Large nonprofit organizations have prospect research departments dedicated to identifying the interests, connections, capacity, and giving patterns of major donors. Development teams can use this information to work smarter and raise more significant gifts.

Smaller nonprofits miss these opportunities because they typically do not have the funding, technology or staff to keep up with the demands of prospect research. moss+ross can fill that gap with a suite of research services. Access to an on-demand research professional is available to suit your organization’s needs and budget for specific projects or ongoing research.

On-Demand Research Office

Our experienced research professionals know how to hone in on relevant information – it is not as easy as just doing an internet search. We can work with you to provide the information you need: giving histories, interests, company and foundation affiliations, and other items of interest available through public resources.
