The Summit Country Day School

BACKGROUND

The Summit Country Day School is a prestigious independent Catholic school located in Cincinnati, Ohio. The school has maintained a proud legacy of excellence through a coeducational learning experience for students from Montessori preschool through grade 12 throughout the metropolitan Cincinnati area. A nationally recognized leader in character education, The Summit offers a compelling combination of small classes, caring faculty, academic rigor and strong spiritual values.

CHALLENGE

Changing Our World embarked upon a twenty-month engagement with The Summit in February 2014. The objectives of the engagement were two-fold: 1) implement an $18.6 million Aiming Higher comprehensive campaign in support of ‘Building the Campus’ through capital improvements, ‘Ensuring the Future’ through the endowment and ‘Strengthening Excellence’ through the annual fund; and, 2) building internal capacity to further enhance development efforts during and post-campaign. In conjunction with The Summit’s 125th Anniversary, the campaign successfully concluded at the end of 2015.

SOLUTION

The Summit surpassed the $18.6 million goal and has raised over $19 million to date. Through this engagement fundraising success was achieved, new leadership was engaged, the philanthropic culture of the school was enhanced, and development efforts were enriched.
