Harvard School of Education’s Whimsical Approach To Begging Alumni For Money

I thought I had seen it all. Then I saw the new video just produced by the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The team there took a different approach to fund raising and development. Namely, they avoided the elephant in the room and simply used their brainstorming session as the actual tool to get donations.

It’s a creative and fun approach to something that is obviously quite difficult in this financial climate. Despite the video being scripted, it still felt at least a little impromptu and genuine. Especially the ‘holiday-themed flash mob in the library.’

Have you seen any creative and innovative approaches to development / fund raising for schools? I’d love to check them out and feature them on the site. Just tweet the videos to @edudemic or post them on the Facebook page. Thanks!
