Fundraising for Christian Schools & Ministries!

Christian Higher Education, Inc. is a non-profit consulting firm specializing in assisting faith-based organizations in donor-driven fundraising that focuses on what they want FOR the donor... not FROM the donor.


We are part of IOD's professional services practice which is a unique team of specialists providing analysis, insight, and solutions to capacity-building challenges since 1986.


We have a proven track record in showing Christian schools and ministries how to achieve more savings for more mission, and all without having ANY development staff!

Our Approach IS Unique!

We are led by John Curtis, Ph.D., President and Founding Partner and David Sayers, MBA, MAcc, Director of Financial Services. We implement the best practices in affordable fundraising, sound organizational principles, and innovative operational strategies resulting in measurable improvements in performance and outcomes with Christian organizations nationwide.

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.

Our Exclusive, Cost Saving Financial 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.
