The Bryn Mawr School
In 2002, The Bryn Mawr School, an independent day school for girls, enlisted GG+A to assess the School’s readiness to execute a $25 million campaign, the largest in the School’s history. After evaluating Bryn Mawr’s fundraising capabilities and interviewing key leaders and prospective donors, GG+A recommended campaign strategies programs to increase alumnae participation, build successful major gift and volunteer strategies, and grow the Annual Fund.
A Successful Campaign for Bryn Mawr School
When Bryn Mawr announced its campaign four years later, it had already secured $19 million in gifts and pledges and opened its new academic building, funded by early campaign commitments. A year later, the School was recognized for its improved and exemplary fundraising efforts by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). Bryn Mawr exceeded its campaign goals, celebrated the School’s Centennial, and built a strong foundation for its ongoing philanthropic efforts.
After the campaign, Bryn Mawr set and achieved new fundraising goals for the renovation of its Lower School and for upgraded athletic fields. The School has continued to build its annual, major and planned gift programs during post-campaign years. GG+A continues to partner with Bryn Mawr, serving as counsel to the School’s leadership as it considers a new set of strategic initiatives and its next campaign. In addition to ongoing counsel, GG+A has provided a refreshed analysis of Bryn Mawr’s database to guide decisions about fundraising goals and staff resources.
