Prospect Research


Prospect Research is the process of identifying, qualifying, and cultivating prospective donors to determine their capacity and propensity to donate. This is accomplished by investigating donors' philanthropic, financial, and biographical histories in order to gather a comprehensive profile before approaching an individual donor.

Highly specific research that has been tailored to individual prospects will inform and support an organization's fundraising strategies and outreach efforts, optimizing an organization's chances and increasing the support received from prospective donors.
