WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU.
Our Survey Lab team works with you to develop surveys that get to the core of what your development staff needs to know. Our services include:
- Attitude and opinion surveys
Attitude and opinion surveys help Survey Lab clients understand key stakeholders’ developing interests and attitudes toward philanthropic giving. These surveys uncover constituents’ interests, perceptions, opinions, motivations, and concerns. Clients of the Survey Lab gain knowledge invaluable to development, communications, and donor stewardship. Attitude and opinion surveys may be customized to target a particular program area, audience segment, donor profile, or fundraising initiative.
- Prospect identification surveys
Prospect identification and qualification surveys help Survey Lab clients identify prospects who demonstrate increased affinity and likelihood to make gifts. Identification surveys are not anonymous and ask overt questions about philanthropy, interest areas, and financial information. Survey results augment prospect research with the direct responses of the prospect. These surveys empower Survey Lab clients to develop a qualified prospect pool with known interest in philanthropy in all non-profit sectors.
- Donor, alumni, and stewardship satisfaction surveys
Especially useful as longitudinal surveys, satisfaction surveys evaluate the level of satisfaction with specific services provided by a client to constituents. Survey Lab satisfaction survey projects help clients evaluate stewardship programs, alumni communications, membership benefits, and donor society effectiveness to drive informed decision-making around what constituents love, and what could use improving.
- Message-testing surveys
In partnership with GG+A’s Communications practice, message-testing surveys enable clients developing campaign or institutional branding and communications materials to make decisions based on what their constituents find most compelling. The Survey Lab creates communications surveys based around understanding market segments, soliciting feedback on themes and materials, and assessing existing or proposed communications. These surveys can also include focus group components.
- Custom surveys
The Survey Lab is proud to offer a high level of customization for all surveys. Your organization is unique – your survey should be, too.

We looked at GG+A at an important time for our school – to guide us in building a comprehensive major gifts program that could thrive outside of a major campaign.
