  • Advancement at Magellan

Magellan International School's advancement department plays a pivotal role in strategic planning and growth initiatives. Through annual and capital fundraising campaigns, the department secures financial support from parents, engaged alumni, and the community, enhancing educational programs and facilities. Maintaining strong ties with our community is prioritized, fostering relationships through school wide events and social media. Effective communication is central, with the advancement department crafting and sharing compelling stories about the school's achievements. 

A much loved responsibility is the position of a volunteer liaison, harnessing the skills of parents, alumni, and the community to support school programs. Additionally, Magellan could not provide the students with the robust experience they have without the dedication of volunteers. The department's strategic event planning not only creates fundraising opportunities but strengthens community ties and enhances the school's reputation. In collaboration with school leadership, the advancement team aligns fundraising efforts with the institution's mission and academic priorities.

In summary, the Magellan International School's advancement department has a multifaceted approach to facilitating strategic planning, community engagement, and financial support, laying the foundation for the school's continued growth and success. We feel privileged to work with a team of truly great people, united in our commitment to Magellan's success and the positive impact we can make together.
