Your Tailored Service Experience

Prospect Research

FOUNDATION RESEARCH
Using the latest on-line tools and our own extensive database, PDA searches millions of records to identify prospective foundation donors whose interests and resources meet your needs. We also conduct research into foundation guidelines and submission deadlines.

GRANT WRITING
Winning proposals are no accident. We know what a successful proposal looks like. Our staff works with you to understand your program, the population served and the potential funder in order to craft compelling wording and budgets that make the strongest case.

TRACKING FOUNDATION SUBMISSIONS
PDA staff are vigilant about tracking the foundation application process—from the letter of intent, to the initial Request for Proposal, through the mid year reports and end of grant reports—ensuring that no detail falls through the cracks.

PROSPECT RESEARCH
Using the latest on-line tools and our own extensive database, PDA combs millions of records to identify prospective donors – corporations, foundations, and individuals – whose interests and resources meet your needs.

WARMING “COLD” PROSPECTS
Networking works! PDA uses proven techniques to identify contacts who can solicit your new prospects successfully.

APPROACHING INDIVIDUAL DONORS
“People give to people,” but they have to be the right people; PDA targets the right solicitors, trains them, and helps them get the meeting.

SOLICITATION
PDA can be with you at the “ask,” helping to guide the conversation and overcome objections. We know what to ask for and how to turn a “no” into a “yes.”
