Helping organizational leaders advocate for their cause

When Akiva School sought to create an endowment fund to ensure its long-term sustainability, the Montreal-based school knew that helping board and staff members campaign effectively would be key to success. Giving Tree coached Akiva School’s leaders on effective solicitation techniques, enabling the school to raise $3.5 million – more than double its initial goal.
