The best things in life are FREE!

A recent post on PRSPCT-L inquired about free resources and kudos to Jennifer Filla for posting these collections.  I would be remiss if I did not post them here.  This veteran researcher even found some new resources among those listed.  Enjoy!

Of course, if you have some FREE favorites you don't see listed here, please feel free to post them in your comments.

Thanks and happy researching!

Prospect Research article in the Summer 2013 issue of Advancing Philanthropy

The Summer 2013 issue of AFP's "Advancing Philanthropy" is out and features a nice article on Prospect Research by Jennifer Filla.  Fortunately, AFP has made this one of the free articles available via their website.  It focuses on something all of us in the profession have dealt with at one time or another - limited resources.

ARTICLE: Prospect Research - Even With Limited Resources

On a related note, this issue also features a good article on the ethical use of social media in fundraising.  It's not available for free, but if this issue of "Advancing Philanthropy" is available to you, it's on page 49.

Hope everyone is having a good summer!  Hard to believe it's half over already.
