St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Community
St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Community in Minneapolis has been around for more than 100 years and its church and school buildings are nearly as old. The parish had accomplished many initiatives in its strategic plan but knew the time had come to address numerous facility and maintenance issues. The projects weren’t glitzy. But they were the type churches often face, such as replacing a boiler, rebuilding restrooms, repairing brickwork, replacing windows and updating electrical systems. The parish hired the Steier Group to customize a capital campaign to accomplish the projects. The firm knew communication was key because most of the needs were hidden from sight. The Steier Group crafted an effective communications plan and delivered it repeatedly to educate nearly 900 potential donors. The strategy proved effective, with the campaign raising more than $3.1 million toward the parish’s important projects.
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
