Capital Campaign

Distinctions

Explore the differences and strengths of Impact Stewardship that can help you achieve capital campaign success.

Team Approach

The magnitude of your capital campaign is too much to entrust to a solitary individual. We see the danger of asking one individual to handle all the internal responsibilities necessary for capital campaign success, especially if those responsibilities fall out of their natural/learned skill sets. Therefore, we utilize the combined skill sets of a team approach, which our clients and consultants find extremely effective.

What we can help you achieve
  1. Increased strategic points of contact and support
  2. Additional time on-site for motivation, guidance, and direction
  3. Heightened level of consulting and subject matter expertise
  4. Extra attention to detail and more time for church leadership and staff

What Sets Us Apart

Performance Gurantee

We will exceed a certain level of results or you will receive a significant reduction in fee. Since 1999, Impact Stewardship has been the only church capital campaign consulting firm to offer this guarantee.

Results

Our track record far exceeds church capital campaign industry averages and includes numerous construction, renovation and debt reduction projects. Impact Stewardship has helped raise over $1 billion dollars for ministry since 1999. Our church partners consistently report better results using programs developed with Impact compared to alternate campaign plans.

On-Site Consulting

Impact Stewardship consistently offers more personal attention to detail than any other organization in our industry. Our experience affirms that a direct correlation exists between church capital campaign success and consultant interaction with church campaign leadership.

Prayer-Centered Campaigns

Church capital campaigns must function quite differently than secular or institutional fundraising. Most secular programs rely on pressure and outside support. By contrast, church-oriented support campaigns must center on prayer and communication within the church family. This philosophy forms the cornerstone of every Impact Stewardship campaign.

Biblical Emphasis

Impact's capital stewardship campaign model is rooted in Biblical principles that are clearly articulated and consistently taught to the church body. Every campaign designed by Impact encourages obedience to the Father as shown in scripture, an attitude we have seen Him bless time and time again.

Donor Communication

Every opportunity is given to inform and involve potential donors in a variety of prayer-based, non-intrusive, non-pressure strategies to communicate the need and gain support for the project and correlating capital stewardship campaign.

Creative Giving Education

Our expertise in tax-wise giving enables our partner churches and ministries to maximize their giving potential toward their capital stewardship program. Impact emphasizes creative ways that church members can give to support the church, while enjoying personal tax benefits.

Legacy Planning

For years, Impact has focused on legacy giving as a vital element within our overall program. By initiating this strategy to work in conjunction with capital campaign activity, churches often see campaign gifts in the short-term that lead to long-term legacy gifts through estate planning and wills.
