Being a head of school is both challenging and rewarding work. Heads of school and those who aspire to the role are expected to engage alumni and parents and raise money effectively; yet, most have received little or no training or support in advancement. In Fundraising for Schools: 8 Keys to Success Every Head of School Should Know, veteran fundraising consultant Linda Wise McNay demystifies fundraising for school leaders. This innovative book will guide school leaders on: How heads of school should manage their time in every stage of their fundraising and stewardship efforts The importance of board leadership The critical relationship between the head of school and, if there is one, the chief development officer Detailed instruction on "how to ask" McNay offers lessons that she routinely shares with her independent school clients. Some schools do not have a chief development officer or experienced advancement staff. She shares detailed explanations of which fundraising tasks are the most important and which should be undertaken first by school leadership. She explains annual giving, major giving, capital campaigns, and the school's endowment. This book is organized into eight chapters: Chapter One: Three Secrets to Successful Fundraising. Schools cannot be supported by tuition alone. Therefore, the head of school needs to devote significant time and attention to fundraising. A school leader must be able to present the case for support and lead the board and staff in a team effort to ask for funds, all while following a coordinated plan of action. Chapter Two: Fundraising Methods by Rate of Return. A school fundraising plan should include scheduled direct mail, telephone, event, sponsorship, email, and personal solicitations. Effectiveness of all solicitations is enhanced with an accurate database and appropriate stewardship. Chapter Three: The Big Ask. The head of school needs to be able to talk about money-a lot. The greatest reason people give money is because they are asked in person! Chapter Four: Forge a Lasting Partnership with the Chief Development Officer. Development is the process of building long-term, positive, and mutually beneficial relationships between donors and the school. This is best achieved by the combined efforts of the head of school and the development staff member(s) and volunteers. It is definitely not a one-person job. Chapter Five: A Primary Responsibility of the Board Is to Raise Money. One hundred percent of board members should participate in fundraising both as donors and in soliciting others to all campaigns at your school. Chapter Six: Operational Funds Have Less Donor Appeal, but They Are Essential. Most schools begin their fundraising efforts with the annual fund. You must create a case for annual operating needs and train your volunteers on the importance of unrestricted giving. Chapter Seven: Capital Campaigns Occur Every Three to Five Years, so Prepare Yourself. Everyone is an annual fund prospect. Some donors are also capital gift prospects. The top 10 donors are critical to your campaign success. Chapter Eight: Endowment Building for the Future. The best way to build an endowment for your school is to initiate a planned giving program.
