    DATA MINING FOR FUND RAISERS: HOW TO USE SIMPLE STATISTICS TO FIND GOLD IN YOUR DONOR DATABASE (EVEN IF YOU HATE STATISTICS). Peter B. Wylie. New York : Council for Advancement and Support of Education, 2004. 90pp. Main Library Stacks HV41.5 .W955 2004
    Statistics can help nonprofit organizations save money on fundraising mailings and telephone calls, improve rates of response to annual appeals, and identify people who may become major donors, writes Peter B. Wylie, a fundraising consultant at Margolis-Wylie Associates, in Washington. One of the keys to using statistics in fund raising, says Mr. Wylie, is developing a rating system to evaluate potential donors. He advises fund raisers to pull pieces of demographic information from their databases---such as donors' age and marital status---that might be linked to support for their group. Drawing from his experience with university databases, he suggests categories that are often highly correlated with giving, such as whether an alumnus lists a business phone number or an e-mail address. Mr. Wylie describes simple statistical tests that can show how those attributes relate to past giving patterns. Using attributes that strongly correlate with contributing, fund raisers can develop scoring systems specific to their organizations. Mr. Wylie says that once a group has assigned a score to each person in its database, it can decide on whom to focus appeals. If, for example, an organization does not have enough money to send mailings to everyone in its database, it can limit mailings to donors with high scores.

This special issue discusses varied aspects of direct and interactive marketing, its role in generating and building donor relationships, the impact of data protection legislation in Europe and the US, fundraising trends since September 11, and "face-to-face" marketing, an emerging new fundraising medium that successfully attracts a new generation of charity donors. With a focus on strategies in Internet fundraising, and the lessons learned so far, this issue is also an excellent guide to nonprofits investing in technology or expanding their online presence.
