Fundraising in the International School - BTC 103
We in international schools live in a world of shrinking resources, rising tuition, sophisticated community members, and plenty of competition. How do we build and sustain a robust fund-raising program in these challenging conditions?
Participants in this course will:
Learn how to identify donors/organizations that want to support international education in your community
Learn patterns of donor behavior, motivations, and key influencers
Explore new information on how donors think and decide what to support
Explore and practice how the fundraiser modifies strategies in economic environments of both in tremendous growth or decline
Learn how to open a ‘development’ (fund-raising) program, including how to conduct feasibility studies
Examine how the development program is more than just raising fund – that is is a vital expression of the ‘spirit’ of the school
Learn how to write a Strategic Development Plan with goals and metrics
Additional Benefit: Dr. Stroup will conduct specific research to identify donors/organizations that want to support international education in your community, including contact information and other data. This offer applies to the first several of participants who sign-up for this training by 1 February 2012.
