Success in fundraising is not simply about securing donations. Success requires leaders to look at our institutions from our stakeholders’ perspectives, and endeavour to determine their passions as they relate to the work of our institutions. This is a responsibility not taken lightly, and requires an understanding of the role and purpose of philanthropy throughout the university.

Sue Cunningham, president and chief executive officer of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), an international association of educational institutions serving education leaders and advancement practitioners in their efforts to advance education to transform lives and society, will lead this masterclass on the university as a philanthropic organization.

Ms. Cunningham will draw from her three-decade career in advancement that started in the theatre community in Wales, and took her to the University of St. Andrews, the University of Oxford, the University of Melbourne, and now to CASE, where she leads a global organization of more than 3,700 member institutions. She has led campaigns at three universities, developed the international capacity for fundraising at those institutions, spoken to countless groups of education leaders on the role and purpose of philanthropy in education, and brings experience and international context to this conversation.
