Boards & Giving at Independent Schools
Fundraisers are taught that a strong board is key to building a culture of philanthropy. But how much of that is fact and how much is anecdote? In 2019, Marts & Lundy launched a research study with CASE’s Independent School Leadership Group (ISLG) to develop a better understanding of the board characteristics associated with higher total giving at top performing independent schools.
Thirty-one members of the ISLG took part in the study, including 15 boarding schools and 16 day schools.
