Donor Relations/Customer Service: University of California, Berkeley - Gold Medal
Best Practice Endowment financial reporting in the decentralized fundraising environment at the University of California, Berkeley, led to several business problems. The solution had three principal components: 1) the development of business practices for maintaining linkages between funds and people and for recording opt-out situations, 2) the formation of a multi-disciplinary team to develop a data model that would bring disparate data into one place, and 3) the decision to outsource the preparation and mailing of reports to a vendor with variable printing capabilities. It also had an overarching "mass-customization" philosophy that relied on using technology to tackle the issue of scale.
