Due Diligence

Thursday, March 2, 2023





The need for due diligence research in fundraising was widely recognized in late 2019, but there were few models for how this new research function would work. Join us to learn how Stanford University's Medical Center Development office worked to create methods, policies and procedures to limit Stanford’s reputational risk and build a robust, flexible due diligence program.


Sandra Larkin has more than 20 years of experience in prospect research. In 2018, she joined the prospect research team at Stanford University Medicine, supporting Stanford Medical School and Stanford Hospital as a remote employee based in Massachusetts. In March 2020, she started working as team lead for the newly created due diligence research program. Prior to Stanford, she was an independent prospect research consultant under the name Larkin Research Associates for nearly 20 years. Sandra was active in NEDRA’s early years, serving on the NEDRA board of directors for six years, and as editor of NEDRA News for eight years. She received the Ann Castle Award in 2005.

Mavis Ntam serves as an Assistant Director, Prospect Research with Stanford University’s Medical Center Development team. Prior to joining Stanford, she served at George Washington University, where she was a Senior Prospect Analyst, and partnered with the medical school, basic sciences, and engineering.  Mavis began her development research career at Dartmouth College, where she also earned her bachelor’s degree.
