Prospect Assignment Request

In any university development program — especially in a comprehensive, university-wide constituent orientation — the most essential management function that drives the development and campaign process is the management of prospects.

It is the goal of the university’s prospect assignment procedure that decisions are made in a collaborative and collegial environment. The donor’s philanthropic desires should be the principal guide and always be primary in decision making. Active fundraising will also reflect awareness and promotion of the university’s institutional and academic priorities.

The established procedure for requesting prospect assignments is as follows:

  1. Requesting assignment as prospect manager or assistant
    prospect manager may be done at any time.
  2. Obtain prior approval from your supervisor-of-record when
    making the request for prospect manager or assistant
    prospect manager. Also obtain approval from the current
    prospect manager if requesting assignment for assistant
    prospect manager. These approvals must accompany the
  3. Email with the assignment request. 
  4. Include the name and ID of the entity along with the name of
    the requestor wanting assignment and the type of
    assignment desired (Prospect Manager or Assistant
    Prospect Manager)
  5. The Associate Director of Prospect Management will review
    and log the request then forward to the Senior Vice
    President for University Relations and Development for final
  6. Requests are accepted daily, sent for approval on
    Thursdays, and finalized usually on Fridays.
