The rapid growth of international fundraising by educational institutions is an outgrowth of an unprecedented, large-scale exchange of products, people, and cultures. Institutions that previously had taken a piecemeal approach to global education have embraced a global mission, and advancement is falling in sync. International fundraising also acknowledges shifting wealth patterns, particularly the rise of Asian economies. Whether at home or abroad, successful fundraising must align with institutions' missions, say advancement professionals. Given the obstacles and the expense, international fundraising isn't for the meek or "the faint of purse." It is a matter for explorers. Education has become an interconnected global enterprise, and the pursuit of funds to support it inevitably must follow--wherever that pursuit leads. The basic strategy comes down to making friends and visiting them often.
