Fundraising Franchise Offers Churches New Ways To Grow

BURNSVILLE, Minn., Jan. 31, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — Franchise opportunities with a spiritual mission have been rare, if not non-existent up until now. But a groundbreaking franchise offering is now available for the person who yearns to combine a passion for their faith with an entrepreneurial endeavor. The franchise’s focus is fundraising for churches and specifically, helping them to conduct capital campaigns to address major needs. The franchise itself is unique on two levels: it is the first of its kind in the world and it helps churches thrive and grow thanks to the efforts of spiritually and success motivated franchisees.

Franchisees of Walsh & Associates, based in Burnsville, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis and St. Paul,  have the opportunity to build a strong and successful business focused on helping churches raise funds for such things as new buildings, building expansion, renovation, plant maintenance, debt reduction and other critical needs. Yet, in addition to helping churches succeed financially through their capital campaign efforts, “our endeavors also tend to leave the churches we serve stronger both spiritually and socially too,” cites Michael Walsh, President and Founder of Walsh & Associates.

Walsh & Associates has developed a turnkey system that has enabled capital campaigns they conduct for churches to consistently achieve higher levels of success and raise more money relative to church contribution income than other alternatives, according to Walsh. “We not only have been able to achieve remarkable results for churches, but also have developed a way to share our appreciable expertise with our new franchisees. Our franchisees have the opportunity to utilize our carefully honed system to achieve success in their own rights as well as to enjoy tremendous personal satisfaction and success.”

Since Walsh & Associate was founded in 1984, the company has conducted successful capital campaigns for hundreds of churches throughout the United States which resulted in raising hundreds of millions of dollars. On average Walsh & Associates raises over 3.2 times annual church contribution income in our church capital campaigns while other professionally driven campaigns raise only 2.3 times annual church contribution income by comparison. Churches that run their own campaigns typically raise even less: 1.7 times annual contribution income.

“With the current economic climate as a harsh reality,” Walsh points out, “effective, cost efficient fund-raising naturally becomes more necessary than ever for churches. Consequently, we anticipate a strong, consistent demand for our services which is good news for our franchisees.”

Each franchise territory is guaranteed to contain 1,000 larger churches as defined by average annual dollar level of giving at a minimum of $250,000. “Our franchisees will not only benefit from our well-proven system of directing church capital campaigns, but from our ongoing lead generation efforts level as well.” Walsh affirms.
