ONLINE | Prospecting: Reviewing Your Own Databases for Hidden Gems

Mon, May 4, 6:30 PM (CDT)

About this event

One of the most requested program topics for 2020 is prospect research. Join us for a focused discussion about how a seasoned nonprofit fundraiser conducts in-depth yet cost effective fundraising research, with an emphasis on your own nonprofit's databases.

  • Carolyn suggests you sign up for a free Candid/GuideStar account. Some of Carolyn's suggestions involve using information shared on the Candid website, so that means you can start researching on your own, right after the presentation!

Carolyn M. Appleton got her start in nonprofit fundraising in Austin in the 1980s. Since then, she has worked across Texas, often in remote locations with little or no staff support. New technologies and the Internet have helped Carolyn achieve her fundraising goals, and then some! In 2011, she launched Carolyn's Nonprofit Blog, which today has more than 100 nations visiting annually.

Carolyn has been an NTEN: Nonprofit Technology Network volunteer for ten years. She received a national NTENy award for her volunteer efforts. Carolyn has spoken during the annual NTC: Nonprofit Technology Conference (and others), she has authored a variety of articles on nonprofit fundraising and communications, and in 2019, she was pleased to help TechSoup develop an online nonprofit disaster preparation and recovery course funded by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy. In 2019, Carolyn also became a Qgiv affiliate. Join us for this hands-on insider program!

This program may be broadcast via NetSquared | Zoom. We will keep you posted. Questions? Ask any member of our volunteer team, at any time.
