With Simon Tumansky, ChalkBooks CEO

School development teams are working harder and being stretched thin.

To do more with less, school development teams must become more efficient.

Schools are becoming more expensive to operate, and development goals have to go up, but the development budget for staff and resources isn’t increasing enough to keep pace.

The only way to grow giving is to automate time-consuming development work and gain time to focus on more personalized outreach.

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

With ChalkBooks, development teams at independent schools can now write powerful, personalized cultivation emails in under 5 minutes, saving valuable time for more strategic tasks.

Accelerate your development lifecycle

Deliver hyper-personalized outreach at every stage of your cultivation cycle, in a fraction of the time of manual outreach.

Send personalized emails in mere minutes with AI-powered copy and instantly-available donor details populated from automated donor meeting voice notes.

Prepare for meetings with prospects faster

Prepare the Head of School, Trustees and the development team for prospect meetings in minutes. Draft and share real-time updated prospect profile summaries in minutes.

Leverage the power of AI to extract the top priorities from recent conversations to build stronger relationships, faster.

Grow trust with donors with automatic stewardship management

Donors trust organizations that communicate with them promptly and professionally.

Increase donors' trust with automated stewardship built to optimize time-to-first-thanks and enable a continuous stewardship cycle to keep donors updated on the impact of their gifts.
