Introducing Core Capital Campaigns – Continuing God-centered consulting to Episcopal faith communities

Core Capital Campaigns
Posted Mar 9, 2020

Three experienced church consultants have formed a new partnership to provide fundraising services no longer offered by the Episcopal Church Foundation.

Linda Buskirk, Leslie Pendleton and Maurice Seaton joined together in January 2020 as Core Capital Campaigns, offering a proven methodology for successful, faith-focused capital campaigns to fund a congregation’s vision. The three partners issued this statement:

“We are excited to offer our consulting services as a supportive team. CORE Capital Campaigns will allow us to share our individual gifts and experience with clients and give us the opportunity to collaborate and innovate together, to better respond to the needs of a changing church.

“We understand the challenges of discerning a path forward, and we know from experience that every faith community can be transformed by a shared, hope-filled vision that emerges through the process of a successful capital campaign.

“We have witnessed God’s presence stirring faith in communities as they explore their communal purpose and respond to God’s call. We provide customized strategies, professional training, fundraising tools and prayerful encouragement to take the bold steps needed to realize that vision.

“Whatever challenges you face, whether changing demographics, lack of vision, diminishing pledges, or fear of failure, one constant remains: God loves us and the Spirit equips us to dream big and do great things in service to our parish family and the wider community.”

“Where is God calling you today? We want to hear your story. We can offer perspective and discuss how our strategic, spirit-centered approach can guide you in funding your vision.”
