Featuring Karen Prater, Associate Director for Development Analytics at the University of Oregon and Delanie Delimont, CFRE, Donor Relations Officer, Portland Children's Museum 

Karen Prater is the associate director for development analytics at the University of Oregon (UO). She joined the UO Prospect Management and Analytics team as a prospect analyst in 2008. Her prior work experience includes research, analysis and supervision in multiple industries. Karen has a master’s degree in library and information science, a master’s degree in public administration and a graduate certificate in nonprofit management. The UO practices data driven fundraising by leveraging the power of data analysis to identify new prospects, optimize portfolios and inform strategy. Types of analysis used on a regular basis include electronic wealth screenings, scoring, predictive modeling, portfolio analysis and gift tables.


Delanie has a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Portland State University with a focus on non-profit management.  She has spent her career in non-profit management, first from the program management side, then on the administrative side as executive director for a small non-profit. During her time as an executive director, Delanie was responsible for the fund raising of the organization. After seven years as the executive director, Delanie found she enjoyed the fund raising aspect of her career the best, so she transitioned full time into fundraising and completed her CFRE a couple of years ago. She now serves as the Donor Relations Officer at Portland Children’s Museum. Delanie is responsible for managing all the donor stewardship of individual donors including cultivation events for the major gift program, communication and meeting with donors, as well as the prospect research and analysis of wealth screening data to inform donor prospecting. Delanie is an avid knitter specializing in knitting Norwegian sweaters. Last year she completed her Masters Level I in hand knitting and has started on her Masters Level II. This year she is serving as President of the Tigard Knitting Guild and welcomes knitting questions.
