The role of development and fundraising is now integral to the future of Independent Schools. Independent schools are raising £190m per year through fundraising and this is set to continue to grow. In order to limit fee inflation and provide fee assistance, no Head can afford to not have development at the forefront of their school’s agenda.
The Prime Minister, Theresa May, warned that independent schools would have to engage more with local communities to keep their charitable status tax privileges. To maintain their charitable status, independent schools must provide bursaries and scholarships for gifted lower income pupils.
As such, this Innovative Fundraising and Development for Independent Schools course will equip delegates with the tools to build an effective fundraising and development strategy. The course will address the most pressing issues in development today, such as data protection and shifting from short-term transactional fundraising to deep relationship fundraising.
Through unique case studies and interactive workshops attendees will master the best methods for donor engagement, building an effective development team and running a successful fundraising campaign.
