Higher Education

Our first clients were almost exclusively Higher Education.  Today, we help more than 2,000 four year school and several hundred community colleges annually engage donors through matching gifts, wealth identification and data enrichment.   Many of our clients have been with HEPdata for more than a decade such as Duke, USC, Iowa State, Drexel, U Florida, Kansas and Kansas State, etc. 

Non-profit Organizations

Most non-profits find HEP when they are looking to grow their matching gift program, but they quickly realize HEPdata can help them engage donors at many levels by providing data that helps with annual appeals, leadership gifts, major gifts, corporate relations and volunteer work.  In fact, our fastest growing market segment is the non-profit with more than 5,000 annual clients.

Private/Public Schools

Raising funds for a small school can be a challenge.  While the engagement process  is often with the parent at first, over time alumni become ever important to a fundraising strategy.  HEP helps nearly 1,000 private and public schools annually identify which parents and alumni are match eligible and we provide a matching gift solution for your website to promote matching gifts as well as your appeals.   We also provide cell/home phone, email, employer and address appends.   In addition, we can identify your major donors through WealthTracker.


“I was incredibly impressed with HEPdata. The amount of first destination data they were able to collect on our recent graduates will go a long way in helping us accurately report the outcomes of our students, as well as allow us to better connect with our alumni. HEPdata was fast, responsive, and thorough – it was money very well spent!”
– Jeff Sackaroff Associate Director of External Relations University Career Services The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

“Employer find helps us to identify employer names where we had no previous information. It is a great starting point to help target our corporate gatherings. With this information we can also refine our matching gift and corporate giving programs, so that we can target the appropriate companies for support, reduce costs and become more efficient, while also improving the quality of our database.”

-Michael DiSarno. Executive Director of Advancement Services St. John’s University


“We were ecstatic about hitting $500,000  in matching gifts over 5 years considering we were a private Catholic School High School with a very small staff and 10K alums. Having  E-Match Donor Link and access to the HEPdata database was vital to our success.”

-Chris Copley. Major Gifts Consultant


“Data is at the foundation of all we do within the field of Advancement.  Utilizing the services and expertise of HEPdata has been an important strategy for industry leaders.  HEPdata positively contributes to our bottom line.” 

-Michael Westfall
Vice President of University Advancement
Oakland University


We’ve been a HEPdata client for 17 years or more.  One of our former associates tried a competitor and, frankly, all we got was double the trouble.  HEPdata is the leader in matching gifts… Period!
