Corfield Consulting Services offers a wide variety of services for Christian schools, churches and Christian non-profit organizations. Our proven track record is a testament that our training, development and implementation approach can maximize fundraising. From feasibility studies to database consulting to capital campaigns, we can assist your organization in meetings its goals.

We perform an extremely comprehensive study to help understand your Christian school, church or organization's perception and help capitalize on major fundraising opportunities. The resulting information, inside and outside the fundraising realm, will assist you in learning how your ministry is perceived by your constituency. Our proven process stirs participants to action based on Biblical non-threatening principles.

The CCS capital campaign process is designed specifically for your organization's mission to successfully raise necessary funding from a limited constituency to buy or build facilities or to meet other capital and equipment needs.

High Dollar Events – Events that raise $25,000 or more

CCS has extensive experience in setting up annual fund banquets. Separate from capital campaign banquets, a fund raising banquet for annual fund needs is a high $$ event that all schools can do successfully, if they follow a well designed plan. Our plan is designed to build momentum from planning the banquet to the banquet, through the banquet agenda and into a strategic follow-up process. This is a purpose driven event that should raise at least $30,000 or more for your school. We recommend a CCS banquet for your fall event. This should give your school an infusion of cash for annual fund needs.

CCS has experience with high dollar golf tournaments, auctions, and other events that can raise an incredible amount of funding for your annual fund if done properly. Two well-done events a year can help your annual fund to meet the needs for which it was intended as well as train your constituents in institutional giving.

Your website is the best way to show what God is doing at your school. We can provide analysis and recommendations to improve the effectiveness and increase traffic to the site.  Sonlight Studios produces short videos for each page on your site to engage viewers. Viewers don’t want to read text about your programs so let Sonlight produce a short video for these pages. It’s very affordable and brings excitement to your site.

CCS will write appeal letters on your behalf to show you how it is done and then train development personnel in the process and frequency these letters are to be written. The appeals serve to increase ministry awareness and funding.

CCS will train development personnel in researching and writing compelling proposals to foundations that should be a great fit with your organization's unique mission.

CCS has designed this manual to meet the needs of the school in significantly raising funds above tuition that will meet the school's annual fund needs and serve to keep tuition hikes down and rare. CCS uses this manual as the main teaching too to show development personnel how and when to implement the strategies contained therein.

We provide individual training to Headmasters, Board Chairman, Development Directors, Database Supervisors and Development Assistants.

CCS recommends Ren Web’s “Donor Connect,: for tracking gifts, writing receipts, appeal letters, donor thank you notes, etc. CCS surveyed some of Ren Web’s schools that had purchased its old program, “Fundraiser Pro.” From that survey, recommendations were made to RenWeb to rework its program to meet the needs of the Christian day school. As a result, “Donor Connect” was launched. The revised program is much more user friendly, flexible and relational than most if not all donor base programs on the market – and, it is designed with the Christian and private schools in mind. Schools are praising Donor Connect for its capabilities to manage its constituent communication, groups, events, and gift/ pledge tracking. For that reason, CCS will now refer all of our donor data base inquiries to “Donor Connect” by RenWeb. You will find there is not a question that their professionals will not take seriously.
