With competition for donor dollars rising, prospect research is more relevant than ever.  

Good, targeted research is key to a successful fundraising campaign.  Understanding the interests and motivations of your donors, and identifying the relationships between your donors and your organization, can be crucial in planning cultivation and solicitation strategies.  

The ability of prospect research to pinpoint a prospect's capacity and inclination will allow you to use your time most efficiently and effectively by focusing on those donors who are willing and able to contribute to your organization.
