Prospect Development: Prospect Research and Management

Using the internet and other technologies, prospect researchers collect, evaluate, analyze, organize, package and disseminate publicly available information. Prospect researchers provide the analysis necessary to convert raw data and information into functional fundraising intelligence – to increase the potential of a gift. Advancement Services’ prospect researchers operate under the guidelines imposed by APRA (Association of Prospect Researchers for Advancement), CARA (California Advancement Researchers Association), and the AFP (Association of Fundraising Professionals).
