The Challenge: Build Long Term Capacity for Our Development Effort
Saint Xavier High School, a boys’ Catholic secondary school sponsored by the Xaverian Brothers in Louisville, Kentucky, has benefited from a long, multi-faceted relationship with Gonser Gerber since 1986. Over the past 26 years, Gonser Gerber has worked with school leadership on alumni association reorganization, advancement audit and staff mentoring, three campaign feasibility studies, counsel for three major campaigns, two strategic plans, and a search for a Director of Admissions. Spanning the leadership of three Heads of School, Saint Xavier has returned to Gonser Gerber for multiple projects and contracts following proven and lasting results.
“An ongoing culture of mission advancement and philanthropic support has taken root at Saint Xavier due to the wise counsel and support of Gonser Gerber and the highly talented Advancement Team assembled by Michael Littell, VP for Advancement. Gonser Gerber’s approach provided the foundation and motivation that encouraged our staff to build lasting relationships and comprehensive structures that continue to yield extraordinary results. Each project has further developed the relationship between the firm and our institution. Every penny spent has been a wise investment in securing the friends, funds and freshmen that extend the legacy and reach of a vibrant mission.”
