CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT Brighton College Brighton College is an independent school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18 years, and today is one of Britain's leading schools, having been named 'UK Independent School of the Year 2013-14' at the Independent Schools Awards. The Development Office at Brighton College was set up in 2010 and works with Old Brightonians, parents and friends of the college to raise funds for the development of the school's facilities and for scholarships and bursaries for pupils. Over the last few years, the College has run multiple Capital Campaigns, helping fund a new sports pavilion, a new music school and a new teaching building. A recent appeal to raise funds for a World War One memorial in honour of the 149 Old Brightonians who were killed in battle raised over £140,000, mainly through Blackbaud Online Express. Why did you choose Raiser's Edge NXT ™ as your fundraising solution? "We did have another fundraising system in place but, to be honest, it was becoming more of a hindrance than a help. We had to run other third-party systems alongside it for things like email marketing, online payments and event management, which meant we were doubling up on admin. Staff were reluctant to use it and we often found ourselves with lots of additional spreadsheets, and no real strategic overview of our development programme. "When I look back to where we were two years ago with our old fundraising system, I can't believe how far we've come... What we now have in place is far more sophisticated than I ever could have imagined." —Scott Sheridan, Director of Development Brighton College is powered by: Raiser's Edge NXT ™ Blackbaud Online Express ™ Learn more +44 (0) 207 601 7100
