ABADO, the Association of Bay Area Development Officers, is a networking group for development professionals working in independent schools. Every year we complete a benchmarking survey in which we share data from the year’s development efforts. We also meet several times a year for workshops on topics of mutual interest, such as school anniversaries, prospect research for the small shop, building a young alumni program, special events, and orienting new parents to school fundraising.
The ABADO listserv is a valuable resource for the group where members can post questions and information pertinent to our unique niche in the world of independent school advancement. If you are interested in joining the listserv, please click here.
We also maintain a list of current job openings in independent school development. For current employment opportunities, click here.
