CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT St Peter's School Set on farming acreage in Hamilton, New Zealand, St Peter's School is a leading educational institution with a rich history and even richer community of students, staff and parents. But when Sharon Roux began as Director of Advancement, she knew that the St Peter's community was missing its alumni in more ways than one. An undeveloped engagement plan had led to community events that didn't hit the mark – and to countless missed fundraising opportunities. It was a double-edged challenge: low donation income had limited the school's budget for investment in their students, but it also meant that the community suffered a thin relationship with its alumni. Sharon puts it bluntly: "No one understood what professional fundraising and alumni relations looked like when I arrived." Laying a Strong Foundation When Sharon started, she knew that her team needed a strong, reliable system that did more than manage data. The school needed something that would help them cultivate relationships. St Peter's School is powered by: Blackbaud Raiser's Edge NXT ™ "I haven't come across any other tool which helps major gifts fundraisers as well as Raiser's Edge NXT." —Sharon Roux, Director of Advancement, St Peter's School September 2019 1 +61 2 8918 1200 | sales@blackbaud.com.au | www.blackbaud.com.au
