"Thank you all for helping me succeed in a task which is not a natural part of my skill set." Reverend Monsignor Donald M. Hanson
"As we stuck to the schedule of events you constructed for us, I began to realize the amount of work that takes place behind the scene out of the sight of the parish." Reverend Edward Heintzelman
When any institution begins to consider a major fundraising endeavor, it is common for the leadership to contemplate conducting the appeal "in house". While the administration and leadership are well intentioned, their tendency is to underestimate the work involved with conducting such a campaign. All too often our clients, especially those who considered an "in house" campaign effort, will share how grateful they are that they were not on this journey alone.
As you consider your fundraising endeavor, keep in mind that in order to be successful you want to "Ask once and ask well!" This is and always has been an internal motto of our staff. You want to provide a strong first impression to your supporters that you are ready to deliver the plans which are before you and their investment in the future will be successful.
