Save the Date for our second annual INSPIRE event hosted by the Archdiocese of Seattle Office for Catholic Schools. This is the official page for the event and will be updated regularly with more details.

What is INSPIRE?
INSPIRE is an Advancement event focused on bringing teams from across the Archdiocese (and beyond!) together for some inspiration, learning, and collaboration with colleagues. YOU are an important part of growing your school.

It is time for Catholic Schools across the country to step it up in all areas of Advancement! In the Archdiocese of Seattle, we are committed to bringing key staff, administrators, and other professionals from across the country to think out of the box and begin to put into practice effective strategies to strengthen our schools and grow our reach.

INSPIRE offers a unique platform for learning, networking, sharing best practices, and exploring innovative strategies for school growth and development. (Domain 4: Operational Vitality, NSBECS)

Highlights of the conference include keynote address, interactive breakout sessions, and an opportunity to engage with fellow participants during a networking session. The Finalsite-SchoolAdmin Team will also be with us all day to offer support and one-on-one consultation.

The agenda encompasses a wide range of topics, covering the areas of enrollment management, fundraising & planned giving, social media, branding basics, Canva instruction, value propositions, data analysis, efficiencies & hospitality in the school office, family engagement, marketing our Catholic identity, tuition assistance discussions with families, and more. Full list of sessions coming soon.
