It was one of those phone calls, out of the blue, unexpected but not unwelcome! This summer, Director of Advancement PJ O’Connell received word from the Council on Aid and Support of Education (CASE) that Tabor had been recognized as a recipient of a 2019 Excellence in Fundraising Award.
CASE’s Educational Fundraising Awards annually recognize exemplary development programs based on a blind review of data submitted to the CASE AMAtlas Voluntary Support of Education (VSE) survey. CASE member institutions that have participated in the VSE for the past three years are automatically considered. A group of experienced educational fundraisers spends hours reviewing the data to determine the recipients, and Tabor was one of two schools in our peer group to be recognized (schools are segmented according to endowment size).
“I’m of course proud of the Advancement team, but the recognition is actually a reflection of the entire school’s commitment to Tabor students. And most of all, it’s evidence of an incredibly generous community of donors,” said O’Connell. “This is about them.”
Head of School John Quirk added, "A central element of our mission is about instilling a passion for high achievement, and recognition like this is an indication that we're making great strides. When our alumni, parents, and friends choose to support the school in increasing numbers, as they have in recent years, it says to me that what we're doing is resonating in really profound ways."
