School leaders face a multitude of challenges to ensure their dollars cover their institutions’ academic goals and maintain their standards. They must ask themselves if teachers can fully equip their classrooms without spending their own money, whether there’s support for enrichment programs, or if their facilities remain competitive – and that’s only a small sample of the considerations they face.
This interactive program draws on the expertise of Kellogg faculty and seasoned school fundraisers to teach participants new skills for fundraising and strategies for energizing their constituents. Designed for superintendents, principals, lead teachers, and other education leaders, this program will also help you create a development mindset so you can learn to think like the donor, design development plans, learn how to solicit gifts for your school, and partner with board members, friends and parents to reach your collective fundraising goals.
