The Partners Brand
For nearly 30 years, Partners for Sacred Places has empowered congregations to restore their buildings and revitalize their communities. At Partners, we approach all our Consulting Services as an extension of our mission, an important service to and resource for our core constituency.
A Comprehensive, Customized, and Community-Oriented Approach
Building on the trust we have earned in faith communities over two decades, the innovative fundraising tools and approaches that we have developed, and the expertise and skills of our staff, Partners’ Capital Campaign Consulting Services are characterized by:
Creativity: Partners recognizes, appreciates and celebrates the unique story that every historic sacred place has to tell. We are dedicated to researching and developing innovative tools and services that empower congregations to understand the singular role that each plays in the past, present and future of the community.
Collaboration: Partners fosters new and stronger relationships between stakeholders in the faith, philanthropy, preservation and academic sectors. We help congregations open their doors to the community, and we help communities see the value – social, cultural, and economic – of investing in local congregations and parishes.
Quality: Over two decades, Partners has cultivated an unparalleled expertise in the field of older sacred places. Our advocacy work is strengthened by partnerships with leading academics and policy-makers. Our programs are piloted and adapted before implementation and evaluated and updated frequently to ensure their continued relevance and impact.
