Diocese of Evansville
After recent parish reorganization and mergers, the Diocese of Evansville in Indiana looked to a capital campaign to help bring the community together. It was the first diocesan-wide fundraising effort in the nearly 75-year history of the diocese. Goals included parish needs, seminarian education, support for priests and faith formation programs. To energize the community, the Bishop of Evansville visited each of the 45 parishes for town hall meetings to inform parishioners about the campaign. In addition, the diocese engaged a lay leadership group that had strong connections to the local business community. This helped construct a major gift pool for the diocese. Members of the community expressed gratitude at having a Catholic cause to support in addition to their own parish. All of these factors combined to bring the community together for a successful capital campaign.
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.
