Campbell & Company recently sponsored the annual conference for Apra, the professional organization “committed to serving, representing and advancing the professionals and practices that enable the philanthropic success of institutions that rely on fundraising to achieve their missions” (think prospect research and prospect development/management). Since it ended, we’ve reflected on what we had heard from prospect research and development professionals at our booth and in sessions, and how we can further support our clients’ work in this area. Here are a few takeaways:
It was invigorating and inspiring to hear from leaders of organizations in the higher education, healthcare, and arts & culture sectors about what their organizations have been able to accomplish in these areas. As with all good conferences, we left with new ideas about how we can continue to evolve our own practices in partnership with our clients.
