Aquinas Catholic Schools Capital Campaign in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Aquinas Catholic Schools

After merging multiple schools into one school system in 2009, Aquinas Catholic Schools in La Crosse, Wisconsin, found solid financial footing. The schools had no debt and were operating efficiently. This security provided a great opportunity – a capital campaign to raise funds to grow enrollment. ACS partnered with the Steier Group for the Our Next Step Forward Capital Campaign with the goal of funding need-based scholarships, improving the technology framework and making other enhancements to the school system. The Aquinas Catholic Schools community united behind this goal by raising $5 million to grow enrollment.

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.
