Relationship Mapping with Prospect Visual and The Raiser's Edge

- originally posted on 1.29.2014 at Joe's Blog

Relationship mapping, at its core, is about making connections between constituents. It is vitally important for fundraisers to know the connections of their best prospects because people inherently trust people they already know or with whom they have common connections. This can be a powerful component of your ability to build long-term relationships with supporters.

In the past, revealing relationships has been difficult and time consuming. However, getting access to “big data” and new technology advancements have changed this. In many cases, it is no longer necessary to perform in-depth research on individuals to reveal relationships as part of the prospect research process. The information that a major giving officer, board member, trustee, or other non-profit organization representative would need about a prospect is available at your fingertips.

Highly connected people can be great assets and advocates for your organization even beyond their personal capacity to give. A great place to start is by analyzing key relationships with your board members and/or volunteers. How may they be connected with some of your best donor prospects?

With all of this in mind, you may be asking: HOW do I get started finding out about relationships and connecting the dots among my supporters in The Raiser’s Edge®?
