iWave Announces New Platform Enhancements Including New Functionality For Efficiency And Productivity, Industry-Leading Analytics, Data Security And Privacy.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND, CANADA, September 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — iWave, the industry’s top-rated and most advanced fundraising intelligence solution, is excited to announce its newest platform enhancements which includes new functionality for efficiency and productivity, industry-leading analytics, and a continued emphasis on data security and privacy.

iWave’s new platform incorporates leading-edge technology such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, and is built on next-generation architecture that lays the foundation for continued innovation and growth. For clients, this means faster and more reliable results, more functionality, as well as additional data and integrations.

These new features, available now and through the end of the year, use iWave’s advanced analytics, continuously refreshed data, wealth, propensity and affinity scores, and actionable insights to help both researchers and fundraisers turn quality data into actionable intelligence.

Highlights of the newest enhancements include:

Efficiency and Productivity: the fastest way to find and prioritize your most-likely prospects

Company and Foundation Screening
iWave’s Company Screening is the first of its kind. This feature uses complex algorithms to identify businesses and foundations that are most likely to give to your organization, and it uncovers areas of opportunity within your database.

Automated Screening Capabilities
iWave offers a hands-off screening process that enables you to automate the upload and delivery of screening results using a Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).

Grateful Patient Screening
iWave’s Grateful Patient Screening segments hundreds or thousands of patients so healthcare organizations can prioritize those with the greatest capacity and inclination to give. This time-saving feature also enables organizations to upload a list of major donors to see if a patient is a past major donor.

Actionable Intelligence: the power of data and analytics to deliver actionable insights

For researchers and fundraisers, iWave’s suite of billions of wealth, philanthropic, and biographic data points deliver robust insights with simple and approachable queries and the ability to dive deep for those that need to.

iWave’s analytics solutions are based on three pillars of analytics: Descriptive Analytics, Predictive Analytics, and Summary Analytics.

Descriptive Analytics
iWave’s Descriptive Analytics include scores and ratings, as well as features like Multi-lens Scoring that are based on external data and internal organization-specific data. These analytical outputs help organizations segment and prioritize their prospects and donors, and they power iWave’s predictive analytics. iWave’s newest descriptive analytics include a Giving Velocity to identify donors whose giving trend is increasing or decreasing, and the industry’s first Multi-lens Scoring feature that enables organizations to view screening results under multiple settings depending on their fundraising goals.

Predictive Analytics
iWave’s Predictive Analytics uses advanced algorithms to combine descriptive analytic values and deliver actionable insights on how to cultivate and engage prospects and donors. These analytics can also help nonprofits segment and prioritize donors at a more granular level. The newest additions within iWave’s predictive analytics area are Cultivation and Engagement insights that help you understand how to communicate with your prospects and donors.

Summary Analytics
iWave’s Summary Analytics gives you a high-level overview of your search activities and profiles to help you build your fundraising strategy. For example, you can view the demographic breakdown of a portfolio and identify gaps or patterns.

Data Security and Privacy: a requirement, not an option

iWave has always been focused on ensuring we are data security and privacy compliant and continue to look ahead as to what’s going to be required. Data security and privacy are critical for our clients to ensure business continuity, avoid data breaches and prevent unauthorized access. That’s why iWave adheres to industry standards and regulations, conducts ongoing risk assessments, continually assesses infrastructure, and is careful in selecting data and technology partners.

In addition to powerful cybersecurity tools and encryption mechanisms, iWave now offers multi-factor authentication so clients can validate the identity of their users and protect sensitive information. This added layer of security also boosts the flexibility of remote employees.

Additional new features already launched this year

Since the launch of iWave’s cloud-native architecture in March, we have also been able to accelerate the release of many new features including:

– Wealth screening enhancements to provide nonprofits with the fastest and easiest way to find and prioritize top prospects including 26 additional data insights
– Customizable prospect profiles that allow users to add custom donation and real estate records to capture the full picture of a donor
– Access to new and comprehensive data including News and Obituaries with Alerts, Luxury Aircraft ownership and the industry’s first Real Estate Equalizer
– New and enhanced third-party integrations with Raiser’s Edge NXT and Salesforce so you can access wealth and philanthropic information within your donor database

“We pride ourselves in providing innovations quickly that will have an impact on your organization even more rapidly. We are not short on ideas or capabilities to expand our platforms exponentially due to our recent investments but we continue to prioritize them based on our clients needs”, said Mary Cote, VP Product, iWave.

