We revolutionized fundraising in higher ed so colleges and universities could achieve more than they ever dreamed possible

Our Mission

Reeher was acquired by Blackbaud in 2018 and has been transforming the way colleges and universities raise money since 2002. The Reeher Platform is the industry’s first shared management system designed to help college and university fundraisers predict their best donors and uncover hidden prospects in their own databases. The combination of web and mobile solutions helps fundraising teams:

  • Identify new high-value donors
  • Instantly access the tools and information they need to measure performance
  • Gain new insights from more than 140 peer schools within the Reeher Community network

Our product is designed to improve performance for college and university fundraisers by providing predictive metrics and tools for officers and managers that turn insights into results. As a result, our customers are using their existing resources to gain more first-time major gifts, reverse declining trends in annual giving, and increase overall dollars and donors.

Put simply, we exist to help higher ed institutions raise more money and spend less doing it.

The Power of Reeher

In FY2017, Reeher Platform members harnessed the power of the shared management system to raise $5 billion from more than 2 million donors. Colleges and universities using the Reeher Platform identify up to 64 percent more high-potential prospective donors not previously assigned to a gift officer. They recover nearly 30 percent of wasted fundraising time, money, and energy.

A Message from CEO Andy Reeher

When I started in higher education fundraising, I looked at where institutions were spending their budgets, and found that they were losing money on 97 percent of their relationships. That led to the idea of putting a management system in place instead of a donor database.

In short, Reeher exists to help universities raise more money and spend less doing it.

We know the industry. We have had the opportunity to work with some of the world’s best fundraisers to incorporate what is unique about university development into what works when applying data to the management process.

Our team members understand the world of higher education advancement, as well as database mining, predictive modeling, campaign management and the process of managing knowledge-based organizations.
