Havey & Associates Church Fundraising Client Testimonials

Here's what our Church Fundraising Clients are saying:

"I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for your leadership and guidance during our campaign! Thank you for steering us along and keeping us focused. You certainly made this campaign successful with your expertise and can do attitude. Prayers for continued success in helping churches reach for and attain their goals for their campaigns."

Pat Nichols, Campaign Volunteer
First Congregational Church
Oshkosh, Wisconsin

"Our church retained Havey & Associates, Inc. to assist us with a large capital campaign. We found them to be very professional and easy to work with. They have a system which they have perfected over many years of experience with churches of all sizes - and it works! Our church raised over four times the amount of our annual pledge campaign. In addition to their system and proven track record of success, two attributes stand out. First, they are bulldogs--and I mean that in the nicest sense. They will not let a deadline pass without a friendly reminder. They are relentless. Second, the secretarial/administrative services provided were absolutely invaluable. We could not have raised the most money in our church's history without Havey & Associates, Inc."

Tom and Karen Aldrich, Capital Campaign Coordinators
Glenview Community Church UCC
Glenview, Illinois

"With the help of Havey & Associates, Inc. the Glenview Community Church, United Church of Christ undertook a major capital campaign to renew its building (built in four stages from 1946 to 1959) and make it more supportive of a modern congregation. Havey & Associates, Inc. could not have been more interested and intentional in their partnership with us! At $3.8 million, our Forward in Faith campaign’s result is the largest amount (even adjusted for inflation) of any campaign in the church’s 75-year history. We would have never experienced this success without Havey & Associates, Inc. With their never-ending persistence and confidence, they are simply the best!"

Rev. Dr. Charles E. Mize, Senior Pastor
Glenview Community Church UCC
Glenview, Illinois

"Blessings to you! I want to express our church’s gratitude for Havey & Associates, inc.’s leadership with our CAMPITAL Campaign! Your persistent, caring leadership has again blessed the church - this time our Outdoor Ministry Program at Moon Beach and Pilgrim Center! Thank you for surpassing the $3,000,000 goal - and for enabling us to think about a hopeful future! Now - it is up to our churches to fulfill their pledge and to our camps to position themselves for the future!"

Rev. Kim Henning, Campaign Co-Chairperson
United Church Camps, Inc.
Green Lake & St. Germain, Wisconsin

"Havey & Associates, inc. have been wonderful to work with on our CAMPITAL Campaign. They are amazingly organized, thorough, and tenacious in getting results. Havey & Associates are a tremendous service for any fundraising project."

Glenn Svetnicka, Development Director
United Church Camps, Inc.
Green Lake & St. Germain, Wisconsin

"I had the opportunity to serve as campaign coordinator for the First Congregational Church's capital campaign this year. We contracted with Havey & Associates, inc. for the second time in 10 years and again they exceeded our expectations. The current project was unusual, in the fact that we were fundraising at the same time the construction was happening to renovate our sanctuary. This put extra pressure on all of us to raise the money at a faster pace. Havey & Associates, inc. did not disappoint! In less than five months we had pledges just under $700,000, exceeding our challenge goal by $40,000. I am convinced that we could not have accomplished this result without the efficiency, guidance, structure and invaluable training provided by Havey & Associates, inc. They kept us on schedule, encouraged us, and all of the volunteers involved felt the process was positive and rewarding. I am very grateful we worked with Havey & Associates, inc. again!"

Mary Lyke, Campaign Coordinator
First Congregational Church of Ripon UCC
Ripon, Wisconsin

"Our Sacred Space Renewal campaign was the first professional fundraising experience I've had. The congregation had successfully worked with Havey & Associates, inc. 10 years ago, and they were ready and confident to embark on this journey with them again. But I, as a relatively new pastor, had reservations about whether or not I had the skills to lead them through it. Every step of the way, Havey & Associates, inc. were able to quell my fears and empower me to be a confident leader. Their strong organizational skills allowed me to focus on being a spiritual presence and tending to the pastoral needs of the experience without worrying so much about the nuts and bolts. Ultimately, our experience was overwhelmingly positive. We surpassed our challenge goal of $660,000 by raising just shy of $700,000, and many relationships within the church grew stronger as a result of the personal visits and phone calls. I would highly recommend Havey & Associates, inc. for your next capital fundraising campaign."

Rev. Joanna D’Agostino, Pastor
First Congregational Church of Ripon UCC
Ripon, Wisconsin

"Thank you, Havey & Associates! We just concluded another successful capital campaign with your help. We enlisted your services again after a successful campaign ten years ago. This time around, we needed to raise at least $700,000 to do upgrades on our physical plant and heating system, support church camps, and a nearby UCC-related college. With your thoughtful planning and vital encouragement, we have received gifts and pledges of over $938,000! We are very impressed with your approach to fundraising in the church, to help us raise our "sights" and invite participation from all. Thank you again!"

