Newman Catholic School

With a vision of serving the community for the next 60 years and beyond, Newman Catholic School of Mason City, Iowa, began planning for continued success of the school. Newman Catholic is a Blue Ribbon School and ranks among the top private high schools in Iowa. Some important keys to maintaining such a successful record include creating an environment that is conducive to educating students well, and attracting the talent to instruct those students effectively.

Newman Catholic is a school that thrives on involvement from an invested community, so implementing a capital campaign that respects and enhances this was crucial for success. The Steier Group helped Newman Catholic identify the goals for a strong capital campaign. Top of mind was enhancing the endowment for both hiring and retaining top educators, as well as enhancing tuition assistance to provide the opportunity for all students to benefit from a top education. Additionally, there was a goal to upgrade facilities, increase security and safety and repair the sacristy, wood paneling and roof. This campaign exceeded the Steier Group’s projections, raising 230% of the goal.

“The results of our campaign speak for themselves and speak highly for the Steier Group. We received three of the largest gifts in our history and far surpassed even the most optimistic projections. So much of the credit goes to the Steier Group team for coaching us through the process and putting us in a position to succeed. As we continue our pledge period, we are comforted to know that the Steier Group team is only a phone call or an email away.”

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.
