We understand the unique value proposition of an independent school education and the vital role that philanthropy plays in helping schools achieve their mission.

In the past year alone, CCS Fundraising experts partnered with over 130 schools as trusted advisors and thought partners, working shoulder-to-shoulder with them to design and to implement successfully the endowment, capital, and annual fundraising initiatives that help schools change lives.

CCS was paramount in the success of our campaign. They helped our small team organize around advancement efforts, assisted in organizing and professionalizing our development efforts, and created resources that effectively communicated the campaign to our donors. CCS was not just a consultant for our campaign but provided operational support for the entire organization based on best practices in the fundraising industry.
