Explore the differences and strengths of Impact Stewardship that can help you achieve capital campaign success.
The magnitude of your church 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 Sets Us Apart
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
