Great to hear from you.. My research shows that ‘Best Practice’ is 1:1 return in Year One (incl salaries)
2:1 in Year Two
3:1 + in Year Three and beyond.
The Board must realise that is takes time to develop the really significant donations.
All potential major donors should be identified and listed with your Committee – these are those who have significant net worth and significant interest and involvement in your school.
All should then have a plan on informing them, nurturing them and making them feel part of the overall plan and solution.
