Development

A healthy school happens by design. SCSBC is committed to helping your school thrive by supporting your school’s development initiatives, nurturing them as they take root and grow. Our goal is your school’s long term sustainability.

SCSBC provides individual school support in recruitment and re-recruitment strategies, community engagement initiatives, marketing and communication plans, volunteer management, annual giving programs, legacy giving and the stewarding of giving relationships.

We will work collaboratively with you to help you build and maintain robust enrolment, a supportive community and a strong culture of giving. Together we will identify your priorities and establish a framework for Development that fits the unique culture of your school.

We will also assist your school during a major capital campaign by conducting an external feasibility study to determine the ability and willingness of your community to support the proposed project and will provide ongoing support during the campaign.

SCSBC is here to serve you and is pleased to come alongside and help you develop strategies to share your vision and bring people into meaningful and committed relationships with your school.

Cathy Kits

Director of Development

Cathy Kits

When it came time to make a decision for her childrens’ education, Cathy found herself captivated by the possibility of integrating faith and learning. She soon found herself immersed in and enveloped by the Christian school community in Langley. More importantly, she was transformed into a passionate believer in Christian education.

This led to 15 years of service as the Director of Development at Langley Christian School; years of great learning and stretching, growing the Development program from infancy to young adulthood. During this time she presented at conferences on all things related to development work in Christian schools and provided consultant services for SCSBC and Endeavour (Australia).

In 2015 Cathy joined the team at SCSBC as the Director of Development where she is responsible for providing resources and leadership to Christian schools in their development initiatives as they seek to grow enrolment, build strong community, develop fundraising strategies, engage in capital campaigns and strive to maintain long term financial sustainability. She thrives on the synergy of professionals working collaboratively to turn challenges into opportunities.
