Turning Data Into Donors (Data2Donors) provides camps with the skills, tools, and resources to advance major donor fundraising and improve alumni outreach.

What is Data2Donors?

Good data practices will help sustain your camp for years to come. JCamp 180's Data2Donors program will provide you with a systematic and supportive approach to increasing the total number of accurate alumni records in your donor database, and then run your data through programs to help identify prospective major donors from among your camp's community. The result will be increased capacity to turn your database into donors.
