A capital campaign is a full time effort for 10-20+ weeks, depending on the size of the parish. Pastors, parish staff and volunteers are already very busy with their own jobs. They rarely have the time, knowledge and will to conduct a thorough campaign on their own. While there are cases where the staff and volunteers have run a capital campaign, they usually raise far less than the potential from the parish community.
Guidance In Giving, Inc., has over 35 years of experience in the field of Catholic Development. By providing service solely to Catholic parishes, dioceses and schools nationwide, we are able to specialize our services to fit the specific needs of the modern-day Catholic community. We truly love what we do and consider our service a ministry to the Mission of the Church. Guidance In Giving, Inc. has designed a campaign plan, rooted in Stewardship, that encourages parishioners to share their time, talent and treasure. This plan provides each family with the opportunity to respond to the needs of their community. Throughout the campaign, every parishioner is encouraged to volunteer their time through attendance at campaign receptions and by praying for the campaign; their talents through volunteering for the campaign; and their treasure by prayerfully considering a pledge of financial support to the best of their ability. By giving parishioners the opportunity to become stewards of the campaign, our plan allows parishioners to take ownership in the effort of their parish, which allows for the community to raise the maximum amount of participation and funds.
