You’re likely familiar with wealth screening and have even leveraged wealth screening results before.

  • What was your experience?

What about the other 80-90%? Just because these individuals may not be great major gift prospects, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be considered as part of improving your overall fundraising strategy.
