At iWave Information Systems, we come to work every day to help our clients as they make the World a better place. It’s simple: in order for nonprofits to be successful in their fundraising efforts, they need to know their prospects and donors.

For over 25 years we’ve been developing these online solutions to help prospect researchers, fundraisers, and other development professionals determine WHO to ask, HOW MUCH to ask for, and WHEN to ask.

Our products are created solely for healthcare, education, and nonprofit organizations. It’s one of the things that sets iWave apart. We keep this focus to ensure that we develop and optimize solutions for the specific goals and challenges of the nonprofit sector.

Our online prospect research tool is a proven asset for fundraising departments of any size. From Ivy league schools like Yale and Stanford, to healthcare and arts organizations like Doctors Without Borders and the Smithsonian Institution, iWave has assisted over 6000 organizations in the United States, Canada, and overseas.
