Welcome to the Association of Professional Researchers for Advancement (APRA), Northwest Chapter.
We are a group of fundraising professionals dedicated to meeting the data and information needs of the nonprofit community. Advancement researchers collect, evaluate, analyze, organize, package and disseminate publicly available information in a way that maximizes its usefulness and enables accurate and educated decision-making.
More information about the field of Advancement Research can be found at our parent organization, APRA International.
