Gregory S. Jeffrey is a development consultant serving Catholic organizations throughout the United States. Now in his 25th year, Mr. Jeffrey has mentored scores of pastors, presidents, and development staffers, as well as consultants new to the development profession. His advice is rooted in experience gained through 3,500 major gift solicitation calls and funding initiatives totaling over $100M.
Mr. Jeffrey's education clients have built schools, renovated labs, stabilized enrollment, established scholarships, found new sources of funding, and discovered major gift prospects they never knew were 'sleeping' in their database. Parish clients have restored churches to their historic beauty, added new facilities, and retired debt. In each case, they did it in a way that reached out to those on the margins of parish life, prompting wider involvement and a greater sense of parish unity.
Having seen what's possible, Mr.Jeffrey concludes,
"There is no shortage of money for Catholic causes, only a shortage of people willing and prepared to ask."
