Forecasting Your Annual Fund:
What 2020 and 2021 Data Tell Us and Why it Matters for Your School’s Budget
For: Development Directors, Directors of Annual Giving, and other Fundraising Professionals
Thursday, April 29, 2021;
11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Join us to review the Council for Advancement and Support of Education Pulse Survey on Annual Giving in FY 21, as well as other surveys from the past year. The session will investigate what the data mean for Independent Schools right now and what they may – or may not – tell us for FY 22. This will provide a critical look into what’s happening around the country in annual giving and with regards to parent and alumni participation. We will also look at both anecdotal and statistical trends that will likely influence advancement work in the next 12-18 months.
