Each year, we work with the GSD team to develop cohesive annual campaigns, event designs, and reports for alumni and donors. Because of the design-savvy audience, many of whom are luminaries in their fields, it has been imperative that all outreach is of the highest quality, boldly highlighting the important work of students and faculty.

The campaigns have resulted in a marked increase in fundraising, including a 40% increase in donations as a direct result of the 2017 Annual Giving campaign. The campaign received a bronze CASE Excellence Award in 2018, which recognizes innovative work in educational fundraising and special events.

The campaigns have enhanced alumni and donor engagement with the school, adding at least 90 new members donor societies each year, and providing financial aid to over 650 students per year.
