Apra Partner Webinar: Save Time and Drive Results with a Foundation of Quality Data
While there are many ways to research net worth and find potential donors, there is an opportunity cost if the data is inaccurate, outdated, or limited to the ultra-wealthy. The University of Michigan's development team tested and measured multiple data vendors to evaluate quality with the goal of improving prospect research as well as DEI initiatives. In this webinar, you will hear what they learned and take away new methods for ensuring data quality and leveraging people insights for fundraising and other critical initiatives within your organization.
