Development teams can often be seen as a mystery to other departments in your school, and yet their understanding and support is vital to the success of your fundraising.
By taking the time to engage your SLT, school staff and other stakeholders from your community, you can create advocates across the school, each with their own network to share your campaign with and drive to assist in reaching your fundraising goals.
This unique webinar will follow a Q&A format, hosted by independent schools fundraising consultant, Rachel Hadley-Leonard. You will be encouraged to contribute your questions during registration and throughout the session, for Rachel to answer.
