Philanthropy Rx

work that gets results

Independent Schools

Chicagoland Jewish High School

Worked closely with CJHS's board chair and campaign committee to create and implement a fundraising plan that would allow the Chicagoland Jewish High School to successfully complete its $28 million capital campaign while sustaining annual giving.

Result: Created a multi-level fundraising plan for the School and assisted in its execution by: drafting fiscal year end solicitation letters and donor correspondence for Head of School and President of the Board; crafting foundation proposals; preparing staffing memoranda for volunteer solicitation calls; creating campaign progress and philanthropic revenue reports; establishing standards for entering and retrieving donor information in the CJHS's Raiser's Edge database; and identifying prospective major gift donors by conducting research on current and prospective CJHS parents and friends.

The University of Chicago Laboratory Schools

In preparation for the launch of a major fundraising campaign, Philanthropy Rx audited the Lab School's Development department by meeting with trustees, key donors, and staff and conducting a peer institution benchmarking study.

Result: Development office was restructured. Philanthropy Rx assisted in the identification and successful recruitment of its Executive Director of Development and Alumni Relations.
