Annually, schools make up over one third of our clients. These schools come in all shapes and sizes, with annual giving programs ranging from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars, and campaigns ranging from a few million to several hundred million.
Service to our school clients is enhanced by the existence of our Schools Practice Group. In this Practice Group, consultants share strategies, analyze trends, develop research projects and prepare position papers to keep Marts & Lundy in the forefront of philanthropy to schools. (One such research project can be found in our website archives: Preparing for the Independent School Endowment Campaign
The Schools Practice Group is led by Kathleen Hanson, senior consultant and principal. Along with her considerable experience in assisting clients with their fundraising programs, Kathy is also a recognized expert in school marketing. In 2011 she was selected to edit The NAIS Handbook on Marketing Independent Schools. Other members of our Schools Practice Group are listed below.
