Looking for expert, Christ-centered fundraising strategies?

It can be challenging to create high-impact fundraising strategies to make a difference at your organization – all while still glorifying God through your ministry or Christian non-profit.

Church Strategy

Fundraising wasn’t a part of your pastoral training. Even though you know God is able to provide, it’s hard to know how to effectively raise money for your church.

Non-profit Strategy

Even though your nonprofit or ministry is working hard being the hands and feet of Christ, it can be hard to get the funding you need to make an impact.

They also helped us frame our mission in a way that produces excitement and commitment among our supporters. Even after our formal partnership ended, we’ve enjoyed staying in touch and occasionally exploring ideas and strategies that compliment it. It was a pleasure and a blessing to work with [Nick and Cherian] Slingshot Consultants.

Mark JohnsonTreasurer | Controller, Regular Baptist Ministries

For our stewardship campaign for a church plant and a facilities remodel, Slingshot Consultants was invaluable. Before we officially started the campaign, they helped us articulate our highest goal: not money, but unity in the church and keeping our church's mission squarely in view. When we found ourselves worried about the details of the campaign, Slingshot was a calming influence in several ways: being calm themselves, reminding us of our goals, and providing frequent insights and course corrections. The campaign "playbook" they provided enabled our volunteer teams to perform their work effectively. We appreciated the emphasis on participation throughout the congregation. And in the end, not only did our unity as a church strengthen, but we had a high percentage of members pledging to the campaign, and we even exceeded our financial goal. We highly recommend Slingshot Consultants.

Slingshot Consultants has been integral in shepherding us through our Vision Campaign process. Their Slingshot team brings not only wisdom-filled expertise working with churches, ministries, and Christian schools on capital and vision campaigns, but they also bring their authentic faith in Jesus to the table. I specifically appreciate the pastoral care as we venture into deeper relationships with our donors and champions- the breadth and depth we've never had before.
