Our work impacts music and drama and our School serves as a global leader of creative and professional practice, promoting innovation, experiment and research in the performing arts worldwide.

Graham-Pelton 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 serves as a blueprint for Guildhall School of Music & Drama’s fundraising activities.

Graham-Pelton additionally has provided interim staffing services for the roles of Director of Advancement and Database Manager and a planning study that tested £20 million of strategic campaign priorities for the School.
