Compton Fundraising Consultants

Schools & Colleges

Compton has been helping schools to raise capital funding and establish ongoing fundraising programmes since the early 1960s. Many schools and colleges have development plans covering major building work, teaching and learning space and bursary or scholarship funding. Schools are, by their nature, “closed constituencies” of parents, alumni and other stakeholders who value the particular ethos and education that their institution has brought them: and these core audiences is where successful fundraising should start. Schools and colleges that carefully test their potential and gear their fundraising programmes to ambitious but realistic goals tend to be very successful.
Wycombe Abbey School: 120 years of excellence

Wycombe Abbey is the top independent girl’s boarding school in the UK. We were invited to work with the Headmistress and Governors in late 2014 to reorganise the School’s development office - and went on from this initial review to plan and manage the first phase of capital fundraising for new boarding houses linked to Wycombe’s 120th Anniversary celebrations in 2016.

Thanks to a number of generous major gifts the campaign the £6 million goal was surpassed.

Since then we have built on the momentum of the capital campaign and introduced annual giving and legacy campaigns. 

The School’s latest phase of fundraising under our direction of Development and Communications operations has yielded £1.6 million in major gifts since January 2019.
