International Fundraising - Is Your Institution Ready?   
by Bob Markley

Bob Markley, Senior Consulting Associate, has joined Brakeley Briscoe after a career at Duke University managing their international fundraising programs in Asia. 
Some universities are seeing 7 and  8 percent of yearly giving coming from international sources.  Independent schools are seeing gifts of $1 million and more from international families.  Educational institutions' strategic plans increasingly emphasize globalization of curriculum, student experience, and enrollments.  Advancement programs need globalization strategies too.

Current Issues in Independent Schools  
We interviewed about a dozen independent school development executives to get a feel for their concerns relative to development. The individuals we talked to represented boarding and day schools; schools located in the East, West, North, and South; sectarian schools and schools with religious affiliations; and elementary schools, high schools, and schools with grades K through 12.

Although we heard a wide range of issues, certain issues stood out.

BBI Education Client Testimonial

"W were pleased to partner with the nation's oldest fundraising company - Brakeley Briscoe - in launching what would become our institution's largest campaign in our 50 year history.  The BB team did a planning study which helped us determine how much we could raise in a campaign and how we should structure our volunteers and staff. Then they counseled us in our campaign, helping us blow past our $10 million goal.  We were extremely pleased with our collaboration and thank them for their investment in Tallahassee Community College.
