Before you make a decision about a capital campaign you need to know if a limited partnership is for you. If you are thinking about a potential capital campaign in 2017 you are probably considering one of two options. First, you are wondering if you even need a stewardship firm. I mean honestly, most are not cheap at all. Convincing a team of laypeople to pay someone to help you raise funds is difficult. The number one reason most churches give for doing their own campaign is to avoid the cost of paying some firm. Yet studies show that if a church goes it alone they will raise less than if they used a partner.
What if price was not an issue? What if you could get the help you need for a few hundred dollars? Would that make a difference? My program, The Online Campaign is less than $500! Check it out here at The Online Campaign This program gives you all the personalized support you need without paying the exorbitant fees most firms charge.
How can I provide help for a mere fraction of the cost? It is all online and through email and telephone contact. You get the expertise of one of the industries most seasoned veterans without paying an arm and a leg for the help.
What churches should think about a limited partnership? Frankly this program will not suit everyone all the time. There are instances where a church needs more of what we provide not less. However here are some situations where The Online Campaign is an exact fit.
Emerging churches with under 250 in attendance. Frankly churches of this size cannot afford the fees most firms charge. Yet they need help so we are here for them!
Churches with budgets of less than $500K. It doesn’t make sense to have a firm charge you 5% or 10% of your annual budget when your budget is already stressed.
Churches that have done multiple campaigns. If you have just about every firms manual on your shelf you need simply the basics and a safety net knowing someone is there to lead and direct you.
Churches that need to raise less than 50% of their annual budgets. Even churches with large budgets can benefit from this service.
Churches that have leadership that simply cannot see the value of hiring an outside firm. I recently finished a successful campaign with a church whose leadership said no to any firm helping them. The price point of my program was a huge selling point for them to agree to allow me to consult them from a distance. They got the help the needed for a price they could afford. You can get the same help.
We at The Charis Group are the leaders in providing churches with exactly what they need for a price they can afford! Contact us today!
