We can all make assumptions about who will (and who won’t) support our schools – Parents will be offended if we ask – People will think it is inappropriate to ask for support during a global recession.
This webinar will share a case study of how Withington Girls’ School put these assumptions to the test and continued to develop both fundraising and alumnae engagement programmes throughout 2020 – to great benefit to pupils and the wider school community.
Lesley Dowdall, Director of Development at Withington Girls’ School, will share her story of how she has worked collaboratively with her Head and common room to achieve significant and far-reaching benefits to the pupils of Withington Girls’ School in a relatively short space of time.
Lesley brings her unique perspective and wealth of experience fundraising from major donors in the university sector and highlights the clear opportunities girls’ schools have to engage their communities to give both their time and their financial support.
Particularly relevant for those Heads aspiring to grow both philanthropic income and alumnae engagement to widen access and improve provision in their school. This webinar will provide an overview of some of the tried and tested approaches to securing support.
With Jo Beckett, CEO of the Institute of Development Professionals in Education (IDPE) and Lesley Director, Development at Withington Girls’ School
