Foxcroft Earns Gold Circle of Excellence Award from CASE
Foxcroft School is excited to announce that it has been honored as a 2018 Gold Circle of Excellence Award recipient by The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), a global membership association of educational institutions.
Established in 1994, the Circle of Excellence program recognizes outstanding work in advancement services, alumni relations, communications, and fundraising at colleges, universities, independent schools, and nonprofit organizations around the world. This year, more than 3,000 entries were submitted in nearly 100 categories by 676 educational institutions and affiliated organizations around the world.
Foxcroft’s publication, Together We Will Step Boldly into the Future: The Centennial Campaign for Foxcroft School, was one of just two Gold Award winners in the category of Fundraising Publications Packages. Foxcroft was the only secondary school honored this year for its work in this area.
A 12-page, dual-pocketed booklet with accompanying collateral materials, Together We Will Step Boldly into the Future was designed to solicit gifts from supporters of the School community toward completion of a multi-year, $75 million campaign effort. Earlier this year, Foxcroft announced that it had completed the campaign two years early and nearly $5 million over goal.
“We are very fortunate to have a supportive community of donors and are thrilled that our campaign piece received such a distinct honor,” said Foxcroft’s Director of Institutional Advancement Marion L. Couzens. “During this campaign we received a $40 million gift from alumna Ruth Bedford ’32 — the largest given to an independent girls school — and more than doubled our endowment. Receiving the Gold Circle of Excellence Award from CASE is a crowning touch to what has been an historic campaign for Foxcroft.”
In its official Judges Report, CASE representatives wrote that they “loved how this piece was put together and it included all aspects of giving (especially the estate side. Very wise). It was something different that we normally don’t get to see all the time.”
