Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church and School
For nearly a century, Catholic education has been a core ministry for Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Ottawa, Ohio. That ministry faced a major challenge when flooding damaged a parish school building that housed kindergarten through second grade. Four classrooms in the basement were deemed uninhabitable. Also, the building needed significant renovations to bring it up to code and to meet accessibility and education standards. The parish began looking for solutions. The church chose to partner with the Steier Group on a capital campaign to construct an eight-classroom addition. The addition would allow students and faculty to work under one roof, providing a safe, secure environment and efficient school operation. The Steier Group’s campaign preparation included developing a communications plan, recruiting campaign leadership and evaluating donors. The firm reviewed available giving records to establish specific gift request amounts for all prospects, ranging from $100 to $125,000. This personalized approach helped the parish raise more than $3.5 million toward constructing an addition that will serve students for decades to come.
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
