WORKSHOP: Essential Fundraising Skills for Schools

Linda McNay, PhD.

There are 3 keys to successful fundraising in schools: a compelling case for support, committed leadership, and an annual plan/strategy.
Join us at Alexander Haas, fundraising counsel, on October 2, to learn more about how to elevate your school’s fundraising practices.
We will cover everything from Fundraising 101 for beginners to what to expect from the board, to how to ask for a major gift. Come prepared with your questions/pressing issues. Bring samples of your best work to share with your colleagues.

Linda McNay, Ph.D. and partner, will present an informative one-half day workshop just for independent school leaders.
