In preparation for an unprecedented fundraising and community engagement initiative, St. John’s University partnered with Changing Our World to conduct a planning study with the goal of developing a comprehensive plan that would increase the number of donors engaged with the University, and deepen that support such that it creates new, reliable streams of sustainable funding.
To augment traditional fundraising activities, Changing Our World employed a data-driven approach to understand the University’s changing environment both internally and externally. The effort included a variety of research and analytical initiatives, including income projections, giving and engagement analysis, and environment mapping, coupled with interviews and surveys.
The analysis revealed a fundamental demographic, gender, and age change in the nature of the University’s constituency, and an emerging change in views of philanthropy.
In addition as the School of Law underwent a strategic planning process and in response to recommendations made in a recent ABA Site Team Report, St. John’s Law School engaged Changing Our World to conduct an audit of development operations. Leveraging the tactics outlined above, Changing Our World assigned a team to place specific emphasis on the development efforts of the Law School to inform its future planning and to enable the Law School to maximize fundraising support and alumni engagement in the future.
