  • Prospect Research = Fundraising Intelligence
  • Discovery andanalysis of meaningful, relevant information about donors.
  • Information discovered ranges from the very specific to the very broad
    • Donor's philanthropic history
    • Donors career steps
    • Larger economic trends likely to affect the donor
    • Discovery may include the tracking of an ongoing story (company takeover, etc.)
  • Researchers package the information clearly and concisely and provide it the fundraising operation's front line, the gift officers.
  • The successful researcher is a trusty, savvy advisor to the fundraising operation's front line.
  • In small nonprofits, the executive officer may also be the researcher and major gift officer.

8. Why Prospect Research Matters

  • Research feeds the fundraising cycle and the fundraising cycle feeds your non-profit money.
    • Help you achieve your mission and provide programs and services to local, national and international communities.

9. The Fundraising Cycle (c) Nat Caldwell 2008

  • Research -- and NOZA -- come into play at three key phases of the cycle.
    • Identification
    • Cultivation
    • Solicitation
