What is the potential of your school community to support a fundraising campaign and to raise your target amount?
How does the school community feel about the Development Plan and priorities?
Who are the individuals most likely to inspire others to give and to ensure fundraising success?
The answers to these and to other important questions, will unfold by gaining a greater understanding of your school community with a fundraising feasibility study. It is strongly recommended that schools undertake a feasibility study to provide answers to the key break-through questions needed for an informed fundraising strategy and then to launch a fundraising campaign with confidence.
With Ian’s personal approach, his complete understanding of the school development process and experience with fundraising feasibility studies, he provides the guidance and assistance to plan and write a comprehensive Case for Support.
Ian then tests this case by sharing it’s aims with key individuals from within the school community. To be able to provide the best possible advice and outcome, Ian will lead the fundraising feasibility study personally, so that he is directly informed and can provide the most accurate recommendations.
This process often leads to his on-going guidance on fundraising strategy and campaign management. Ian will identify the strengths and weaknesses of a community that may affect a campaign, identify the individuals who are most suited to lead a campaign and determine the anticipated fundraising target.
Your fundraising feasibility study will be presented in a comprehensive, clear and informative document which can be shared with Governors and school leaders as a strategic planning tool.
Costs are tailored to each school’s specific requirements.
For full details about the feasibility study process and the potential outcomes, please contact Ian McLean directly.
“Everyone involved in the study was most impressed with the way Ian handled the interviews. He pushed on through a very heavy schedule of meetings and produced a report of invaluableinsights and recommendations.” Jenny Hipwell, Development Director, Twyford School, Hampshire
“It was during our first event together where it became apparent that I was dealing with a world class, true professional in his field. What’s impressive is that Ian adds extra value by considering every aspect from the school’s admissions process and student welfare to a potential donor’s first encounter, through the development and potential fundraising phase. Through his mentoring, I was fortunate to learn the important steps in relationship building and fundraising, especially in the international environment”.
