Schools and education fundraising
Because we have been around since schools and other educational establishments started to take fundraising seriously in the 1960s we have seen it all – literally. We know what works and what doesn’t. We know which perpetuated myths are nonsensical. And we know how schools can structure and manage their fundraising to best effect, whilst complying with increasingly stringent regulation.
“Mark Jefferies of Craigmyle has worked with us for more than three years on the feasibility assessment, planning and implementation of our capital campaign. Throughout what has been a thoroughly enjoyable and productive partnership his advice and support, drawn from his long experience of fundraising, has proved invaluable and has often guided our direction away from the numerous obstacles that any major fundraising campaign will inevitably encounter. As importantly, he has been highly sensitive to, and respectful of, the very particular ethos and characteristics of Marymount. He has taken great care to ensure that both the strategic direction and operational implementation of the campaign is an appropriate ‘fit’ with the School’s values and ways of doing things. As a school with very little prior fundraising history, we are particularly pleased that the campaign has brought results beyond our original expectations.”
