The independent school development acceleration platform.

The only modern AI advancement CRM, donor communication and prospect research platform built to help independent school advancement teams raise more.

Competition for donors is higher than ever.

To build deep relationships with your prospects, you need highly personalized outreach at scale.

Schools are often last in line for donation requests (behind colleges, local charities, and community organizations).

Have you ever visited a donor only to see their college's development representatives leaving the office right before you? (True story!)

Challenging competition for donor attention and time means only the most personalized and relevant outreach moves donors along the cultivation cycle.

But personalization is time-consuming. A thoughtfully written, personalized email can take at least 30 minutes to write!

Enter ChalkBooks. Now advancement teams at independent schools are empowered to write powerful, personalized emails in under 5 minutes.
