Understanding Prospect Records

A DonorScape® prospect record includes information that you enter directly about a potential donor (for example, current contact information), as well as information obtained from external databases and verified by you.

Every prospect record within your DonorScape database is identified using a prospect identification (ID) number, which is a unique record identifier, displayed in search results and in prospect profiles.  The prospect ID number should correspond to the ID number assigned to the individual in your donor management system. When you add a new prospect, you can enter the ID number, or let DonorScape automatically generate a unique identifier for the record. If necessary, you can always edit a prospect ID number later.
