I want to commend James D. Klote & Associates on the efforts and leadership of your organization.
Our JDK&A consultant did a masterful job in guiding, leading, shepherding and encouraging the many members of our Church who participated in the Campaign by making visitations and “telling our story”. Our Consultant clearly explained what we were each to do and how to do it. Unfortunately, a few of us thought we could do it better by doing it “out way” only to discover that we not only diminished the experience of some of our parishioners for a significant gift but also reduced the level of giving of the Campaign from its real potential.
The upside is that most of us did exactly what he outlined for us to do and the Campaign succeeded in spite of ourselves. I would highly recommend James D. Klote & Associates to advise other churches in their Capital Campaign efforts.
