CDP Announces Strategic Partnership with ROI Solutions

Boston, MA (June 1, 2022) – CDP President Michal Heiplik announced today the formation of a strategic partnership with Medford, MA-based ROI Solutions and the selection of their CRM platform, Revolution CRM. The CRM will join a broad suite of tools in CDP’s technical ecosystem used to power CDP’s fundraising efforts, services and data analytics. Revolution CRM will be implemented across CDP’s 40+ public media partner stations, providing the backbone of future fundraising success. Revolution Online will replace NGO Connect, which is being retired by Salesforce.

“After an extensive needs assessment and selection process that included significant feedback from public media stations and rigorous due diligence, we’re excited to make today’s announcement and invest in the future capacity of our public media community,” said Heiplik.

According to Heiplik, “Because both CDP and ROI Solutions are mission driven, ROI Solutions’ commitment to developing technology solutions for nonprofits aligns perfectly with CDP’s mission to help sustain a thriving public media system and is in keeping with our long history of utilizing best-of-breed technology.”

Revolution Online is well established within public media, having been implemented at stations including WETA, WHYY, KQED, WEDU, Maine Public, Wisconsin Public, Vermont Public and WAMU, as well as in other non-profit sectors. “Our partnership will significantly increase our collective ability to serve nonprofits and make this world-class technology available to public media stations of all sizes, supporting the positive impact they have in communities large and small,” said Heiplik.

Both organizations enter this joint venture recognizing the opportunity to work collaboratively to leverage their expertise to better meet the current and future needs of public media and expand the solutions available to them. “At ROI Solutions, our goal is to help our clients achieve their missions through the better use of technology. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work alongside CDP in serving their public media clients and help the growth of their programs,” said CEO & Founder of ROI Solutions, Gina VanderLoop.

When complete, this collaboration will result in the largest number of public media donors being managed on a single CRM platform and create significant opportunities for increased innovation, efficiency and effectiveness. It will also provide the technological foundation to ensure fundraising success in a rapidly shifting landscape, enabling the accelerated adoption of new fundraising practices, leveraging of new platforms and the ability to develop more dynamic donor relationships.