"As a development department, we work towards excellence, and we want to make use of the best tools and technology available to help us do our jobs as efficiently as possible. iWave's new interface is so user-friendly that our whole team has embraced the platform and its advanced technology. iWave has increased our professionalism and our opportunities for success and it has become a big part of our preparation for excellence".

Jim Ragotzkie on Church Music in the COVID-19 Age

Many scientists consider singing, wind instruments unsafe, says Jim Ragotzkie

ALBANY, NY, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — COVID-19 has changed how individuals accomplish almost all of their everyday tasks, from shopping to working to recreational pursuits. The virus also has changed how they worship. One challenge for church leaders is how to provide meaningful worship experiences without the use of vocal music or wind instruments. Churches can meet this challenge in creative ways, says church musician Jim Ragotzkie.

Most scientists consider singing and the use of wind instruments to be risky, says Jim Ragotzkie. Singing creates aerosols, which are super-fine droplets that travel several feet and linger in the air for a long time. Singing also makes more aerosols than breathing or talking. Typically, talking produces ten times the aerosols that breathing does, and singing produces 60 times the aerosols. The deep breathing required in singing also inhales aerosols deeper in the lungs, and masks do not adequately protect against fine aerosols, says Jim Ragotzkie.

Wind instruments also initiate a spray of aerosols and require deep breathing and forceful exhalation. A peer-reviewed study of the vuvuzela found that this instrument produced 100 times the aerosols of breathing. While peer-reviewed studies of other instruments have not been released, anecdotal evidence is that other wind instruments, especially horns, are risky, says Jim Ragotzkie.

Churches, however, can use other types of music and rhythm in worship. For example, if churches have the technology required, a soloist or family ensemble could record songs at home that are then played to the congregation. They could use instrumental music from non-wind instruments, says Jim Ragotzkie. Worship leaders also could encourage the congregation to participate by clapping or playing small percussion instruments. Worship can feature more handbell choirs. Soloists also could teach songs to the congregation online that they can sing at home during the week, Jim Ragotzkie says.

Choir members also could use this time as a way to reach out to the congregation. For example, they could ask each member his or her favorite hymn and call them during the week to sing it to them. During the call, they also could discover any pastoral needs, says Jim Ragotzkie.

Music directors also can choose hymns for meditation. They could send the hymn of the week, with lyrics, out to the congregation several days ahead of time and invite the congregation to meditate on the hymn throughout the week, says Jim Ragotzkie. The worship service might then include a time when congregants share their reflections, either oral, written, or illustrated, with the rest of the congregation, says Jim Ragotzkie.

Jim Ragotzkie is a church organist and member of the American Guild of Organists in New Albany, NY, and the Association of Lutheran Musicians. Jim Ragotzkie also is a member of the Jubilate Singers.

Religion adds $67.5 billion to Canadian economy every year

New research suggests religion produces measurable economic contributions to the common good

Religion is an active force in the public, professional, and private lives of many Canadians and contributes to the common good of all, including those who are not religious.”

— Brian Dijkema, vice president of external relations at Cardus

OTTAWA, ON, CANADA, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A $67.5-BILLION ANNUAL INVESTMENT IN CANADIAN SOCIETY
New research suggests religion produces measurable economic contributions to the common good

This study provides the first documented quantitative national estimates of the economic value of religion to Canadian society. The study was conducted for Cardus by the veteran father-daughter research team, Brian J. Grim, Ph.D., and Melissa E. Grim, JD, of the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Amid pandemic-related job loss and economic worries, new research suggests there is a sector of Canadian society that plays an important, but often unrecognized, economic role: religion. The Hidden Economy: How Faith Helps Fuel Canada’s GDP, a new report from think tank Cardus, finds that religion’s annual contribution to Canadian society is worth an estimated $67.5 billion. That’s large enough to be the ninth biggest enterprise in the country – ahead of the Bank of Montreal.

The $67.5 billion figure is the mid-range estimate in The Hidden Economy: How Faith Helps Fuel Canada’s GDP. More than half of the $67.5 billion figure comes from the activities of tens of thousands of religious congregations (churches, temples, mosques, and synagogues) in Canada. Nationwide, they have a $35-billion “halo effect” – the value congregations provide to their surrounding communities. 

Canadian Religious Congregations’ Halo Effect

The halo effect of religious congregations is a well-studied phenomenon. For more information on the halo effect in Canada, including municipality-specific calculations, please visit haloproject.ca. Also see related research on the United States here.

The balance of religion’s estimated $67.5 billion contribution to Canadian society comes through activities related to schooling, health care systems, charities, media, lives saved through congregational substance abuse support programs, as well as kosher and halal food sales.

