A prospect management system doesn’t track people, it tracks gifts People don’t have statuses like discovery, cultivation, solicitation, etc. Gift expectancies do One person may have several gift expectancies in different statuses All major gift expectancies are tracked through Proposals, whether or not an actual proposal or ask has been made – Raiser’s Edge uses a Proposal to record any major gift expectancy – A Proposal in Raiser’s Edge may represent a confident strategy or an plan for a prospect who has just been identified and needs further discovery – One prospect may have one or many Proposals Blackbaud’s Conference for Nonprofits — Charleston | Cooke & Paquette | Page #9 Advanced Moves Management in The Raiser’s EdgeCreate a proposal when the assignment is made Qualification • Name = the anticipated name of the project to be funded • Solicitor = prospect manager • Purpose = the type of funding anticipated • Amount expected (based on (unrestricted/restricted, current use/endowment) prospect research) • Status = discovery (means unverified potential) • Date expected = today + 2 years • Status date = the date the status is added Blackbaud’s Conference for Nonprofits — Charleston | Cooke & Paquette | Page #10 5
