annual fund bootcamp™

July 28 – 31, 2013

Is your Annual Fund subject to the ebbs and flows of the economy? Do you know how you are going to meet your increasing goals each year? Are you building a solid pipeline of major gifts prospects through annual giving?

Join us for this intensive three day hands-on workshop. Roll up your sleeves and look at your program with fresh eyes with insights from peers, experts, and emerging trends from independent schools across the country. Identify tactics that will put your annual giving program on a trajectory for exponential results. You'll go home with an integrated and strategic plan to take your Annual Fund to the next level!

Pre-Camp Webinar
Pre-conference preparation is an essential component of Boot Camp. In order to be ready to jump into this highly intensive and interactive workshop you have some work to do ahead of time. Think of it this way: the Annual Fund is the heart of your development program – this pre-camp prep is your cardio training for Boot Camp! This online pre-camp webinar will outline the data you need to pull and the materials you need to gather in advance.

Optional: Pre-Camp Annual Giving Assessment
Due to heavy workloads, there is often very little time to do the comprehensive data analysis and program evaluation needed to really understand where you've been, where you are, and what the key opportunities are for improvement and success – where you could go and your potential for growth in philanthropic support.

This optional pre-camp assessment takes your quantitative data (pulled per the instructions in the webinar), your collateral materials, and an interview with your staff to obtain valuable qualitative insight and feedback. A comprehensive assessment of your annual giving program and its components is conducted utilizing all of these data points, and you will then receive a full report on the SCOPE of your program upon arrival at Boot Camp.
