Church of Saint Agnes and Saint Agnes School
The Catholic community of Church of Saint Agnes and Saint Agnes School in Saint Paul, Minnesota, was eager to welcome the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, to teach at the school. But its 64-year-old convent needed to be updated, modernized and renovated to better serve the needs of these sisters. That was the main focus of the Faith & Tradition Capital Campaign. Additional goals were making electrical improvements in the church and school, repairing a staircase, replacing the parking lot, and adding a preschool to the school. Donor fatigue was a concern, following a recently completed, successful campaign. To combat this, campaign leadership used a matching gift challenge to encourage donors to contribute at a greater level. Also, a segmented direct mail campaign led to active support from the school’s alumni. These creative techniques led to a successful campaign and will allow the Saint Agnes community to welcome the Dominican order to campus.
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.
