The Birthplace of Apra
Grab your lunch and join us for Apra-MN's January 2023 Lunch & Learn!
This month, we will be joined by Kari Stokosa, Associate Vice President, Research & Prospect Management at the Wisconsin Foundation & Alumni Association.
It takes a wide variety of strengths and skillsets to effectively perform prospect development work and not everyone excels in a one-size-fits-all role. At Wisconsin Foundation & Alumni Association, the Research & Prospect Management team works collaboratively as three well-defined teams which utilize inherent strengths while meeting the full spectrum of the Advancement cycle. This session will discuss how the Prospect Identification, Prospect Research and Prospect Management teams work together to support fundraising at WFAA.
