Corfield Consulting Services






Since our emergence back into the Christian School arena, CCS has worked with over 27 school clients. It was obvious from the outset that Christian schools are in desperate need of fund raising help:

Desert Christian Schools in Tucson, Arizona has an incredible capital campaign underway right now. Click here for the story of how Corfield Consulting Services helped them get started.


Major High Dollar Events

Today, in a bad economy, it is even more important. That is why all schools should be looking for ways to immediately impact their annual funds. A well designed high dollar event can be the solution to that need. Other strategies take time to develop. They are important to any annual fund plan and time line. But, none of them can give an immediate infusion of cash like a high dollar event.

CCS recommends two good high dollar events a year; a high dollar banquet in the fall to fund projects such as scholarships and technology upgrades. A high dollar event in the spring w/Champion Events, can help most schools to finish the year in the black.

Long-term Development Programs

CCS enjoys designing a three-year annual fund plan and calendar for their clients. Shenandoah Valley Christian School reported recently, that after three years of working the CCS plan, they have covered all areas and have significantly increased their annual funding. In a bad economy, that is good news.
