At 154 years-old, St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Elkhorn, Nebraska, is both among the oldest parishes and the fastest growing in the Archdiocese of Omaha. Due to its rapid growth, parish leadership realized the need for a new church building and amenities to house the community. Without practical options to expand on its landlocked campus, a donated 12-acre plot of land became the right location for this new expanded church plan, which includes more than doubling the current church and parish hall square footage, and increasing church seating from 682 to 1,400. Though early major gifts created a basis for moving forward with building an entirely new church, there was a gap between the cost of building and the funds raised. The Steier Group was called on to conduct the final phase of the fundraising effort. By partnering together for a tailored and unique campaign, the Growing in Faith Together Capital Campaign raised over $9 million additional funds, exceeding the total project goal of $30 million to completely fund the new church, parish hall and office space while also providing funding for operations and maintenance of the facility.
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.
