Fundraising Feasibility & Planning Studies

Having us conduct a Fundraising Feasibility & Planning Study is the optional and often recommended first step to building your most successful church capital campaign possible. Without a large investment in time or money, a study offers a way for you to measure your church members’ views about your proposed project and campaign. The information provided offers us, as your campaign professionals, guidance for building a set of campaign recommendations. The result is an informed, expert plan on how best to organize and operate your campaign so it will be successful in meeting your church’s needs.

See the many church capital campaigns that were helped in their success because of the pre-campaign feasibility and planning studies we directed. Feasibility studies are a great first step toward success in your church capital fundraising plan.

Client Testimonials

Our Faith, Our Future: Taking the Next Step campaign was a success. The feasibility study was an essential dynamic that gave us confidence to move forward in faith. Your team’s analysis and confidence that we could raise one million dollars was right on target. You promised and it happened! Our pledges now total $1.3 million. We thank God for such success and are elated that we can be debt free because of this three-year capital campaign.”

Rev. Grady King, Pastor, Mansfield Church of Christ, Mansfield, Texas

“Initially, we were apprehensive about the amount of funding needed to be raised as well as the work to be done in such a short period of time. As Senior Pastor, I wanted to be sure we had the resources and expertise to launch this initiative with success. We hired Walsh & Associates to conduct our Feasibility Study, and with Walsh’s recommendation, moved forward with our campaign to build a Christian Life Center. Our campaign director was knowledgeable and committed to our success. I know we were able to optimize our results because of the experience and proven track record of Walsh & Associates.”

Rev. Dr. William A. Lewis, Community Presbyterian Church, Celebration, Florida
Expanding His Reach – Building on the Cornerstone campaign

“Our consultant from Walsh was extremely helpful in conducting the feasibility study and getting our campaign organized and running full speed. She was always willing to listen to any issues or ideas on how the campaign might need to be tweaked for our church’s needs. She showed respect towards everyone on the committee and had flexibility when needed. I would highly recommend the Walsh & Associates team to any church looking to do a large fundraising campaign!”

Michelle Maier, Advanced Gifts Chair, Trinity Lutheran Church, Detroit Lakes, Minnesota
Better Together, Expanding Our Capacity to Serve

“We chose to hire Walsh & Associates to run our capital campaign based on their success rate and the quality of their program. Less than a year later, we couldn’t be happier! Their feasibility study was spot on and helped us plan our campaign as well as our budget for our remodeling project. The quality of the marketing materials (video, brochure, and mailings) was second to none. The staff and marketing department were willing to work with us to incorporate some of our own video and photos into the materials, which was above and beyond. The campaign schedule seemed intense at first glance, but it was hugely successful. It was very well thought out in terms of content and timing. We overshot our goal and the spirit of cooperation at the parish is at an all-time high. Our campaign was very successful, and I would highly recommend Walsh & Associates!’

Martha Cucco, Advanced Gifts Chair, St. Francis de Sales Parish, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
Lighting the Way to the Future campaign

“For the past two years, St Peter’s Catholic Church has been anticipating a capital campaign for the renovation needs of our current 100-year-old church. After interviewing several companies, we decided on Walsh & Associates. Your feasibility study determined that our parish could raise $2 million in pledges over three years. We decided to add an additional $1 million challenge goal for additional renovations at our high school. My announcement to the parish on “Celebration Weekend” informing our parishioners that we had secured pledges of over $2 million met with applause at every weekend Mass! To date our pledges are over $2.5 million!”

Rev. Gregory Hite, Pastor, St. Peter’s Parish, Mansfield, Ohio

Walsh & Associates conducted a feasibility study to gauge the successfulness of a campaign, minimum and challenge goal for pledges, and instituted a step-by-step process which led to a very successful endeavor.  This was our 3rd fundraising campaign for this parish and by far the most successful.  Their enthusiasm and concern for our parish was contagious.  They were much more in-depth than others we had used in the past. I would rate it excellent.”
