The Prospect Development Company


Maximise your philanthropic fundraising potential

The Prospect Development Company is here to offer you support for all your prospect development needs - from research for meetings with prospective donors to identifying prospects to support a new campaign or initiative​​. ​​As each piece of work we do is unique, we offer bespoke proposals for all our work.

​Prospect Research
The Prospect Development Company can work with you to provide information on new or prospective donors - offering a personal approach so it feels like having your own researcher. Whether you require ad-hoc profiles on an ongoing basis (you might like our Deposited Budget Scheme), or need information on a larger number of prospects, we are here to help.

We offer a range of research services - from prospect qualification to full profiles, from short biographies for events to briefings for senior leadership. ​We can use your research templates in order to save you time.

Prospect Identification
We can support you by locating new donors who may be inclined to support your organisation's cause. Whether this be individuals, charitable trusts or corporate support, we'll work to find prospects for your next campaign, project or simply for general fundraising activity.

Prospect Management
We can partner with you on a consultancy basis to understand your prospect management needs, taking the time to listen to your key stakeholders, and make a bespoke recommendation that is right for you, your team and your organisation.

Due Diligence
We can provide due diligence profiles on companies, individuals and charitable foundations in order to support your fundraising activity, where a prospect’s activities may be misaligned with your charitable objectives. This information will help you make informed decisions as to whether accepting a potential donation may present a higher risk to your reputation, your brand, your ability to deliver your programmes, or potentially risk your staff on the ground internationally.

Strategy and Policy Development

We can work with you to develop strategies and policies to support major gift fundraising activity. From creating a bespoke Prospect Development strategy to help build your pipeline of new business, through to developing donation / gift acceptance policies, we can partner with you to share our experiences and expertise to ensure you’re maximising your fundraising potential.

Establishing or Expanding a Major Giving Programme?
If you’re thinking of starting or expanding an existing major giving programme, The Prospect Development Company can support you every step of the way, working with you to establish a new strategy, find new prospects, provide training and templates, and develop policies to protect your organisation. We can work together over the course of 3-6 months to provide a combination of our services to support your ambitions in the area of major gifts.
