Prospect Development from a Female Perspective
This is a story about a female Prospect Researcher tasked with identifying and researching women prospects and donors at a community non-profit. There are trials and tribulations as she discovers that the publicly available resources information professionals employ in their day to day work lack robust details about prime donors, namely mature women.
What About Women? also includes short stories about women prospects and donors woven among quick tips, new techniques and resources that will open your search possibilities to this powerful segment of philanthropists.
Each sale will contribute USD$1 to the Canadian Women’s Foundation.
