Hi folks,



Cecilia Hogan very nicely pointed out the error in the title, which is
my fault! It is simply "The Frugal Researcher: How to Do Successful
Research on Little to No Budget." I don't want to leave anyone wondering
just what exactly the frugal researcher may be doing!



Thanks!

Jen

How The Frugal Researcher: How to Do Successful Research on Little to No
Budget (Replay)

Presented by Heather Reisz

Shocking yet true, you can conduct prospect research without a
subscription to LexisNexis. Many research shops do not have large
budgets and can not afford expensive tools. Some development departments
don't even have a research shop and are struggling to do research as
part of many other projects so they have no research budget at all.

If you fit either of these categories, or even if you have a reasonable
research budget but want to train your fundraisers to do some quick free
research on their own, this is the program for you. The speaker will
focus mainly on free Internet resources and ways to access fee-based
resources for free at public sources such as libraries. Learn how to
access insider stock holdings, real estate assessments, salaries,
biographical information, company information, philanthropic giving and
foundation information.

The speaker is a seasoned researcher who started her research career at
an organization with $0 in their research budget. She has trained many
nonprofit professionals to conduct prospect research with little to no
money spent on resources.
