Given the changing boarding school population, TABS and Marts & Lundy agreed to partner in an in-depth study of internationalism and advancement. The objective of the study was to answer two questions:
- How does an increasingly international constituency affect boarding school fundraising?
- What are the practices and resources that lead to effective fundraising with international constituents?
Our hypothesis is that some of the characteristics of giving from abroad are different from those of domestic philanthropy, yet philanthropy’s underlying essentials of being engaged, valued and part of the boarding school community are the same.
