The CASE Library provides this sample collection of crowdfunding campaigns at colleges and universities around the world. Campaign goals vary from supplementing research funding and scholarships to student initiated projects and matching funds. Some institutions create their own crowdfunding platforms while others partner with existing platforms.
The CASE Library has created this collection to support advancement professionals who work with volunteers. It includes information on recruiting, hiring, managing, evaluating, and stewarding volunteers. It also offers resources on volunteers working in specific functions, such as admissions, alumni relations, fundraising, and government relations.
CASE recently partnered with GG+A to sponsor the annual CASE—GG+A Research and Advanced Practices Symposium designed to showcase active research and innovation in the field of advancement. The topic of 2022's symposium was "Remote Engagement." In light of this, the CASE Library has created this collection with further reading on remote engagement of staff, donors, and alumni.
Between Zoom meetings and presenting on webinars, most of us are on camera far more than ever before. You can increase the effectiveness of your video presentations by paying attention to issues such as lighting and sound.
When you work in institutional advancement, whether in higher education or at an independent school, your success is measured in meeting or exceeding goals. Whatever those goals may be— increasing contributions to the school’s annual fund or obtaining a certain number of major gifts—integrating your advancement team can get you there faster.
Resetting your independent school fundraising strategy
Have you been struggling for new ideas on how to generate more funding for your independent school? Maybe the special events and donation appeals that worked in the past are not working as well anymore. Perhaps you are grappling with ways to appeal to a wider base of donors or to increase your average donation size.