“Religion is an active force in the public, professional, and private lives of many Canadians and contributes to the common good of all, including those who are not religious,” said Brian Dijkema, vice president of external relations at Cardus. “If religious activity is hindered—through zoning, regulation, taxation, or even intolerance—there are massive economic spill-over effects that negatively affect Canadians as a whole. We all benefit economically when religious life thrives.”

Jewish Council of the Emirates Steps Out of the Shadows: “Shana Tova from the World’s Youngest Jewish Community”

Amid historic week of peace deals, the United Arab Emirates' burgeoning Jewish community extends its Rosh Hashanah wishes.

DUBAI, UAE, September 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Concluding an already-celebratory week in which leaders of the United Arab Emirates and Israel signed an historic peace agreement normalizing diplomatic relations, the Jewish Council of the Emirates (JCE) has ushered in Rosh Hashanah with both a sense of hope and newfound permanence in the Middle East.

Returning to Dubai after witnessing the Abraham Accords’ signing ceremony on the White House South Lawn, JCE President Ross Kriel expressed the that the deal would have on the Emirates’ burgeoning Jewish community in the year ahead.

“Rosh Hashanah is always a day of celebration and remembrance, and to all of the JCE community’s supporters around the globe, these themes carry new meaning this year,” Kriel said. “Shana Tova from the world’s youngest Jewish community, and may the year ahead be guided by the beacon of light that was lit this week.”

Prior to JCE’s COVID-19-adapted Rosh Hashanah service in Duabi, the community will welcome His Excellency Yousef Al Otaiba, the U.A.E.’s Ambassador to the United States, for a virtual Rosh Hashanah address. Joining from Washington, Ambassador Al Otaiba’s role will reflect an unprecedented official state participation at a Jewish religious observance.

JCE’s Chief Rabbi, Yehuda Sarna, praised the U.A.E. for its open embrace of the first new Jewish community on the Arabian Peninsula in almost two centuries.

“For the Jewish community living in the Emirates, this is not just another Rosh Hashanah,” said Sarna. “We have finally stepped out of the shadows, and are proudly entering the Jewish New Year as a beacon of light –– and of hope –– for a future of interfaith coexistence in the Middle East. We pray that the year ahead builds upon the immense progress that has been achieved this week, and that we continue on a path to enduring peace.”

NFL Star Benjamin Watson, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Say We be Silent About Christian Persecution, Genocide in Nigeria

We must act now to move toward a peaceful, unified Nigeria and prevent another African genocide. We need a special envoy, and the terrorists committing these crimes need to be held accountable.”

— Stephen Enada, co-founder of ICON

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — At an awareness event hosted by the International Committee on Nigeria (ICON) yesterday, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and NFL star Benjamin Watson said we cannot continue to be silent about the Christian persecution and genocide taking place in Nigeria. Gabbard and Watson joined fellow speakers former Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA); Jonathan Stonestreet, president of the Colson Center; and Piero Tozzi of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission in urging President Trump to send a special envoy to Nigeria and the Lake Chad region. A special envoy would hold the Nigerian government accountable in addressing the humanitarian crisis that has claimed more than 90,000 lives since 2000.

Watson, who co-founded a nonprofit dedicated to impacting lives of those in need with his wife in 2008, has spoken out against Nigeria’s silent slaughter before, informing his vast social media following of the tragedies taking place and urging people to get involved.

“Islamic extremists are continuing to slaughter and enslave christians and other minorities around the world,” said Rep. Gabbard.

“Scripture talks a lot about the persecuted. It’s an analysis of our own body being in pain,” said Watson. “I played football for a long time and felt plenty of pain. When part of my body hurt the rest of my body hurt. I rehabbed that body part and I protected that body part. It’s the same with the body of Christ. We have people in pain right now and we must protect them. As Christians, we are one and the same.”

The awareness event follows recent allegations that a serving northern Nigerian governor is commanding Boko Haram—allegations the Northern Governor’s Forum has said are “too weighty to be ignored” and must be probed.

“If there’s any chance the government is involved in the systematic killing of innocent Nigerian people, it’s more important than ever that the U.S. government act to resolve this crisis,” said Stephen Enada, co-founder of ICON. “A special envoy, with the full backing of our federal government, would have the power to hold perpetrators accountable.”

“Instead of doing the right thing and protecting the Nigerian people, President Buhari has turned a blind eye to the violence—or worse, if these allegations are true,” said Kyle Abts, co-founder of ICON. “Meanwhile, the country has been transformed into an epicenter of terrorism and a ticking time bomb. After years of inaction, a catastrophic emergency is unfolding in Nigeria, but the worst is not inevitable. If we act quickly, we can still stop this crisis.”

