STEP 3: GROW MORE WITH PROSPECT RESEARCH!
Why should the big nonprofits get all the funding?
The fastest way to increase funding is by getting larger gifts, grants, and sponsorships. One of the best ways to do that is to know your prospects and current donors giving preferences and giving capacity. Here's how to make sure your smaller nonprofit can get funding like the big shops - with a DonorSearch sub-account from Bristol Strategy Group, our partner for donor research.
Ever since we designed the SMART Way™ Prospect Scorecard, we realized excellent donor profiling should be part of every nonprofit's toolkit. So, we partnered with DonorSearch to bring the tools large nonprofits use to increase their fundraising effectiveness, to small nonprofits at an affordable price. Just $1,500 for a one year subscription. That's less than half the regular price.
If you're ready to get started now, you can skip the rest and buy now!
Their approach starts with philanthropy, so you can find out fast which prospective funders, from individuals to foundations, are really worth your time and attention.
Donor Research is for you when:
- There's a great prospect but you're not sure how much to ask for.
- You want to enrich your SMART Way Scorecard with a DonorSearch rating
- You think the prospect matches your Scorecard's Value Statements, but don't know their giving capacity or track record.
- Your donor base is just too small.
- You don't have a connection with the prospect, but maybe someone else you know does.
They have a huge database - pretty much the largest - of individual giving history PLUS donor capacity. Their approach mirrors our mantra - deciding if the prospect is good enough for your team to invest scarce, precious time. Fundraising the SMART Way™ + DonorSearch = the perfect fit for meeting and exceeding your fundraising goals.
