Mythos, a comprehensive donor communications platform, and Awarded, a scholarship awards management tool, have entered a partnership to deliver new solutions for higher education donor communications teams.  

The collaboration combines Awarded’s innovative scholarship matching capabilities with Mythos’ industry-leading personalized donor communication tools, linking the processes of financial aid and gift reporting.

As part of the partnership, shared customers will benefit from a new integration between the two company platforms, providing a seamless and secured flow of scholarship and awards data. This integration will accelerate the creation of donor fund and impact reports, facilitate faster and easier story collection, and offer expanded datasets to advancement and gift officer teams to inspire their donors and illustrate giving opportunities.

The partnership comes at a time when many higher education institutions have a high dependency on donations to attract and retain students with scholarships, but are also challenged with public pressure from donors concerned with proper fund administration and new legal considerations over bias in the awarding process.

Jon Budington, CEO and Chief Storyteller, Mythos said: “Our clients are always seeking greater efficiencies as demand for personalized gift reporting grows. Awarded/Mythos clients will benefit from a seamless transition of data between our platforms, but our relationship with Awarded will also provide donors with a better understanding of the demand for scholarships. This agreement also allows Mythos users to tell the complete story of scholarship needs—those awarded combined with an understanding of demand for existing funds.”

“We couldn’t be more excited about what this partnership allows us to do for our clients, and for the industry,” said Amaan Badruddin, CEO and Co-Founder of Awarded. “Collectively, we have an opportunity to solve the challenges pervasive in higher education with underspent scholarships, understewarded donors and a lack of visibility and automation ultimately hurts both students and donors, let alone the hard-working administrative teams.”