Rev’s. Jim and Julia Hollister, Pastors
First Congregational Church, UCC
Sheboygan, Wisconsin

"Havey & Associates, inc. were a very effective team for our Renewing Our Mission - Inside and Out capital campaign. They have a great plan for fundraising that worked very well for us and a superb organization. They kept us "on track," sent out frequent and thorough updates, and were always available to encourage, answer questions and affirm this system of fundraising. At the conclusion of our campaign, we had raised our target funds, reaffirmed and added many positive connections and friendships within the church, and the 40+ volunteers that worked on this campaign felt very proud of this accomplishment."

Carol Dussault, Campaign Coordinator
First Congregational Church, UCC
Sheboygan, Wisconsin

"Church of Peace UCC in Fond du Lac expresses deep appreciation to Havey & Associates, inc. for their invaluable guidance to us as we raised money for a building addition to our church. With their help, our congregation made up of mostly blue-collar workers and retired people pledged sufficient money to fund an endowment and build a new educational wing for our church building. Havey & Associates was key in the success of this project; we could not have done it without you. Thank you!"

Rev. Jennifer Dawson, Pastor
Church of Peace UCC
Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

"It had been a long time since we did a capital campaign so many of our members were skeptical that we could raise a goal of $500,000. The one thing we needed was the proven method of fundraising that we found when we hired Havey & Associates. They provided the fundraising techniques, the support systems and the volunteer training that we needed to be successful. I would highly recommend Havey & Associates to any church to guide them through a fundraising campaign."

Ron Moersfelder, General Co-Chair
Plymouth Congregational UCC
Burlington, Wisconsin

"After a period of discernment Plymouth Church was ready to launch the single most aggressive campaign in its 158 year history. Once contracted, Havey & Associates, inc. came to every meeting with a clear agenda of the tasks at hand and followed through on their commitment at every stage of the process. After having completed a successful capital campaign under the direction of Havey & Associates, inc., Plymouth Church is now poised for the future making believers even out of the biggest of skeptics in our congregation. Havey's plan is a direct-ask model that is a theologically and spiritually driven approach to fundraising. It is all about raising donor's sights to their potential as individuals within a greater giving community of faith. Congregations that subscribe to their plan discover that it will generate "new" money as well as pump a lot of new energy into the life of the church. Havey & Associates are worth every dollar invested into their services. They are the real deal; a premiere fundraising program that will succeed when given the opportunity to implement a program on behalf of those retaining their services."

Rev. Robert E. Wang, Pastor
Plymouth Congregational UCC
Burlington, Wisconsin

"As a member of TWO churches, I was fortunate to have the opportunity as a campaign coordinator to work with Havey & Associates, Inc. on two very SUCCESSFUL capital campaigns! Using the resources that Havey & Associates, Inc. provided, we were able to meet our challenge goal at St. John's Lutheran Church ELCA (Building to Serve 2012) within the ambitious six month time line! Their campaign plan which included volunteer training, brochure and announcement publishing, correspondence and pledge account software were invaluable to us. The communication features of the campaign not only informed church members on a weekly basis of campaign activities and progress but energized their interest in serving their church and its ministry! Once again we are the grateful benefactors of Havey & Associates, Inc. years of fundraising counsel experience, professionalism, and dedication to helping churches achieve their goals!"

Shirley Johnson, Campaign Coordinator
St. John's Lutheran Church ELCA
Rock Island, Illinois

"Our boiler decided to fail in the midst of a major national economic downturn, and we were faced with the need to raise at least $1 million - more than our church had ever raised before. We knew we needed help, and we contracted with Havey & Associates, inc. Havey & Associates, inc. provided us with the organizational structure and support that enabled us to make optimum use of the more than 100 church members who worked on some aspect of the campaign. Havey & Associates, inc. were real taskmasters, and that was just what we needed. We were all flabbergasted when the final amount raised was almost $2.2 million."

Phillip R. Certain, Moderator
First Congregational United Church of Christ
Madison, Wisconsin

"There is no real secret to successful capital fundraising. It takes a well thought-out plan, committed volunteers and the drive to execute and complete the campaign. Havey & Associates, inc. bring the experience and knowledge to create a very solid plan and the energy and discipline to execute the campaign; the Church need only supply the committed volunteers. We have many members who believe in our Congregation and mission but recent financial challenges and the desire to do things our own way led many to doubt whether the campaign could succeed. With Havey & Associates, inc.'s straightforward and clear plan and consistent approach and support, we were able to mobilize our energy and faith to complete an astonishingly successful campaign which will lead to the renewal of our Church."

