Advancement Academy

Date(s): 7/27/2020 — 7/31/2020 Location: Philadelphia, PA Status: Confirmed Credits: 40 IACP

 

A New Approach to Marketing, Admission, and Fundraising. Unmatched Results.

Hundreds of schools have surpassed their enrollment management, development, and marketing goals after attending ISM’s Advancement Academy. With ISM, learn how you can lead with clarity and achieve extraordinary results.

Attending the Academy completely changed my career. I went from feeling skeptical and scared to being much more comfortable. When I implemented what I learned, nearly 1/3 of our donors gave more than in the previous year, and collectively gave more than $100,000 over our school's proposed asks. We attribute that to the personalized letter strategy and individualized asks we planned at the Academy.
