I’m excited to offer you an assessment that can help you answer this question. If you’re a leader in higher education, please use the assessment to identify any gaps in your advancement office or foundation and then develop a plan to resolve them. For example, you may determine you need to hire a consultant or request additional resources. You may use this tool to prove that need to the president and/or board of your institution.
This assessment is based on my dissertation research and professional experience, and is designed specifically to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of institutional advancement offices and foundations. I have led three such offices and wish I had developed this tool sooner. I would have given almost anything to be able to hire a consultant to help me with some of the challenges that I faced at all three institutions.
Those colleagues who have seen my assessment tool believe it is very helpful. This is your opportunity to see how you can improve your units and achieve greater success in fundraising, public relations and/or marketing.
I’m offering this 11-page-assessment for free. Here is a sneak preview from the section on accreditation.
