This is a one day workshop offers a cost-effective overview of prospect profile building skills for new fundraising researchers, those looking to break into the field, and NGO professionals who wear multiple hats. The program will include a hands-on workshop guided by seasoned researchers to build a profile in real time. Registrants will be walked through traditional formats and some theory behind the construction of a profile through collaboration and discussion. Registrants will be able to use this as a jumping off point for building their fundamental skills as a researcher. Along with prospect profile building, we will hold a panel discussion on ethics as prospect development professionals. The panel will consist of experienced researchers and will touch on the various challenges and complexities that come along with the diversity of organizations represented in the APRA-IL membership.

Session Leaders:

Lindsey Humphrey and Karla Davis, Northwestern University

Heather Ruggio, Northwestern University
