Doing More with Less: Prospect Development in Small Shops

  • Registration Closed

While large organizations often benefit from numerous staff members focused on prospect development, many other organizations have few, if any, staff members dedicated to this critical function. During this panel, we will hear from some of those organizations and learn how they prioritize their time, communicate with leadership, and make the most of available resources. 

Christopher Backes

Prospect Researcher

CentraCare Foundation

I graduated from St. John’s University in Minnesota in 2021 with a degree in Economics. While at St. John’s my passion for philanthropy really developed when I was connected with St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital through the football team. As a leader of the football team, I had the privilege to visit St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis for a leadership seminar. I accepted the Prospect Research position at the CentraCare Health Foundation at the end of 2022. My background in Economics along with my passion for philanthropy combine to make Prospect Development a great career for me.
