Prospect Development

Prospect Development’s mission is to enhance NC State’s philanthropic endeavors by partnering with fundraisers to deliver timely information, moves management and data and prospect analysis. In doing so, we maximize the opportunity for private funding that benefits students, faculty, and the university’s strategic priorities.

We function as two teams with one unified goal. The Prospect Research side develops estimated capacity ratings, provides valuable asset and giving information at the right time of the donor cycle, and engages in suspect identification activities through proactive research. The Prospect Management side completes the team by performing moves management system updates, providing complex analysis, and reviewing portfolios to ensure standards and activity goals are being met.