Despite the Nigerian government’s claims to be “on top of the situation,” according to ICON’s incidence tracker nearly 3,000 people, including women and children, have been brutally killed already this year, and these terrorists show no signs of letting up.

“We must act now to move toward a peaceful, unified Nigeria and prevent another African genocide,” Enada continued. “We need a special envoy, and the terrorists committing these crimes need to be held accountable.”

AMCD Praises Middle East Peace Accord

Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al Zayani, President Benjamin Netanyahu, President Donald J. Trump, and UAE’s Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, September 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The American Mideast Coalition for Democracy applauds the historic peace agreement between Israel and the UAE and Bahrain signed September 15 at the White House. President Trump has courageously broken free from the paralysis that has gripped US policy in the Middle East for the last 25 years or more.

As more moderate Middle Eastern states join the Abraham Accords, the strategic re-alignment of Arab states, Israel and the United States will undoubtedly bring peace and stability to the entire region and this will be a blessing to the whole world.

“A new generation, which rejects the tired clichés of the past, is rising,” said AMCD co-Chair Tom Harb. “They want a future grounded in reality, with the promise of a full and prosperous life. They want an end to the terror and death offered by Hamas and Hezbollah. The young generation is embracing life.”

“We hope the day comes soon when the people of Lebanon and Iran will also enjoy the fruits of peace and prosperity,” added AMCD co-Chair John Hajjar. “Once the despicable mullahs and their proxies across the region are defeated, that day will surely come.”

“The mullahs of Iran, who recently thought of themselves as the vanguard of the struggle to dominate the world, now find themselves isolated and increasingly impoverished,” continued AMCD vice-Chair, Hossein Khorram. “The region is no longer buying what they’re selling and that is great news for world peace.”

AMCD extends hearty congratulations to President Donald J. Trump, Secretary Mike Pompeo, Mr. Jared Kushner, President Benjamin Netanyahu, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, Emir Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al Zayani, Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed and all those who worked tirelessly for this historic agreement over the past four years. We especially extend our congratulations to our advisor, Dr. Walid Phares, whose counsel as foreign policy advisor for the Trump campaign in 2016 and constant support for the framework in meetings with Arab leaders and on Arab media helped to lay the groundwork for this monumental agreement.

Former Graduate Returns to Edgewood Children’s Ranch to Serve as Executive Director

Brice Jordan Headshot

I’m honored to be able to give back to the organization that inspired me to change the direction of my life for the better.”

— Bruce Jordan

ORLANDO, FL, USA, September 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Edgewood Children’s Ranch board of directors has announced the selection of Central Florida business owner Bruce Jordan as its new executive director.

“We’re very pleased that Bruce is willing and able to commit his experience as a business owner to his new role,” says Edgewood Children’s Ranch Chairman of the Board Thomas Tukdarian. “He has a long history with the Ranch and truly has a passion for our mission.”

“This is a bittersweet moment for me,” says Jordan. “But I’m looking forward to applying all the knowledge and experience that Kymera has afforded me over the years to help bring growth and additional funding to such a deserving program — and such deserving children and families.”

Before accepting his new position, Jordan was a managing partner at Kymera, a successful marketing and digital advertising agency, and had owned Inspiration Media, a thriving digital media company. Through his transition, Jordan will serve as a consultant advisor at Kymera.

As a child, Jordan himself was an at-risk youth who benefitted from the Edgewood Children’s Ranch program, which to this day continues to focus on the development of personal accountability, dependability, discipline and the Christian faith. Jordan’s cottage parent was Stuart Eldridge, a 37-year employee of Edgewood Children’s Ranch and its most recent executive director, who passed away unexpectedly earlier this year.

“I had a special bond with the Ranch and with Stuart,” Jordan says. "He and I often talked about how I might step into his shoes one day. Regretfully, that day came far too soon; however, I’m honored to be able to give back to the organization that inspired me to change the direction of my life for the better.”

About Edgewood Children’s Ranch

Since 1966, the Edgewood Children’s Ranch has equipped and empowered at-risk children and their families with the education and structure needed to live a purposeful and transformed life. The residential program for behaviorally challenged children in Central Florida emphasizes the development of responsibility, accountability, self-control and faith. Children live in family-style, cottage homes and attend a private Christian school, Edgewood Ranch Academy, also located on the Ranch’s 110 lakefront acres.
