Our Work at Trinity School

Trinity School is a private pre-school and elementary school in Menlo Park, California.

They retained me to conduct an Advancement Appraisal of their program. With a relatively new Director of Advancement, and two new members of the leadership team in enrollment and business, the Head of School sought this deep dive to prepare them to build a more cohesive and collaborative effort.

As they finish their strategic planning process and identify their priorities for the next few years, the appraisal report and recommendations will guide their work attracting, retaining, and stewarding key supporters.



We couldn't be happier - and most importantly, more strategic, productive, and confident - resulting from the work of Barbara Barron. The Advancement Appraisal that Barbara completed was specific to the Trinity community, provided relevant and readily applicable recommendations, was comprehensive and thorough. Trinity's philanthropic work is greatly enhanced thanks to Barbara's expertise and care.
