Services: Development and Alumni Relations, Strategic Counsel, Case for Support

Graham-Pelton Consulting recently partnered with Guildhall School of Music & Drama to create a Development and Alumni Relations Plan. Graham-Pelton conducted strategic discussions with Senior Leadership in order to inform the production of a strong Case for Support and discern what leadership expects from the fundraising and alumni relations area. Strategic discussions also took place with members of the Development and Alumni Relation team as part of the plan creation process and alignment of expectations among Senior Leadership and staff. In addition, Graham-Pelton reviewed and made recommendations for comprehensive initiatives including communications, social media strategies, volunteer alumni groups, and board involvement. The deliverable was an overall Strategic Fundraising Plan, complete with observations, findings, and recommendations based on Graham-Pelton’s assessment. This document will serve as a blueprint for Guildhall School of Music & Drama’s fundraising activities for the period 2015-2018 and beyond.
