Diocese of Grand Rapids

The Diocese of Grand Rapids in Michigan partnered with the Steier Group for a diocesan-wide capital campaign to support seminarian education and priest retirement. Upon his installation in 2013, Most Rev. David J. Walkowiak, Bishop of Grand Rapids, made vocations a top priority for the diocese. These efforts have proven fruitful, leading to additional seminarians. But funds for seminarian education were nearly out. That meant a capital campaign was needed to create an endowment to support seminarian education far into the future. Despite the pandemic delaying fundraising, the Diocese of Grand Rapids found success, raising more than $35 million and exceeding the Steier Group’s projection.

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.
