Plan a Great Prospecting Strategy

Did you know that many of the Andar prospecting tools and functions are based on the work of Kent E. Dove? His famous book, Conducting a Successful Major Gifts and Planned Giving Program: A Comprehensive Guide and Resource is an incredible read for anyone involved in nonprofit organizations.

"Prospects" are potential donors or volunteers. Andar’s prospecting system includes sophisticated techniques to help you develop a successful donor nurturing strategy. With it, you can fine tune your approach by identifying various levels of gifts, internal volunteers, board members, workplace campaigns, and other types of searches.

Learn New Skills

Polish off old skills or learn brand new ones by attending Andar/360 eClasses in January and February. You can participate from the comfort of your desk or ask your colleagues to join along, plus ask questions on the spot if you want the instructor to explain something further.
