We created this Researchers in Fundraising: Best Practice Guide and Handbook for Prospect Research as a valuable new resource created by prospect researchers for prospect researchers. It provides a comprehensive, up to date, and relevant guide to the diverse range of skills and knowledge required for successful, professional, and ethical prospect research in the UK, and internationally and is offered in an accessible, user-friendly format, at an affordable price. This project is a unique collaboration by an international team of volunteers to create content that informs, educates, and guides their peers.
The Handbook supports prospect researchers by exploring three key domains:
• Ethics: Enhancing understanding of the role of ethics in prospect research and the practical implications of ethical good practice.
• Data Skills and Technical Skills: Increasing knowledge of the data skills and technical skills essential to the role of prospect researcher and ability to implement them.
• Career: Developing greater awareness of career pathways in prospect research and the professional standards associated with good practice as individuals and as team members.
Who the Handbook is for: the Handbook has been written for prospect researchers at all career stages and in all types of nonprofit and higher education organisations.
