Testimonial

“Stewardship is paramount to the success of a major capital campaign, and Walsh’s approach touched on every single stewardship pillar! Under your guidance, we were able to build ownership and excitement into our parishioners, from the youngest to the oldest and almost everyone in between. It was a pleasure to watch the transformation from skeptic to supporter in many cases, and I was so excited to announce that we were able to raise more than our challenge goal! This would not have been possible without our consultant’s guidance and skill in keeping us focused. I would not hesitate to contract your services in the future, and strongly recommend Walsh for any parish preparing to launch a capital campaign.” - Gail Nampel, Advanced Gifts Co-Chair

Testimonial

“Choosing a company to oversee and guide our campaign was key. Having an expert is important as most members in the parish work and cannot dedicate total time to campaign work. Walsh was an asset to our campaign and fit our parish well.”
