What Our Clients Say about CAPITAL VENTURE
The perfect answer for us!
"Starting a capital campaign in the midst of the worst economy our congregation has faced in it history, was a rather daunting task for us. But, with faith and trust in God, we decided to go ahead with our campaign. We had several great assets in addition to our faith: some fantastic volunteers, church leadership that inspired our people, and CAPITAL VENTURE's innovative approach to consulting. Having gone through several capital campaigns in the past, we knew we didn't need a full time consultant for this project, but needed some help to prepare and present our case, and guidance for our volunteer leaders. Working with Linda Lysakowski and CAPITAL VENTURE through their On Demand program, was the perfect answer for us! We had access by phone and email when we needed it, and had some expert guidance on how to strengthen our case. And, to the amazement of some, we achieved a three year pledge total of $409, 096 allowing us to break ground on our Education Wing in August of 2009."

From the first meeting...
"From the first meeting, through our half-dozen phone-a-thons, through the "kick-off" luncheon and up to settlement day Linda and her team were by our side working as hard as we did. While DVGRR would probably have succeeded in reaching our campaign goal without CV's help, it would have taken much longer, and would have cost us a great deal in personal time and a great deal of our donor's money would have gone to campaign expenses instead of the goal."

We would never have been as successful without their diligence...
"CAPITAL VENTURE was an important part of the 1999 capital campaign. We would never have been as successful without their diligence and it was a pleasure working with them... something I cannot say about all consultants."
