Prospect Research in Canada: An Essential Guide for Researchers and Fundraisers

Intended for fundraisers and researchers just starting out with prospect research, this book is an invaluable resource for those needing to establish training and guidelines for their organization or educational programs. It also offers a wealth of information for those from the private sector who realize the unique skill sets required to successfully conduct research in Canada.

In this book, 30 skilled contributors share their front-line experiences in the field of prospect research. Through their words and knowledge they reveal why Canadian researchers are not only specialists in their field, but also passionate about ethics and standards and continually improving a profession that they love.

Edited by Tracey Church and Liz Rejman, this book was made possible due to the generous sponsorship support of Apra Canada (Association of Professional Researchers for Advancement, Canada).
