St. Paul Catholic Church and School
St. Paul Catholic Church and School provide vital ministries in the Eugene, Oregon, community. St. Paul school, for example, is the only parish school in the Eugene-Springfield area, serving nearly 300 students. St. Paul’s leadership recognized the importance of keeping the church and school strong for future generations, so they worked with an architecture firm on a new master plan that would meet the facility needs of the parish for the next five decades. The parish hired the Steier Group for a capital campaign to address much-needed projects including a new school activity center featuring a gym, an elevated stage and auditorium seating for 480. The parish also planned accessibility improvements at the church. The Steier Group and campaign leadership examined the giving history of each prospective donor during the preparation phase. That review enabled the Steier Group to establish specific gift request amounts for all prospects. The Steier Group’s strategy allowed for a personal approach to major gift fundraising by using volunteer involvement, personal visits and specific pledge requests to maximize the parish’s ability to attract support from major donors. The A Voyage into the Future Capital Campaign raised $2.5 million toward the parish’s important goals.
The Steier Group’s unique, hands-on campaign management model, combined with our world-class grant writers and creative fundraising strategies, allowed us to exceed goal.
A Customized Approach
We founded our firm on the belief that the best capital campaign is one that is customized and executed by one team, under one roof. When you hire the Steier Group, you eliminate the need to contract with additional vendors for services like copywriting, graphic design, grant writing, video production, website development or wealth screening. We reject the one-size-fits-all approach to fundraising and embrace every opportunity to design a capital campaign plan that will maximize our client’s fundraising potential.View all services offered
