Mark Davy & Associates serves as a church fundraising capital campaign consulting company. We begin by learning who you are as a faith community and the vision you’re seeking to fulfill.

With over 31 years of experience in fundraising, we provide services in various areas including: pre-campaign feasibility studies, capital campaigns, membership engagement and program assessments, annual fund/stewardship campaigns, and development assessments.

We assist in creating the synergy and enthusiasm required to conduct a successful capital campaign.
