The Mapping Tool Series puts fundraising startup on the map

    Donor Gateway Inc. delivers a new standard in research information

    TORONTO, Feb. 19 /CNW/ - Donor Gateway Inc. (DGI) today announced The
Mapping Tool Series, the first ever library of databases to provide
comprehensive listings and "relationship maps" of key contacts and other
strategic resources for nonprofit organizations. The Mapping Tool Series sets
a new standard in the fundraising field with invaluable insight to potential
donors' affinity for a cause, their ability to give, and access routes through
which to reach them.
    Created by seasoned Canadian fundraising professionals, The Mapping Tool
Series delivers an essential, time-saving resource for development officers,
fundraising executives, researchers, and fundraising consultants.
    Founded by Emily MacKinnon and Anissa Hilborn, CFRE, fundraising
executives with more than 25 years combined experience and a proven track
record of success, DGI is committed to elevating the practice of fundraising
in Canada. Seeing a real need for comprehensive, user-friendly
information-based products, MacKinnon and Hilborn formed DGI to develop The
Mapping Tool Series.
    "DGI delivers research information solutions that can't be found anywhere
else," said Emily MacKinnon, CEO, Donor Gateway Inc. "By developing our
products as fundraisers, for fundraisers, we're able to provide the most
user-friendly and comprehensive research experience possible."
    The first product in The Mapping Tool Series, the Canadian Nonprofit
Director Edition, is now available and features information on more than
12,000 Canadian nonprofit directors. The Canadian Nonprofit Director Edition
lets users quickly perform a number of research tasks, including search by an
individual's name for a listing of all the nonprofit boards he or she sits on,
search by organization name to obtain a full list of its board members, or
search by nonprofit sector or geographic region.
    "What sets The Mapping Tool Series apart from other databases is its
unique relationship-mapping function", says Anissa Hilborn, President, Donor
Gateway Inc. "With the click of a mouse, users can instantly see a visual
representation of the relationship links between directors, the boards they
sit on, the peers they are affiliated with by board membership, and the
nonprofit sectors they support."
    The Canadian Nonprofit Director Edition is available for purchase as a
downloadable database, priced for a limited time at an introductory offer rate
of $299.00 CAD. To purchase a copy, visit Additional
databases are currently in development and MacKinnon and Hilborn expect to
offer those editions beginning in late 2008.
