Severn School Thank You Video for Leadership Giving

A Little Gratitude Goes A Long Way

  • Demonstrated the impact of philanthropic contributions in real, personalized context
  • Strengthened relationships with donors and secured future gifts

The Severn School development office contacted me to create a video for one of the school’s major donors to be shown during their annual “Leadership Circle Appreciation” event. The donor, his family, and other members at the one million+ level of philanthropy were in attendance. This particular donor had contributed funds and counsel for several school initiatives for over ten years, most recently the school’s technology and innovation center.

This video bolstered the school’s philanthropic relationship with this particular family, and also prompted other donors at the event to inquire about future giving opportunities.

The storyline, background photos, and video were masterfully assembled. Thank you for showing Severn’s special campus, school, faculty and student body. Everyone enjoys the ability to look back and see what they have been a part of and who else was participating in the venture — to see themselves in the dream of what they hoped to achieve. Your photos and videos make this all possible.
