The work of development professionals is hard. Hillcrest Advancement Strategies is here to make it a little easier. Harnessed with the power of data, our services give fundraisers and their organizations an extra edge to meet their goals and increase support for their organizations’ vital missions.

Whether you need one complete donor profile to find connections to a new prospect, wealth screening of your entire database to uncover major gift potential, a new suite of donation reports, or something in between, Hillcrest Advancement is here to help hardworking, dedicated nonprofit professionals become even more successful.
