Diocesan Database Experts
Whether your diocese is looking to implement a new donor management system, clean-up your existing database or just find a better way to sync parish records with your diocesan database, PSG can help.
PSG is home to many of the country’s leading experts in Blackbaud Raiser’s Edge and Virtuous CRM software.
And we’ve worked hand-in-hand to help diocesan offices integrate with many of the leading parish management solutions including ParishSoft, PDS, Ministry Platform, GabrielSoft, eCatholic, GiveCentral, and more.
Full-service Database Administration
Finding a full-time employee who lives in your area, knows Raiser’s Edge and understands fundraising in the Catholic church is difficult. Finding that person AND being able to hire them at a diocesan salary? It’s nearly impossible.

- Providing database assistance to support the diocesan annual appeal and capital campaigns
- Ongoing database clean up and maintenance
- Building queries, pulling lists and generating reports for the development and finance offices
- Building parish dashboards and automating reports, where possible
- Helping to reconcile the donor database with the finance office on a monthly basis
- Managing the diocese’s relationship with third-party vendors including data entry, lockbox and mail house services
- Creating and maintaining online donation pages
- Processing online gifts
- Creating pledge reminders and notices for the mail house to print and send
- Developing systems and procedures to sync parish rosters with the diocesan database
- Other duties unique to each diocese
It starts with better data
PSG partners with Diocese of Nashville to design and implement their Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Ministries. In addition to guiding overall strategy and designing all print and digital materials, PSG also provides hands-on, day-to-day management of their Raiser’s Edge database.
This comprehensive solution has helped the diocese take a major leap forward with their appeal, including helping them to add more than 6,000 active households and 10,000 emails to the diocesan database. Better data, combined with a smart fundraising strategy, has allowed the diocese to add more than 600 recurring donors to their appeal this past year – worth more than an estimated $320,000 per year.
- Newly added households
- Newly added emails
- Annual recurring donors
- Value of recurring donors
- Online donors who make a recurring gift
“Our diocesan development office took a major leap forward when we partnered with Prenger Solutions Group. With PSG’s help, we’re actually using our data to run a more sophisticated appeal. Their whole team is incredible, and I recommend them every chance I get.”
