Are you a nonprofit marketer that relies on email to open doors and drive donations? If so, your success hinges on your ability to ensure that every email address in your database is clean, deliverable, and belongs to your intended recipient.

In today’s world, email is often the best (and only) way to reach your donors and members. If your campaigns don’t land in the inbox, your organization will never generate the opens, clicks, and donations it needs to thrive.

Did you know that 95+% of deliverability issues stem from problems with the underlying list? Every bad email address you collect is a lost opportunity and a potential deliverability threat. Poor data quality will result in bouncing emails, spamtraps, and other bad addresses, which can derail your entire email marketing program.
