you search each funder using the same filters? The same holds true for our sort options.

More detailed profiles

Our funder profiles contain everything you need to make an educated decision about the viability of a specific prospect.

  • Up to 10 years of giving history on each profile
  • Interactive maps allow you to see at a glance exactly which region the funder is active in
  • Graphs and charts show stated interests and actual donations in each sector.

More testimonials from our clients

The National Theatre School has been using Fundtracker since 2010. Fundtracker is one of my tools I use daily in order to raise money for the NTS and I believe all of the tools I use are critical to our success.
Catherine Rideout, National Theatre School
Fundtracker is clear, easy-to-use and puts a tremendous amount of information together in a way that you can really use. Most importantly, Fundtracker delivers the results. It’s a winner. 
Robert F. Kissner, PhD, FocusBC
Fundtracker has become our first step in identifying and researching new funders. The ability to cross reference and review who a funder has granted to in the past is extremely useful. We recently completed a major proposal to a large foundation and Fundtracker was instrumental in helping us identify key contacts and specifics of who the foundation had supported in the past, allowing us to build a targeted proposal to this prospect.
Simon Bensimon, Canadian Friends of Hebrew University
Fundtracker is easy to use and helps organizations really target funders that are aligned with their programs, priorities and the people they serve. With more than half of the sector being all volunteer-run, it is especially important for smaller organizations to be able to access funds from sources that are not well known.
