They worked through an agreed set of topics: motivating donors, alumni relations, the use of fundraising consultants, and recruiting fundraising staff, and found that, irrespective of the type of school or the size of the fundraising goal, their challenges and solutions were quite similar. They agreed to organise further meetings, and possibly invite experts to address them.
