Over the course of five months, Don helped us to raise over 1 million for a capital appeal that included a facelift for our fellowship hall, kitchen, debt retirement and several smaller projects.Don provided a detailed timeline of events and needs as well as detailed job descriptions for the various leaders and volunteers needed. We found Don's experience as both pastor and fundraising consultant to be a winning combination that helped us win the confidence and enthusiasm of our congregation who found Don to be wonderfully personable. Indeed, we found him to be much more than simply a consultant; he became a "pastor" and "shepherd" and "friend" to us. By the end of our campaign, Don was truly part of our Faith Family. Truly his wisdom and confidence helped us believe we'd succeed. —Pastor Dan Hansen
I wanted to send a note to let you know how much weappreciate the professional help you provided and the relationship we developedwith you during our recent “20/20 FAITH” Capital Fund Appeal. I can’t imagine how we could haveaccomplished so much without you.
With your help, we avoided spending considerable timedebating how to organize and run a campaign among ourselves. The template, job descriptions,organizational charts and timelines you provided for how to structure thecampaign allowed us to get moving quickly and efficiently. We were able to recruit people from thecongregation to help with the campaign because they knew specifically whatwould be required of them. They wereable to get moving more quickly and enthusiastically because they could see howwhat they were doing dovetailed with the efforts of others in the overallplan. The trust level of potentialdonors increased because they saw a well thought out, well organized andtastefully conducted appeal. All ofthose things proved to be significant.
We also appreciated your constant availability, guidanceand encouragement. Your frequentvisits were well timed and helpful. No-one felt adrift or indecisive about what to do or expect. —Bob Reed
