Church Services

Our Approach

DVA Navion staff are committed to fundraising as an urgent and compelling activity. Our approach for all clients, big and small, ensures that every effort is made to work with you to achieve your goals. Our staff are passionate about their work because, at the end of the day, they know they are making a difference.

Our firm is a leader in church-related campaigns. Our staff members have extensive church experience and we are particularly sensitive to the concerns of the clergy and lay people regarding fundraising in the church. We know the importance of proper language and approach.

DVA Navion knows that raising money is most effective when it is integrated into the overall mission, teaching and direction of the parish or the congregation. We are aware of the non-financial goals as well as the financial goals, and remain sensitive to these equally important objectives in any financial programme. Executives at DVA Navion have achieved extraordinary results in the past and this experience is applied to each new programme.

Our Total Development Plan is a comprehensive approach to meeting a host of funding needs over a longer period of time.

Total Development Plan

Comprehensive Financial Stewardship Strategy

This complete approach to parish and diocesan fund development includes:

  • Volunteer Recruitment and Development
  • Proportionate Giving Plans
  • Planned Giving
  • Annual Giving
  • Stewardship Education Programmes
  • Stewardship Seminars
  • Organizational Development
  • Capital Campaigns

 Specific Services

  • Diocesan, Parish and Congregational Programmes

We have directed 80 Diocesan and congregational campaigns or studies. Ninety-five percent of our campaigns have reached or exceeded our goal and every one of them have been great experiences with a variety of benefits.

  • Increased Parish Income Programmes

We have a programme to increase parish income by 25-35% in one year. It has been used successfully in over 100 parishes. This is an eight week programme with a strong educational dimension and a minimum of organisation.

  • Consultative Services

DVA Navion provides ongoing fundraising services on an "as needed" basis. We have the experience to write and implement programmes for special needs, circumstances and opportunities.

  • Planned Giving

Many faithful church people would like to continue their support of the work of the Church after their life on earth is over. DVA Navion is equipped to provide services in planned giving, with particular emphasis on wills and bequests.

  • Year-Round Stewardship Plans

Our firm has developed a year-round programme of education, information, volunteer enlistment, annual financial programmes, and planned giving. This is timed to fit the seasons of comprehensive strategy and plan for financial stewardship, education, and special needs fund development.

  • Information Management

At DVA Navion, we can assist in developing systems to manage information on parishioner skills, volunteer opportunities and financial resources in a way that not only makes the information available to those who need it, but also maintains confidentiality.

We work as a team in partnership with parish leaders, thereby providing a broad spectrum of experience and commitment to success in both the financial and non-financial elements of the financial programme.

Our clients have the opportunity to meet and approve the staff who are available to work with them and to assure they are both "fit" and qualified.

Staff depth is just one of the things that DVA Navion can offer to parishes.
