  • Top charities awarded for data insight driven fundraising

The second annual Insight in Fundraising Awards took place last night, 11th June, at a gala dinner at the Hotel Russell in London.  Charities and their data insight partners came together to celebrate excellence in insight driven fundraising, with RNIB, UNICEF UK, Comic Relief, Cancer Research UK, and RNLI among those winning awards for their work (full list below).

 The Insight in Fundraising Awards, an initiative of the IoF Insight in Fundraising Special Interest Group (IoF Insight SIG), reward best practice and innovation in harnessing data and insight to improve fundraising performance in the charity sector. This year’s event attracted a huge response with twice as many entries as in 2012 and the ceremony was attended by nearly 200 leading fundraisers and fundraising analysts.

 Top prizes were awarded in the following categories: Classic Analysis, Digital, Innovation, and Research.  Awards were also presented for Team of the Year, Supplier of the Year, and Outstanding Contribution. This last award went to John Whitehead of WaterAid for his outstanding contribution to educating others in the industry and in developing the areas of lifetime value modelling and attrition analysis.
