St. Ann’s Catholic Church
Prairie Village, KS
700% Annual Giving Raised
St. Ann’s parish boasted a thriving 450-student school and a church community with a strong senior citizen backbone, many of whom had been parishioners since the parish was built. With plans to update the parish that would benefit the old and young, community members of all ages would have to unite in conducting a successful capital campaign. Coached by Church Development, St. Ann’s met its unprecedented fundraising goals.
Best practices will help you avoid raising less than you could.
We’re proud of our work integrating best practices of fundraising and spirituality with over 300 churches over the past 30 years. The consensus among all denominational leaders is that professional consultants raise more than campaigns run without a professional.
“For us to raise over 600% of annual giving in our capital campaign, in the face of an economic crisis, was truly astounding. Thank you for the help!“
“Church Development worked hard at tailoring the campaign to our unique needs. Our previous consultants helped us raise 1.1x annual giving. Church Development helped us raise 1.5x annual giving.“
“Through our capital campaign, church members’ lives were transformed. Now, our annual giving, volunteerism and attendance have all increased.”
The financial and time resources of your church are sacred blessings. We take that seriously and practice good stewardship of your community.
With over 30 years of organizational development experience, we bring wisdom from previous success and failures to help you achieve goals.
Anyone can mass mail a pledge card. Our best practices grow generosity, increasing annual and capital giving without pressure-based asks.
