University of La Verne
Founded in 1891, the University of La Verne is one of California’s oldest institutions of higher education and is recognized for excellence as a top-ranked private school in U.S. News & World Report’s Best College Rankings. Partnering with The Phoenix Philanthropy Group, the University of La Verna combined optimism, enthusiasm, and resourcefulness to undertake a $125 million Create the Future campaign. Our work included an extensive feasibility/positioning study that uncovered significant untapped potential, and campaign planning, preparation, and management activities. The University was the 2017 recipient of the Top Overall Improvement honor in CASE’s (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) Educational Fundraising Awards. Led by their dynamic president, the campaign exceeded its goal in 2020 with an exceptional level of contributed income coming from Trustees and their families.
“Phoenix Philanthropy’s consultants have broad experience, nationally and internationally, and are creative and focused. They are mission-driven, consummate professionals who are knowledgeable and experienced in every aspect of the world of Advancement. I especially appreciate the personal attention The Phoenix Philanthropy Group offers me and my staff. They do far more than dispense advice; they provide tools, strategies, calendars, and samples that allow us to move forward strategically and efficiently.”
