Giving Score is a a financial demographics tool that allows clients to target and identify the best supporters in The Raiser's Edge (version 7.92 and higher) as well as The Raiser's Edge (i). The Giving Score assigns a rating to constituents by applying Smart Analytics to the database, segmenting constituents into four unique groups, and helping identify who is more likely and/or capable to give.
Some clients would like to know how often this tool should be used.
The running of the Giving Score for your donors is free as part of client maintenance. It's recommended to run it upon updating to version 7.92. After that, we recommend updates only as needed on an ongoing basis, perhaps after importing a large group of new records, or after a giving campaign is finished and a large number of new gifts have been added to the database, or any other time it might be needed.