Paul Karch, Congregational Chairperson
First Congregational United Church of Christ
Madison, Wisconsin

"I'm recently retired, and one of the reasons I took on the challenge of the Campaign Coordinator was to learn about fundraising... and I learned a lot! Havey & Associates, inc. helped our small church raise nearly 7 times our annual stewardship drive. A task many in our church thought was impossible. I believe the two biggest things that they did for us was raise our sights and to keep us on task. We should have our new building paid for within 5 years. Our elderly congregation of only 130 families raised nearly $800,000. I personally received many comments on their professionalism and care for our congregation. We would not have been successful without the help of Havey & Associates, inc.!"

David Thompson, Campaign Coordinator
St. Paul's UCC
Elgin, Illinois

"When our church first considered hiring Havey & Associates, inc. for our capital campaign I was not totally convinced that this was the route we should take. However, we did decide to hire Havey & Associates, inc. and I found myself agreeing to be a capital campaign chair. I then began working closely with Havey & Associates, inc. I was totally impressed with the planning and work they had done to set up our campaign. The materials were organized, the process was clear, a timetable was established and explicit training was given. Their expertise and leadership in fundraising was apparent. They truly knew the steps that were needed to execute a successful campaign. Havey & Associates, inc. became business partners with us, but at the same time it was obvious that they genuinely cared about us and had as much hope as we did that our campaign would be a success. We did meet our goal and I thank the Lord that he lead us in the right direction. It was truly a pleasure to work with Steve Havey and I would highly recommend Havey & Associates, inc. for any fundraising project."

Karen Smith, Congregational Chairperson
St. Paul's UCC
Elgin, Illinois

"We are glad we worked with Havey & Associates, inc. on our most recent capital campaign. After several lackluster campaigns over the last 15 years, we signed on with Havey & Associates, inc. and were not disappointed. Steve Havey provided excellent resources and good training, while keeping us on track to have the most successful capital campaign this congregation has ever had. Our minimum goal was $1.2 million. With their help, we raised nearly $1.5 million. This will help us retire the bulk of our debt, free us up from constant financial concerns, and allow us to focus on ministry and mission. Thank you Havey & Associates, inc.!"

The Rev. James Iliff, Pastor
Middleton Community Church UCC
Middleton, Wisconsin

"After previous capital campaigns using another fundraising consultant with lackluster results, our church decided to use Havey & Associates, inc. for our campaign. Our church leadership spoke with many other churches who had worked with Havey & Associates, inc. in the past, and we received uniformly positive feedback. Now that our capital campaign is complete, we can see why so many churches continue to work with Havey & Associates, inc.

Havey & Associates, inc. know how to conduct a capital campaign, and know the unique challenges that churches face with fundraising. They kept our church and our volunteers on task throughout the campaign. Even though we conducted our campaign in the midst of a bleak economic outlook, we met and exceeded our campaign goal - a result many in our congregation did not think was possible. This was truly a testament to the expertise of Havey & Associates, inc. Steve Havey and Mary Kay Havey were a pleasure to work with and I would recommend them without hesitation to any other church considering a campaign."

Eric Wilson, Capital Campaign Coordinator
Middleton Community Church UCC
Middleton, Wisconsin

"Our church had tried unsuccessfully in the past to develop and fund a plan for handicapped accessibility and additional space. After meeting with Havey & Associates, inc. to discuss their system for fundraising, we decided to contract with them and begin a capital campaign fund drive. Because of their leadership, diligence, organizational skills and proven system, we raised more money than most of us ever thought possible. Thanks to Havey & Associates, inc., we will soon be opening the doors of a church that can accommodate everyone. Thank you!"

Mike Graham, Campaign Coordinator
St. Paul's UCC
Ellsworth, Wisconsin

"Havey & Associates, inc. provided superior counsel on our capital campaign: from a well-thought-out plan that gave us the courage to take risks, to patient wisdom as we stretched, to good humor and encouragement that kept us going. Our successful outcome could not have happened without the coaching of Steve Havey and his team. We not only exceeded our financial goals but learned along the way about the spirituality of giving and discovered hidden talents for leadership in our community."

The Rev. Andrew Warner, Senior Pastor
Plymouth Church UCC
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"It was a pleasure to work with the Havey & Associates, inc. team for our first capital campaign in 20 years. Steve Havey and his staff were professional, knowledgeable and provided great systems and follow-through to keep the Campaign Volunteers focused, energized and on-track. His fundraising experience and leadership helped us to achieve our goal. We learned a great deal, had fun and enriched our relationships as a Congregation. We were nervous about undertaking such a big, audacious goal, but with Steve Havey's guidance and training we did it! Hats off to Havey & Associates, inc. for their counsel, great systems and encouragement! It wasn't easy, but their systems made it simple to stay focused and on track."

