Our Work at Cow Hollow School

Cow Hollow School is a beautiful little school nestled in the Presidio in San Francisco that offers parent participation, part day programs for children ages 2-5.

I’ve been working with Cow Hollow School since spring 2019 to help them prepare for a future capital campaign that will enable them to move locations and expand their access to a more diverse student body. I started with an audit of their advancement program -- from admission, to messaging, to fundraising to their Board of Trustees.

Many of my recommendations have been implemented: such as the migration to a true development database and their first foray into prospect research.

I continue to offer ongoing counsel to the School Director and key Board members on strategy and messaging.


Barbara's expertise, insight, and ability to read what our school needs to move forward with our strategic plan and capital campaign, as well as advice about what might be holding us back, was beyond helpful. It was illuminating and spot-on at every turn.
