Mater Dei Catholic Parish
Established in 2006 by the merging of two parishes in Topeka, Kansas, Mater Dei Parish experienced growing pains as the community learned to balance the needs of two aging churches and a school. This period of growth led to significant debt. After budget restructuring and the sale of unused properties eased some of the financial burden, parish leadership saw the opportunity to conduct a capital campaign to address needs at both churches. A campaign planning study showed that the parish hall, which was not built following a previous campaign, was a top priority. In addition, the capital campaign goals included restoring the bell towers of Assumption Church and creating an endowment to ensure a better financial future for the community. This small community rallied together to raise 174 percent of goal and now the dream of a parish hall will become a reality.
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.
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.View all services offered
