Identifying, evaluating, and contacting potential prospects for your nonprofit organization is a time-consuming task. With the help of public information, however, the task can be made easier. One source of such information is the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings. An SEC filing is a financial statement or other formal document submitted to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Public companies, certain insiders, and broker-dealers are required to make regular SEC filings. Investors and financial professionals rely on these filings for information about companies they are evaluating for investment purposes.

Among other important data, these filings provide information on the compensation of key executives, who are often board members and significant stake holders in public companies.

Our speaker has fifteen years of experience as a corporate librarian. He explains how to take the complicated SEC filings and make them a road map to your prospect researching.
