Outspoken fundraising consultant David Poppitt is convinced every school should have a well thought-out and strategic fundraising strategy.
When Poppitt saw a recent BBC documentary about Brownhills School in Stoke-on-Trent, he was appalled that the school's campaign to attract the essential £50,000 for a specialist status bid had raised less than £1,000.
