Advancement at Mulgrave
Many of you may be wondering – what in the world is Advancement? What does the Advancement department do at Mulgrave anyway?
Advancement is about supporting Mulgrave’s future- and the future of your child’s education, ensuring Mulgrave offers a truly exceptional, personalised and enriched education to prepare children to lead fulfilled, successful and meaningful lives.
Yes, Advancement is focused on ‘advancing’ the school’s strategic direction through fundraising. But it is about more than that – it is about ‘philanthropy’ (from Greek, ‘love of humankind’), and the whole community supporting students in their IB journey to gain a global perspective and greater understanding of the world.
Throughout history, successful educational institutions have at their heart a culture of philanthropy where parents, students, teachers and the entire school community are committed to a spirit of giving.
Mulgrave has incredibly generous parents and supporters: an extraordinary $31 million was raised over the recent three-year ImagineMulgrave campaign. And we are optimistic that the Mulgrave community will continue to innovate and inspire through generous donations.
We are ambitious for our children and our school. In reality, the tuition fee covers little more than salaries and operational costs. Mulgrave will be an even greater school if we continue to inspire philanthropic support and invest in improved educational opportunities, teaching and facilities.
It is a great honour to serve Mulgrave School, and I invite you to drop by anytime to have a conversation with me or any of the amazing advancement professionals on our team. Tell us about your hopes for your children’s future and Mulgrave’s growth. Join us to invest in your children’s’ future.
