Building a seamless endowment reporting process between finance and advancement services

Anyone who has survived “Endowment Reporting Season” is familiar with the delays and pain points. The Finance Office wants to make sure the fund data is accurate. Donor Relations wants to make sure they have permission to release the numbers. Fundraisers are eager to get reports to their managed prospects, but they’re not fluent in fund management and distribution.

Silos. Sigh.
