Prospecting Major Donors

Search Your Donors In Real Time


Submit lists of prospects to receive detailed and accurate wealth and philanthropic profiles. This dual-screening approach allows you to predict both the capacities and inclinations to give of your current donors. Send us lists, as big or small as you’d like, and choose the schedule that works for you. Send us over your donors in bunches of a minimum of 100
The screening service comes with a free manual review of your top prospects. In-house prospect research specialists manually verify information, which raises the accuracy to an industry-best 90%. This saves your development team valuable time during the qualification phase, so they can more quickly move into the cultivation stage with your top prospects. The screening results are returned to you via NPO AUTHORITY portal.


Finding major gift donors and planned giving donors are two different tasks. Surveys reveal that 40% of planned giving donations come from donors who have not given large gifts in the past and are unknown to the organization’s development officers. Planned Giving Prospect Identification (PGID) uses sophisticated modeling and analytics to identify donors who are most likely to support your organization with a substantial legacy gift. When back-testing a pool of 14,000 known donors, PGID identified 84% of the known planned donors. The NPO AUTHORITY/ DonorSearch’s PGID rating indicates the likelihood to give a bequest on a scale from most to least likely.
