2 What is a Propensity Model? Data driven approach to identify the likelihood of an individual to participate in a defined behavior. In this case, likelihood to show IUAA membership joining behavior.
3 Why a Propensity Model is Important? We currently have over 600,000 alumni. We do not have the resources, financial or manpower, to reach all alumni and promote membership. We must utilize a data driven strategy to impact membership in an efficient and affective manner.600,000+ Indiana University Alumni
4 How was the Propensity Model Built? 609,170 unique records were matched and scored ranging from 0-1,000.The higher the score the greater the correlation that alumni will have in joining behavior.IU Alumni DataCurrent Alumni MemberIUAA Membership Propensity ModelExternal DataHow was this accomplished? Working with Blackbaud, we took a combination of our membership data variables and standard external variables to derive a high correlation of results associated with current alumni members. As a result, each alumni record was matched with a score ranging from 0-1,000. The higher the score, the greater the correlation we will have with that alumni in joining behavior.
5 Score DistributionScores of 551+ represent those with greatest likelihood to show joining behavior.Score distribution:901+ Excellentvery goodgoodaverage<250 below average
6 What is IUAA Membership Profile Look Like? The percentage shows how predictive each variable is compared to the others. In this model the Loyalty Trend is the largest weighted variable with the others fairly equally distributed.Memberships best prospects share common characteristics:They give frequently outside of membershipShow their pride with an IU license plateLive in areas with a strong IU presenceAre alumni who have followed in footsteps of another family memberGraduated from Kelley School of Business or have business related degreesLikely to be employed in professional science, management & administrationWere involved in clubs & groupsDonation amounts have increased over time

16 Modeled Terms/Definitions Blackjack Variable: The count of the increased giving minus the decreased giving over a given period of time. This simple value indicates whether : the giving has fallen, remained steady, increased the same as decreased, or has risen each year.Description:Blackjack is based on the previous year and back (ex: 2011 and back) to help identify donors and non-donors (ex: in 2012)For each year giving increases, prospect receives a +1For each year giving decreases, prospect receives a -1For each year giving stays the same, prospect receives a 0Blackjack can be any value between -4 and =+4
