“We consistently raise 1/3 more than the church fundraising industry average and at the lowest cost-per–dollar raised compared to all U.S. church fundraising companies.” Michael Walsh reports. “Our system works!”
Burnsville, MN (PRWEB) October 13, 2011
Walsh & Associates, one of the premier companies in the U.S. that specializes in fundraising for churches, has announced the launch of a ground-breaking franchise offering – the first of its kind. Never before have church fundraising franchises been available anywhere in the world.
“Fundraising, specifically for churches, has been our specialty for 20 years,” Michael Walsh, founder and president of Walsh & Associates explains. “We have developed a turnkey system that has consistently enabled our capital campaigns for churches to consistently achieve higher levels of success and raise more money relative to church income than all other alternatives.
“We not only have been able to achieve remarkable fundraising results for churches, but also have developed a way to share our appreciable expertise with our new franchisees. Our franchisees will have the opportunity to utilize our carefully honed system to achieve success in their own rights.”
Since Walsh & Associate was founded, the company has conducted successful capital campaigns for hundreds of Catholic churches throughout the United States which resulted in raising hundreds of millions of dollars. On average Walsh & Associates raises over 3.2 times annual church contribution income in our church capital campaigns while other professionally driven campaigns raise only 2.3 times annual church contribution income by comparison. Churches that run their own campaigns typically raise even less: 1.7 times annual contribution income.
“The system we have created and improved over the years, works effectively and efficiently,” Walsh declares. “The Walsh approach also yields the most impressive financial results. Because of this, we have earned a stellar reputation among churches across the country and our franchisees will benefit from the opportunity to use our well-established, highly regarded system and name.”
Each franchise territory is guaranteed to contain 1,000 larger churches as defined by average annual dollar level of giving at a minimum of $250,000. Traditionally, it is these churches that are most likely to hire professionals to run their fundraising capital campaigns.
Walsh points out that not only does their newly franchised system consistently raise over 3.2 times a church’s income during a fundraising campaign, it achieves this high level of giving for the lowest possible cost. “Our ability to consistently raise nearly a third more than the church fundraising industry average is, at the same time, achieved at the lowest cost-per–dollar raised compared to all U.S. companies who work regularly with churches. In fact, the cost per dollar raised in all our church campaigns has averaged less than three-and-a-half cents, which is extremely cost effective. We’re incredibly proud of those two facts,” Walsh points out. “We not only raise the most money, but we do it at the lowest possible cost.
“Our franchisees will not only benefit from our well-proven system, but from our on-going lead generation efforts at the corporate level as well. Franchisees will go through a maximum six-phase training program and receive four in-depth operations manuals which delineate our groundbreaking, proven system for establishing and operating the business, as well as selling and conducting campaigns. “Our franchisees learn how to conduct a capital campaign step-by-step from start to finish. Nothing is left out including templates and marketing materials. Not only that, but our own software is available as well,” Walsh revealed. “We have put everything in place that will benefit franchisees and maintain and sustain our position in the industry as the company that raises the most money for churches at the lowest cost per dollar raised. Our track record is compelling and as a result, our franchisees will be warmly welcomed by churches that want and need our help.
“With the current economic climate as a harsh reality,” Walsh points out, “effective, cost efficient fund raising naturally becomes more necessary than ever for churches. We anticipate strong, consistent demand for our services.”
