We examine the fundamental factors involved in your readiness for a capital campaign. We investigate your organization’s strengths and weaknesses, programs, plans and priorities. We identify the financial and human resources needed before you launch a successful campaign.
Together, we prepare the strategy and timing of the public announcement of the campaign. We identify what you need for supporting communications, train campaign leadership and assist you in learning how to secure lead gifts.
We create a tightly structured campaign program. Each aspect of the program is focused on achieving a stated goal and timeline. The program includes: A specific publicly stated dollar goal, time limit, an intensively organized volunteer apparatus, publicity about your campaign and ideas for enthusiasm –raising activities.
Ongoing communication with donors is critical to your campaign success. The fulfillment goal is 90% of campaign commitments within 36 months from launch.
We engaged the Timothy Group to help us assess our church’s readiness for a stewardship campaign, and received excellent advice and support from Pat and his team throughout the entire process. We successfully raised more than $6,000,000 with The Timothy Group’s assistance. I recommend them strongly and would not hesitate to use them in future campaigns.
The results of the campaign are ultimately in the Lord's hands. Doing our homework, working smarter and not just harder, and taking advantage of the experience of a successful professional like Pat McLaughlin, however, are essential on our side of the equation. His counsel and expertise have been great assets in enabling us to direct an effective capital effort. Having "Coach Pat" directing our team also helped this headmaster sleep a little better at night! May the Lord bless your efforts in whatever campaign you undertake to advance His kingdom!
The Timothy Group does an incredible job of providing the guidance needed in any capital campaign. They had a quick follow-up and follow-through. Their wisdom and counsel have been invaluable to NORTH Church! I would highly recommend them to anyone taking on the great endeavor of a campaign.
