We had a great experience with Klote and Associates. We spent a great deal of time selecting our campaign consultant. We interviewed many companies, several consultants and I personally conducted a dozen reference checks. We selected Klote for their full time and on-site consulting, their fit with our team, experience, thorough Feasibility Study and focus groups, every member visitation and potential to maximize our fundraising. Our campaign goals were not glamorous items; we needed to retire debt, fix infrastructure, build endowments and secure our future building and programs costs for future years. With Klote we raised well over 3 times our annual giving. We also visited nearly every family in the church, an emphasis of Klote’s method, and one that has yielded connectional benefits. We have put the church in a strong financial footing for its future and are glad we selected Klote.
I also greatly appreciated the consultant in particular. His wisdom, knowledge, organizational skills, outstanding training of our volunteers, fit with our congregation, good sense of humor and ability to keep us grounded and motivated made him a terrific part of the team. We are grateful for his ministry among us.
