Don't Reinvent the Wheel for Church Stewardship Campaign Materials

By Stephen Lee

Churches and their fundraising consultants can save precious time and money on necessary design and printed communication materials for use in their capital, annual or debt relief campaign by leveraging unique semi-designed stewardship campaign communications that are professionally customized for each fundraising effort.

Catalyst Faithworks specializes in designing and printing materials for churches, non-profit ministries and Christian schools who are embarking on a major fundraising campaign. Working alongside professional fundraising strategists who serve their church clients or working directly with the church leadership alone, the firm has created stewardship and capital campaign materials for more than 500 churches, non-profit ministries and Christian schools. They have helped churches of nearly every denomination and independent background raise several hundred millions dollars.

The Kennesaw, GA-based church fundraising communications firm launched in 2001 when founder, Stephen Lee, while working with several large Atlanta church clients, envisioned an easier, more church-centered approach to helping church leadership engage and communicate its story, vision and needs to Catalyst’s designers. Through the use of semi-custom campaign design concepts and sample logo reference.

Knowing that words alone fall short and often lead to a disconnect with designers and the church, Lee knew it would be huge time and budget savings for the leadership to be able explore “visual” campaign design concepts (all seen online) to further help them clarify and express their thoughts as well as offer new ideas. Now, with 300 actual church campaign design concepts, 240 campaign logo design references for ideas, hundreds of completed campaigns from other churche, over 400 campaign titles, suggested campaign material packages, and much more, Catalyst offers its clients everything they need to succeed, all while starting the process with in-advance confidence of what it will look like when printed!

As Lee always says with conviction, “If a picture is worth a thousand words, than exploring campaign design examples in-advance together accomplishes what words cannot, and gives the chuch leadership confident control of the direction and ensures them that graphic design translation of the direction develops into campaign materials that they will be excited about – after all, they have already seen and envision the end product!!

With four suggested communication packages which can be modified to fit any budget, the church gets to choose one of Catalyst’s design concepts (as-is or modified) or a combination of design elements from 300 concepts. Catalyst then provides text samples like brochure copy examples, Q&A examples, pastor letter examples, devotional journal samples, and more to give the church leadership guidance in developing its own unique written content. With their direction, Catalyst creates a campaign logo and incorporates it into the design of every item in the package, along with the church’s approved text content, and where applicable, its unique photos and/or architectural designs. So whether it is a case statement / vision booklet, how-to determine your pledge trifold, Q&A/financial goals sheet, creative ways to give brochure, newletters, prayer devotional guide and bookmark, pledge cards, stationery, Powerpoint shells, and more…Catalyst Faithworks stand ready to deliver proven, fundraising communication solutions to churches and professional fundraising strategist who serve them.
