Your Small School’s Development Shop

Jason Lewis discusses how community alignment, hiring decisions, shared leadership and measuring performance can dramatically increase the effectiveness of your school’s small development shop.

Schools with fewer than 500 students often have a dif cult time identifying and cultivating donors who can make transformative gifts. Conventional approaches to high capacity fundraising often assume large development budgets and layers of fundraising activities
that smaller schools simply can’t sustain. In this workshop, participants will discover how community alignment, hiring decisions, shared leadership and measuring performance can dramatically increase the effectiveness of your school’s small development shop. Participants will leave provoked yet encouraged with a fresh perspective of how to design and implement their development office.
