Professional Employer Append Services for Nonprofits
Boost your corporate giving revenue with employer insights from NPOInfo.
Employer appends are a specific data appending service in which organizations seek employment information for their supporters. In most cases, this means locating an employer name and job role for each constituent.
Appending this information allows an organization to develop comprehensive donor profiles that allow fundraisers to tap into corporate giving opportunities.
To get started, you’ll simply share your donor data with a services provider like NPOInfo who then uses proprietary screening and identification methods to locate employment information for your individual donors. Then, they’ll return your file with any employer data found during the appending process.
Even though more than 18 million individuals work for companies with matching gift programs, $4-7 billion in potential matching gift revenue goes unclaimed every year, according to corporate giving research.
That’s because 78% of match-eligible donors don’t know that their employer will match their donations!
NPOInfo employer appends can close this gap. You provide a few key data points about your donors, and in as many cases as possible, we provide the name of their employer and whether that company offers a matching gift program.
Let NPOInfo empower your organization to claim the matching gift revenue your donors are missing out on with our employer appends!
Any organization can benefit from employer appends. However, the organizations that will see the highest append rates and the most accurate results are those that maintain a high standard of donor data hygiene.
To determine if your organization can expect a high level of accuracy from an employer append, ask the following questions:
If you answered yes to all or some of these questions, NPOInfo can likely return a higher accuracy rate in your employer append results!
NPOInfo’s data appending services will empower you to pinpoint various corporate giving opportunities your team might be overlooking by filling in employment gaps in your database. Our trusted experts have direct access to a database that allows us to append this information, helping you verify and update employment data quickly.
Here are some of the benefits you can expect from creating comprehensive constituent profiles, complete with the most recent employer data for your supporters:
Connect your donors with the corporate matching gift programs they’re eligible for, and take advantage of the extra revenue from those programs.
When reaching out based on data from an employer append, point to your existing connection through your donors. Companies will be more willing to sponsor your next event!
Companies that are already connected to you through your donor base are more likely to partner with you for full-scale corporate fundraisers.
Appending employer data can help you find companies that will donate on behalf of their employees who volunteer with your organization.
At NPOInfo, we believe that employer appends can be incredibly beneficial for any nonprofit that’s looking to expand its horizons through corporate giving. That’s why our team highly recommends employer appends for many different types of nonprofits!
Here are a few of our favorite examples, so you can get an idea of how this service can impact your mission.
Many alumni associations want to connect current students with alumni in their field. Knowing where alumni work allows these associations to set up students for success and provide mentorship opportunities for alumni!
Arts and cultural organizations generally benefit greatly from corporate sponsorships! These organizations strategically plan to secure essential corporate partners for their next initiative with the data from an employer append.
Securing the cornerstone grouping of major donors to a hospital foundation capital campaign is the first step toward proving feasibility. Employer appends provide major gifts officers with the data they need to have meaningful conversations.
Professional associations can provide essential career connections for members. Employer appends provide a solid starting point for the web of connections that distinguish the best professional associations.
If you’re looking to strengthen supporter profiles by filling in their missing employment data, the process is incredibly simple with our employer appending services.
You simply provide us with any identifying information you have for your constituents, such as their names or contact information. Then, we search our database, match them to their employment data, and conduct checks to verify that we’ve identified the right individual and their most recent employer.
As soon as we return your results, you can follow up on any corporate giving opportunities, whether you’re searching for sponsors, growing your matching gift revenue, or pursuing volunteer grants.
Plus, if your data needs extend beyond employer appends, we also offer plenty of other data appending services, like email address appending, phone number appending, date of birth appending, and postal address appending.
- Unique ID number
- Name (either in a single field or multiple fields)

Most organizations do not have all of this information on hand for all constituents, but providing as much information as possible helps with our employer identification and accuracy ratings!
- Found flag*
- Employer name
- Matching gift program flag**
- Job title (when possible)
- Accuracy rating***
*This flag indicates whether we believe we found the supporter and have identified where the supporter works in our employer append.
**This flag indicates whether the supporter’s employer offers a matching gift program.
***The accuracy rating is a percentage demonstrating how confident we are that we correctly identified the right person and his or her employer based on the information your organization provided to us.
What percent of my donors should I expect to receive employer information for?
Usually, NPOInfo is able to identify employment data for around 20-50% of your supporters. Your results will depend greatly on the amount and quality of information about your constituents that you’re able to provide to our team!
How does NPOInfo calculate its accuracy score for each record?
As part of your employer append results, you’ll also receive an accuracy rating. This accuracy rating is our way of conveying our confidence in each result. A higher accuracy rating is better than a lower one.
There are many factors that can influence an accuracy rating, including how unique the supporter’s information is, how much data was provided for the donor, and even the frequency of updates to the data sources we used to identify the donor’s employer.
What types of nonprofits receive the most comprehensive employer append results?
Typically, organizations with really comprehensive data are well-positioned for employer appends. That might mean having accurate contact information, their approximate geographic location, or even where they went to school.
The more information you can provide, the more NPOInfo has to go on. Historically, educational institutions and membership-based organizations usually fall into these categories since they naturally gather in-depth data on their constituents.
