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 institutions, but so many organizations continue to rely on stale, overused and ineffective fundraising methods from the past. Our approach is a proven, innovative system that speeds up your ability to raise major gifts based on the fundraising realities of the 21st century, 


In these unprecedented, dynamic times it is more important than ever for Christian institutions to consider fresh, innovative approaches to operational viability and financial sustainability to advance their mission. Now organizations need to embrace the leading best practices for institutional 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.

Our Exclusive, Cost Saving Business Services


Institutional health is THE prerequisite to gaining donor confidence.


We foster your performance through targeted Capacity Building to enhance operations to improve financial strength... strength that comes from minding BOTH the revenue and expense elements of financial operations. 


We offer affordable assessment and planning services, and provide integrated solutions to inter-related institutional challenges while ensuring you stay true to your mission! 


All too often, CFO’s have trimmed expenses for years until there is no more room to cut. Instead, we want to empower institutions to attract more dollars and more donors and make the best stewardship decisions by rapidly growing revenue while containing expenses.
