Click on the above YouTube video for an overview of the capital campaign process and how the Office of Parish Development can assist your parish through this process.

A capital campaign—a fundraising effort to pay for major new developments, such as new church buildings, expanded community centers, etc.—certainly presents new challenges for any parish. A fundraising campaign can benefit in many ways by using outside, expert fundraising assistance. The Office of Parish Development can create and implement a strategy for your parish including several key steps, such as:

  • Conducting a planning study, which projects fundraising potential and identifies potential opportunities and challenges for the project to come. A planning study provides this feedback as it identifies the right steps to take to maximize the campaign’s effectiveness.

  • Assisting with the planning for a future campaign.

  • Coaching and guiding the capital campaign, especially through its important first few months.

  • Helping to determine how best to carry the campaign to a successful, God-pleasing conclusion.
