Testimonials

“This is the second time that my parish and I have participated in a campaign directed by Guidance In Giving, the first being the Diocesan Journey in Faith conducted in 2000. Both campaigns were highly successful for our parish and the Diocese. I commend your firm and would recommend it to any entity seeking direction for their capital campaign.”
Fr. Joseph Pellegrio, Pastor, St. Ignatius of Antioch, Tarpon Springs, FL
“I am happy to report that our campaign has now surpassed the $14.8 million goal making it one of the most successful parish campaigns in the country. To say we were pleased with the results would be an understatement.”
Martin Hernandez, Director of Administration, St. George, Baton Rouge, LA
“I think it speaks for itself that we do not put our capital campaigns out for bid: we automatically call Guidance In Giving. I have recommended them to many other pastors including those in the immediate area. We at Prince of Peace would be happy to visit with any parish leadership considering GIG. They are a gift to the Church in America.”
Fr. John T. Keller, V.F., Pastor, Prince of Peace, Houston
“This was my second opportunity to work with Guidance In Giving. The first was for our 25th Anniversary in which we raised over a million dollars towards building upgrades to our church and paying off our parish debt. This second experience was just as exciting and successful….
The personal contact made a big difference in helping our parishioners understand why their support was so important…The in-pew appeal brought it all home to our parishioners-that it wasn’t only about the amount of the gift that’s important, but about the love and sacrifice that goes into making the gift. You taught us that it’s not the gift that’s important, but the sacrifice in making the gift.”
Fr. Michael Lydon, Pastor, St. Thomas Aquinas, New Port Richey, FL
“Your company’s philosophy of fund-raising along with your knowledge, experience and integrity will be an asset to any church who seeks your help.”
Fr. James A. Ferguson, J.C.L., Pastor, St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, Alexandria, LA
“Our receptions were beautiful events that left our parishioners with smiles on their faces and gratitude in their hearts. Our committees, all organized with the help of Guidance In Giving, were enthusiastic, well informed and effective…Guidance In Giving has created a fundraising program I trust, and would recommend to others without reservation.”
Fr. James C. Hudgins, Pastor, St. Jude, Fredericksburg, VA
“I would like to thank you and your team, your on-site support, and especially for always being available to our Development Office for as-needed strategy discussions during our three-year campaign. It was especially reassuring to have [GIG] only a phone call away.”
Rev. Msgr. Larry Pichard, Pastor, St. Francis of Assisi, Frisco, TX
“A perfect blend of professional know-how, planning, orchestration, inspiration and spirituality; those are the words I would use to describe your firm, Guidance In Giving, and the efforts of your staff in assisting the Diocese of Superior in achieving our $16 million goal.”
Most Reverend Peter F. Christensen, Bishop of Superior, Diocese of Superior
“The Campaign brought people closer together, helped a number of parishioners meet and make new friends, and often made us laugh during the past few months! So our success cannot be measured solely by attaining and superceding a financial goal. I would like to thank you for what your company was able to do for our parish.”
Fr. Nicholas Shori, St. Paul the Aposlte, New Middletown, OH
“One of the aspects that made for a very successful campaign was the close collaboration that the team had not only with the consultative committees, both lay and clergy, but most importantly, with the individual pastors in helping to tailor a parish based campaign to the unique circumstances of each community.”
Msgr. Arthur A. Holquin, Rector/Pastor, Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano
“Your company’s philosophy of fund-raising along with your knowledge, experience and integrity will be an asset to any church who seeks your help.”
Fr. James A. Ferguson, J.C.L., Pastor, St. Francis Xavier Cathedral
