CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT Le Jardin Academy Le Jardin Academy is an International Baccalaureate World School located in Kailua, Hawaii that provides its students with a global education. The school strives to create curious, active learners who excel scholastically and have the opportunity to develop their personal skills and talents. The students are supported in learning to lead balanced, healthy lives, to appreciate the arts, and to value the diverse perspectives of other people and cultures. Finding the Right Solution for Le Jardin Academy's Development Needs Le Jardin Academy brought Shannon Cleary on in January of 2016 to run the advancement department, which was a new initiative for the school. The school received a grant that was requested by the board of directors because they felt that starting an advancement office would benefit their growing school. When Shannon came on board, her immediate task was to look at the systems and positions that the school currently had in place. One of the major changes that she set in motion was moving to a model that encompassed an associate director of development, associate director of communications, stewardship and relations coordinator, and a data coordinator. Prior to this, the school had individual roles for marketing, public relations, and development. "We have had such a successful migration to Raiser's Edge NXT that we want other schools to know that advancement and tech can work together in order to make these moves. It doesn't have to be the entire school or nothing." —Shannon Cleary, Director of Institutional Advancement Le Jardin Academy is powered by • Raiser's Edge NXT ™ • Blackbaud Online Express ™ • Blackbaud Merchant Services ™ Learn More about Raiser's Edge NXT 800.443.9441 June 2017
