St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church
The St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church community had ambitious plans for a capital campaign to construct a new, permanent church campus. The first phase of the plan called for holding Masses in a temporary building until the parish could pay for and build a new church. Church leaders moved forward with the campaign using the parish’s own internal resources. Although this self-run capital campaign found initial success, it quickly stalled. St. Philip’s leadership realized they needed to re-ignite the campaign to reach their initial goal and begin the project. Recognizing that the final push required professional guidance, St. Philip hired the Steier Group for a campaign assessment. Through this assessment, construction plans shifted, focusing on building part of the church in the first phase. Parish leadership and the Steier Group customized a plan to make the final stretch of the campaign attractive to both those who had already given and new donors. A matching gift served as the focal point of this final campaign push. In the end, the parish rallied behind this final effort and will now celebrate Mass in a new church building.
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.

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
