Institutions using the ABI platform and other solutions from Raising Insight are an active and ongoing collaborative community.

Users discuss emerging trends, exchange insights, and share report and analysis solutions. An online site specific to the user community facilitates distribution of content and material.

Innovation

The ABI platform originated as a response to the specific and specialized management reporting requirements of advancement practitioners. Every user institution is committed to the exchange of leading practice and advancing their respective operations. The result is an extraordinarily focused dialog and pursuit of ongoing innovations - innovations that are driven by the opportunities being addressed by the most sophisticated fundraising and development organizations.

Community

The community of ABI users maintains close contact with each other and are 'go to' resources. Their inputs, combined with those of the Raising Insight team, contribute to the ongoing evolution of the platform. Users exchange reports and visual presentation formats, identify trends and needs, and discuss how to adapt to the continually growing number of mobile and social resources that are of interest to fundraising professionals.

The concentrated focus of the discussion yields what many participants have identified as their most valuable network resource.

Annual Meeting

In addition to on line meetings and gatherings at industry specific conferences, the ABI users meet periodically. In July, ABI Institutions and prospective users convened on the Williams College campus in Williamstown, MA for two and a half days to exchange insights and information.
