St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana, has experienced strong growth since its establishment three decades ago. The parish had planned to enhance and repair its worship space. But families with young children and changing demographics led to school expansion instead. With that work accomplished, the parish turned its attention to the church’s future. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton hired the Steier Group to customize a capital campaign to address parish debt. The debt had accumulated due to the congregation establishing a new parish in a booming area and the faith community’s phenomenal growth. Other campaign goals included repairing the church roof, sidewalks and gutters, and addressing an aging HVAC system. The successful One Family Rooted in Christ Capital Campaign raised more than $2.7 million in gifts and pledges, positioning the parish for a strong future.
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
