Connect with major donors
who can fund your important mission
DonorScope™ is a prospect research platform that ensures nonprofits identify and are properly introduced to donors who give major gifts.
Don’t prejudge your own internal mailing list of existing contacts. Until you’ve properly researched your file you won’t know which existing friends, patrons or volunteers have the financial ability to support your nonprofit’s mission. Upload your file today (at no cost) to find out the number of wealth overlays that can be appended to each of your prospects or donors. After DonorScope has determined the number of overlays available, you can purchase the appended data to ensure that you’re cultivating the right individuals who already know and appreciate your organization. The DonorScope team will be in touch with you within seven business days of your append request.
Simply upload your prospect list. Don’t worry, it is 100% secure and we never share or sell this information to anyone else.
Next, Experian will match your prospect file to our industry leading database of more than 235 million consumers and 113 million households, and enhance the file by adding demographic and behavioral information.
Finally, you will be notified when the process is complete. You select the append package that best fits your needs, and download your new file instantly. You only pay for fields that get appended to your file.
The append process can take up to 24 hours, but is often completed much sooner. You will be notified by email when we have finished processing your file. At that point you will be instructed to select a data package and proceed through check-out. Your appended data file will then be available for immediate download.

The most important task in identifying community leaders of influence is to create as comprehensive a list as possible of the publically known altruists, philanthropists, political leaders, and volunteers who invest their time and resources in the charitable sector. Visit websites, download annual reports, find donor club/society lists, and review board member rosters. A few of the resources that can be explored to originate a list are:
- Chamber of Commerce Annual Reports - SAMPLE
- Women In Philanthropy Annual Reports - SAMPLE
- Hospital Foundation's Annual Reports - SAMPLE
- Community Foundation's Annual Reports - SAMPLE
- Museum Foundation's Annual Reports - SAMPLE
- United Way's Tocqueville Annual Reports - SAMPLE
- Rotary Club Annual Reports – SAMPLE
- Bankers Association Membership Rosters - SAMPLE
- Board Member Lists of Local Nonprofits
- Donor Lists of Local Nonprofits
- ….and much more
Record the first and last name of each prospect and then cross-reference this information against both your rented lists and your internal file. If an address record isn’t located, use Google, internet White Pages, and other online resources to secure complete contact information. When done properly, addresses can be located for approximately 75% of the initial names identified. A few of the resources that can be explored to secure prospect information are:
