Welcome to the APRA-Southwest Website


Note: We have suspended our membership program as we re-evaluate our member benefits and chapter programming. In the meantime, we highly recommend the Greater Houston Chapter of APRA for regional programming and benefits. You may contact Will Elliott for more information.

The Association of Professional Researchers for Advancement-Southwest (also known as APRA-SW) is a regional chapter of an international organization for people invested in prospect research and related fields that support nonprofit fundraising. The mission of this organization is to provide opportunities for education, networking and professional development for nonprofit professionals throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and New Mexico.

Our conference in Dallas was a great success! Fundraising in Tough Economic Times – May 7-8, 2009, had almost 60 attendees from the region – and even Utah. Thanks to all who made this event run so smoothly and benefit so many.

Congratulations to David VanLone – the 2009 Jonathan Lindsey Award recipient.
