Nonprofits depend on philanthropic support, but sometimes understanding who to ask and for how much — can be a great challenge. While donor prospect research can be difficult to set aside time for, the value of research in a fundraising program can be tremendous.
One tool for prospect research is donor screening databases. According to TechSoup, “Research involves a certain amount of strategy and thoughtfulness, which no software can provide for you,” while “tools on the market can facilitate your efforts to identify and research funders and make tracking your results more manageable.” DonorSearch is one of those screening tools.
To help you best manage your organization’s time and data, we are offering all CNE members a prorated subscription to DonorSearch through the end of the year. DonorSearch offers data from 25 databases, and provides insight into which organizations a donor supports, highlights analytics to target ask amounts, and supports a major donor strategy.
The prorated cost to partake in our collaborative subscription contract with DonorSearch through the end of the year is $100 — 1/10 of the typical annual subscription cost. This subscription is in addition to your annual membership payment, and is available on-site at CNE during office hours. Contact Kadi Davis, Membership Manager, to learn more.
