Prospect Research

The Prospect Research team provides in-depth research on individuals, corporations, or foundations, and in addition, identifies potential prospects for the development effort.  Researchers also attempt to ascertain a potential donors' giving capacity, propensity, and interests.  Prospects are rated based on these attributes.

  • Bullet paragraphs
  • Corporate and foundation research
  • Wealth reports
  • Relationship maps
  • Ellucian Advance updates

Once the research product has been completed, a pdf version is sent to the requester. The prospect’s record is updated accordingly.  The profile is also available in the “Documents” section under the prospect’s biographical tab in Ellucian Advance.
