PRO is one of the most comprehensive and accurate research tools we’ve used. It is easier to query and has enabled us to reduce our research time and respond to requests more rapidly. It has already helped us identify new major gift prospects and new leadership prospects for our annual fund effort.”

I’ve used PRO in 3 small shops and it has helped us unearth many major gift prospects, saving us the cost of professional research fees. The simple interface, variety of research tools, design, and handy features make this a time and money saver. And best of all – the data is always fresh and accountable. I recommend PRO to all my colleagues!”

Suzanne Duncan, MA CFRE. / Senior Manager, Major Gifts, WoodGreen Community Services

I used PRO for the first time and, after a bit of research, submitted a grant application to a foundation for funding consideration. We had never applied to this particular foundation before and were excited to receive notification that we had been awarded $10,000 for a capital project. I probably would not have applied to this particular foundation had I not had the benefit of PRO’s detailed funder profiles. Thanks so much!”
