We’ve had the pleasure of partnering with hundreds of dioceses and parishes across North America. Our favorite part of the job is getting to know the people and the missions behind the ministries, and our personal relationships help guide us to the right solution, every time.
We have helped more than 300 parishes and dioceses in the US and Canada
It starts with better data
We partnered with the Diocese of Nashville to modernize their annual Bishop’s appeal. In addition to guiding the overall strategy and designing all print and digital pieces, PSG also provides hands-on, day-to-day management of the client’s Raiser’s Edge database.
This comprehensive solution helped the diocese take a major leap forward with their appeal. We added more than 6,000 active households and 10,000 emails to the diocesan database. Better data combined with a smart fundraising strategy allowed the diocese to add more than 400 recurring donors to their appeal this past year — worth more than $320,000 per year.

“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.”

A modern approach to offertory enhancement
In partnership with the Archdiocese of Denver, we pioneered a new approach to offertory enhancement. First, we clean up a parish’s database, add emails and phone numbers, and dramatically increase the parish’s social media engagement. Then, we survey families to learn why they support the parish. Based on what we learn in our survey, we design a highly personalized approach that invites families to increase their support and move from paper checks to recurring, online giving. Our Lady of the Valley in Windsor, Colorado increased offertory by more than $385,000 in the 12 months following our program.
- Average Increase in Offertory 28% 28%
- Average Increase in giving from donors who moved online 35% 35%
- Average increase in social media reach
Online giving leads to increased giving
The Diocese of Phoenix already ran a pretty great annual appeal. But they turned to PSG to help make it even better. And the timing couldn’t have been better for them to invest in data-driven fundraising powered by a smart approach to digital communications and online giving.
When Covid changed the fundraising landscape, the Diocese and PSG were ready. By promoting online giving through direct mail, personalized donation pages, automated email campaigns and a smart social media strategy, the diocese was able to exceed its goal and fund critical ministries across the diocese.
- Average increase in gift amount when donor moves giving online 24% 24%
- Percentage of donors who increased their giving to the appeal 52% 52%
- Percentage increase in funds raised for online gala event
“Prenger Solutions Group is helping us modernize our entire fundraising program. They’re amazing. Everyone loves them – from our database administrator to our annual appeal director to our Vicar General. They are the perfect fit for any diocese looking to improve their fundraising results.”
