Most Powerful Use of Insight impacting the longer-term

Another new category for this year - this award focuses on the ability of insight to deliver long term strategic impact. We want to recognise those projects that have contributed significantly to a fundraising organisation strategy, or have been shown after a number of years to have delivered long term value. A great entry would pass the "so what?" test - how has the insight changed the trajectory of the organisation.

Entries must demonstrate the impact that the insight project had on the longer term fundraising. In addition to looking for excellence in the way the insight project was planned and run, we want to see how it was used by the fundraising team and the impact it had for them and their donor(s).

May be entered by any IoF member fundraising organisation (in tandem with their supplier(s) where appropriate). As a guide, the project's time span can be any time within the last five years.

Results and insights:
Summarise the key results and insights delivered by the project. It is essential that you can demonstrate the benefits that the insight provided for the fundraising team and the effectiveness of their fundraising strategy and/or campaigns; the emphasis here is on the longer term impact. Please note that the provision of results is vital for the judging process and must be supplied. If you do not wish specific results to be published, please indicate this. However, please do consider providing measures that can be made public to explain why your project was successful, for example, by indexing etc. (300 words max).
