Our Approach

Better research

Five full-time researchers work for us – and for you – creating funder profiles that are in-depth and complete.

More up-to-date

Our unique processes ensure that Fundtracker Pro’s data is constantly up-dated.

More opportunities

More opportunities make it easier to identify funders inside and outside of your sector.

Diversified funding

Too many non-profit organizations rely on a sole funder and exist in a constant fear of shutting down.  Fundtracker makes it easy to approach a variety of funders to create a healthier and more stable organization.

Follow the Money

Fundtracker Pro is the only prospect research tool that makes it easy to look at the previous funders of other charities, helping you identify funders you may have missed if you’re using the traditional methods of searching.


Background

Fundraising & Prospect Research Meet Data

We are a Montreal-based software company that builds tools that the Canadian non-profit sector needs. We combine open and public data with our own research to help funders and non-profits better understand the patterns, and specifically the risks and opportunities in their funding environment. The founders of Ajah have backgrounds in community development, software development and web entrepreneurship. We have an established record of developing easy-to-use, innovative software for the community sector.

With advisors from Canada, the USA and the UK, our non-profit initiative, PoweredbyData, helps stakeholders collect and publish transactional, contextual and impact data about the non-profit sector that is open and interoperable.
