Capacity Building Faith-based

Our Accelerated, Donor-Driven Fundraising Services 


Over the past 60 years individuals, churches, and businesses have changed the way they support Christian schools and ministries, but so many of these organizations continue to rely on stale, overused, and ineffective fundraising methods from the past. Our approach is a proven, innovative process that speeds up your ability to raise major gifts based on the fundraising realities of these dynamic times. 


It is more important than ever for Christian organizations to consider fresh approaches to operational viability and financial sustainability to advance their mission. Now organizations need to embrace the leading best practices for operational performance that bring revenue and expenses into the same stewardship conversations through an integrated management model.


This is exactly what we help Christian organizations do, in a way that is affordable and focuses on creating a successful, in-house development function so that there is no longer a dependency on outside consultants... let us show you how to thrive and prosper on your own even if you have NO development staff.
