Why Go Paperless in Gift Processing

By learning about the impact going paperless had at the University of Utah, you will be able to understand how it can elevate the accountability, transparency, and efficiency of the gift intake, development, and donor relations processes.

Using Data to Showcase Benefits

By starting with your institution’s most influential departments, you will learn how to achieve buy-in with the remainder of the essential stakeholders on campus.
