St Mary of Vernon Catholic Church
St Mary of Vernon’s vibrant Catholic community has been ministering to Vernon Hills for over 44 years. Their commitment remained the same, but their facilities needed renovations and maintenance to fully support their mission. To address their needs, the parish developed an exciting multi-year plan. It also would provide valuable interim funding for program and personnel needs. Taking a multi-year approach would provide the time needed to bring their annual offering income up to a level where they could readily afford the personnel needed on an ongoing basis through their annual church operations budget.
To achieve their plans, they hired us to guide their For Our Future capital campaign. The community answered the call and exceeded their campaign goal!
“Recognizing that churches are different from other non-profits, we selected Walsh & Associates specifically because of their experience working with other churches. We would recommend Walsh & Associates to any church looking to run a capital campaign… With the assistance of Walsh & Associates, St. Mary of Vernon was able to run a successful Feasibility Study and Capital Campaign… we were very pleased to exceed our goal.”
– Rev. Ignatius Anaele
” Walsh & Associates was a positive driving force in helping us reach our goal. They are very professional and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend this company to any church with a goal of raising maximum funds to support the growth and needs of the parish.”

Helping Churches Reach New Heights in their Capital Campaigns
Our mission is to be great stewards, to live up to the Parable of Talents and to bring out the best in those we serve. Our consistent and proven-to-be-successful approach to directing church capital campaigns helps assure this. We just work with churches, only do capital campaigns and ground them in prayer, scripture and sound stewardship teachings. Then we combine this with practical, proven-to-be-most-productive operating methods. This not only assures you of getting the best results and best return on your capital campaign investment financially, but also, that your church will grow spiritually and in community and will be more equipped and excited than ever about doing God’s will through the works of your church.
