Independent School Head/Chief Development Officer Survey Report

Do school heads believe they're getting adequate support from chief fundraisers? Do fundraisers believe that their school heads understand their roles in fundraising success?

In fall 2011, CASE conducted parallel surveys of independent school heads and chief development officers to gather their perspectives on their roles and relationship. Findings were presented at the 2012 CASE-NAIS Independent Schools Conference and are reflected in the presentation below.

The surveys can still be used by heads and chief development officers as a basis for conversation about ways they can work together most effectively to raise private support for their school. For example, the head and chief development officer might each download and take the appropriate survey below, compare their results to the broader findings, identify areas of mutual agreement, explore opportunities for improvement and grow understanding of each other’s role.
