Corporate and Foundation Research
Jennifer C. Cooper
Senior Associate

The availability of information about corporations and foundations has exploded in recent years. Advancement researchers must learn how to navigate through this abundance of data to focus on what is relevant to solicitation strategy. Find out how corporations and foundations approach and manage giving. Learn how to access the key print and online resources and to interpret the data contained within them. Discover specialized tools for private company research. Once you have gathered the relevant information, learn to present it in a clear and concise manner.
