Prospect research, also known as development research or fundraising research, is a process in fundraising wherein a researcheridentifies and provides relevant information about potential donors to an organization… Organizations generally employ prospect researchers to find and qualify potential "major" donors who have the resources to make a large gift to the organization.
A prospect researcher will assess an individual's, company's … or foundation's capacity and propensity to donate. Prospect researchers use a variety of resources, including public records, business and financial publications, and Internet databases.”
