Unprecedented engagement with parents and alumni, leading to record-breaking fundraising goals are changing the way that we think about education philanthropy. There has long been a roster of schools with robust programs and long philanthropic legacies. That roster used to be a few. Today, we see fundraising as a top priority among most schools, accompanied with increasingly ambitious, successful campaigns and leadership to match. Return on investment is top of mind and a growing trend toward unrestricted major gifts is encouraging schools to re-conceive their traditional fundraising programs and staffing. At Development Guild DDI, our work spans from developing a fundraising agenda with a new Head of School, to creating the plan that will help reach well past your campaign goals, to recruiting the critical new talent needed for the most ambitious goals.
