DEI Think Tank

Wednesday, October 26, 2022

12:00 P.M. - 1:00 P.M.


Prospect Research teams around the country continue to find themselves looking to incorporate the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) into their work. Do you have strategies to avoid bias while doing discovery work? How will policies around DEI initiatives within our key prospect industries affect our donor pipeline? Do the fundraiser portfolios at your organization reflect the alumni body from a DEI standpoint? What does the prospect research department of tomorrow look like?

Join us for an informal and interactive discussion as we discuss these topics and more!


Mike Foote is the Executive Director of Research and Prospect Management at Dartmouth College, where he oversees a department responsible for prospect identification and development in support of the college’s current multi-billion dollar campaign. With Dartmouth since 2001, Mike has held several other positions within Advancement, including Interim Director of Recognition and Stewardship, and as Advisor to the Donor Engagement team, where he worked closely with the director of that team in developing goals, objectives, and metrics for the department’s operating plan that align with overall fundraising imperatives. Before entering the nonprofit world, Mike spent six years with the National Basketball Association where he directed the league’s multifaceted research needs. Based in New York, he operated in conjunction with marketing and media sales groups to target prospective clients and provided strategic direction for research studies that measured the value of the NBA domestically and globally. He previously spent several years at Nielsen Media Research, the television ratings company.

Mike holds a BA in Quantitative Analysis from St. John’s University and an MBA from the Lubin School of Business, Pace University. He has been a past speaker on the development research circuit, has served on the curriculum committee for the APRA International Conference, and is a member of both APRA and NEDRA
