Description:
This introductory session will help to inform fundraisers about the ways in which prospect research can benefit their major gift solicitation plans, while detailing the specific purpose(s) of each piece of information provided in a profile summary. It will also explain to researchers what should happen to their work once it leaves their hands, leading to improved future profiles and better collaboration with their fundraising team. Good prospect research can tell you so much more than just the gift capacity of a donor - it can tell you what inspires them, as well as makes their blood boil. It can help you to prioritise your prospects, to focus upon what really matters to your donors, and to determine the best engagement approach. As a result of this session, you will learn how prospect research for major gift fundraising can lead to better campaign results overall, and be given a list of key profile elements that will help you to better engage your donors. Do you often find that you don't know what happens to all of your hard work once your profiles passes into the hands of the fundraising team? Through this session, you will gain an improved knowledge of how the information you provide can be used and how it can help make a difference in supporting the fundraisers of your organization. The result of this understanding can be significant - better profiles that are more likely to meet the fundraiser's needs, creating more opportunities for collaboration!

Looking into your database with an analytical lens can make a researcher giddy!
Are you using analytics to find leads, new sources of revenue or trends? Take a walk on a journey with me. I was petrified of analytics as a fundraiser and now I will not make one appeal until I know a database from an analytical perspective! Second gift conversion, long term donor value, RFM and much more will be explored. You can turn your database into a diamond mine!
