What We Do

Our team of experienced researchers offer a variety of different levels of research and profiling services. Our research reports are generated by people, not machines, ensuring you get intelligent, pertinent, fresh information for each of your leading prospects. The Factary team specialise in analysing the huge range of information that is available today and giving you an intelligent summary of a prospect’s potential. Our profiles draw on a wide range of paid for sources as well as Factary’s extensive library of information built up over the last 20 years.

Factary can help you right the way through the fundraising process, from prospect to strategic donor. We can help you:

    Strengthen your pool of prospects

  • We carry out research to identify new prospects for you – for example, people connected to your existing board or lead volunteers.
  • Evaluate prospects

  • Factary can help you evaluate your prospects by carrying out research on their wealth or past philanthropy.
  • Understand prospects

  • Factary’s individually-researched in-depth profiles offer detailed, up-to-the-minute information on your key prospects, along with their backgrounds, contacts, philanthropy, and business interests and investments.
  • Track prospects and donors

  • We can provide monthly or weekly reports on your key prospects’ activities in business, investments, philanthropy and news.
  • Manage the prospect pipeline

  • We can provide support with management systems, database specification, database supplier selection, database design, and expert IT advice to set up and manage an effective prospect pipeline.
  • Training and counsel

  • Factary offers training (or, for your senior management, counsel) on prospect management and prospect research, as well as major donor systems and structures.
