DonorSearch and Tessitura are pleased to announce the launch of a fully redesigned integration,

engineered in partnership between DonorSearch and Tessitura’s development team. The new integration provides greatly enriched native functionality for generating individual profiles and batch screening results, while leveraging the advanced architecture of Tessitura’s Version 15 Integration Gateway and Business Analytics. With this new functionality, mutual clients can store crucial prospect intelligence in Tessitura as specific as the number of gifts and total dollars a patron has donated to other arts organizations — at the click of a button.

“Fundraising success is rooted in understanding the passions and values of the prospect — and then taking informed action. Taking action may mean reaching out to a longstanding stakeholder, or someone who only moments ago patronized your theater, museum, or zoo for the first time.  The synthesis of our philanthropic and wealth insights with Tessitura’s industry-leading engagement data makes for the fastest, most-granular, and reliable prospecting tool in the arts and culture space,” said Bill TeDesco, CEO and Founder, DonorSearch. 

The new DonorSearch integration with Tessitura is accomplished due to the automation capabilities of the Tessitura Network Integration Gateway partner connection service. This framework is utilized to enable the DonorSearch service to be integrated for any Tessitura member organization. The Integration Gateway is a connection tool for vital ecosystem partners and we’re excited to partner with DonorSearch so they can bring their philanthropic and wealth insights tools to our community to enable a seamless, rapid integration with their Tessitura enterprise system — their system of record. Tessitura is focused on the success of our member organizations, and not on profits. As a not-for-profit organization ourselves, we work hard to power the business of arts and culture through our best-in-class unifying Tessitura system, services focused on productivity for our member organizations, and knowledge and best practice sharing to enable ideas, tactics and thought leadership to flourish within the sectors we serve,” said Jack Rubin, Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder of the Tessitura Network.