Luci Klebar, Moderator
Plymouth Church UCC
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"Our Capital campaign was a great success! Havey & Associates, inc. was a key reason for this success. Their proven methods of fundraising were easy to follow and the support was phenomenal. Steve is a "people" person and he's knowledgeable. His thorough presentations and in depth knowledge of fundraising, emotional, social and financial skills allowed our volunteers to make their visits with confidence - believing that we would achieve our goals and the vision for the future of our church. Thank you Havey & Associates, inc.!"

Jeanne Sherer, Campaign Coordinator
Plymouth Church UCC
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"Our decision to hire Havey & Associates, inc. to shepherd our Capital Campaign was the key to its success. Our minimum goal was a HUGE stretch for us - $800,000 - with an intermediate goal of $1.3 million and a challenge goal of $1.5 million. With 90% of the pledges returned, we have raised more than $1.25 million - surprising even the most optimistic among us! Our church has never raised money as carefully or as successfully as we have with Havey & Associates, inc.'s guidance."

The Rev. Katherine Mulhern, Pastor
Edwards Congregational UCC
Davenport, Iowa

"Using the resources that Havey & Associates, inc. provided our church, we were able to meet our intermediate campaign goal of $1,250,000+ within an ambitious six month time line. The campaign plan resources offered ~ which included volunteer training, brochure and announcement publishing, correspondence and pledge account software ~ were invaluable to us. We are grateful benefactors of Havey & Associates, inc. years of fundraising counsel experience, professionalism, and dedication to helping churches achieve their goals."

Shirley Johnson, Campaign Coordinator
Edwards Congregational UCC
Davenport, Iowa

"The work of Havey and Associates, inc. in the Wisconsin Conference, United Church of Christ, has provided the guidance and encouragement that enabled us to have two very successful campaigns, raising nearly $10 million on goals of about $8 million. As campaign counsel, Steve Havey and his staff provided expert advice every step of the way. They listened to our concerns, but they always kept us on task and moving forward with confidence and hope. They taught us how to create a case, how to communicate the needs of our program, and, most importantly, how to ask and invite people to give generously to our common mission. All of the work by Havey and Associates, inc. was highly professional in every respect. In addition to our Conference campaigns, Havey and Associates, inc. has assisted numerous churches in our Conference with individual congregational campaigns for both building projects and ministry programs. In these cases as well, their work has been effective in securing dollars needed to carry out the mission of the church. We are grateful for Steve Havey's guidance in these important campaigns and wholeheartedly recommend him."

The Rev. David S. Moyer, Retired Conference Minister
Wisconsin Conference United Church of Christ
Deforest, Wisconsin

"Havey & Associates, inc. was recommended to the Southeast Conference of the United Church of Christ as the finest capital campaign direction Firm available to churches and conferences of the UCC. They did not disappoint, rather they exceeded expectations. The Southeast Conference covers a five state area, and Havey & Associates, inc. worked with us from their Wisconsin office. In spite of the considerable challenges of geography and distances, Havey & Associates, inc. was readily available, completely reliable, extraordinarily thorough and creative beyond my highest expectations. They consistently went over and above the work for which we had contracted, and gave generously of their time. UCC Conference financial campaigns are particularly challenging, and Havey & Associates, inc. delivered a campaign that was excellent in every aspect. They also worked well and collegially with both our staff and leadership."

The Rev. Dr. Timothy C. Downs, Retired Conference Minister
Southeast Conference United Church of Christ
Atlanta, Georgia

"In 1987 Steve Havey, of Havey and Associates, inc. conducted a fundraising campaign for the Nebraska Conference, United Church of Christ. Our goal was $1,000,000 and we had pledges for $ 1,650,000. We followed his suggested plan and it was excellent. Steve is a very hard worker and left no stone unturned. His creativity was beyond my expectations. When he tells you something, he follows through. You will be most satisfied with his services."

The Rev. Clarence "Clip" M. Higgins, Jr., Retired Conference Minister
Nebraska Conference United Church of Christ
Lincoln, Nebraska

"I have but one suggestion for those who would hire Havey & Associates. Follow their advice! Havey & Associates know and love their business. What they bring to fundraising and capital campaigns are enthusiasm and a tremendous record of achievement. We gave them two opportunities to meet the challenge of raising funds from our congregations. The campaigns turned out to be inspired. Havey & Associates hit the ball out of the park,... each time!"

The Rev. Dr. Frederick Trost, Retired Conference Minister
Wisconsin Conference United Church of Christ
DeForest, Wisconsin

"Havey & Associates, inc. has a solid campaign program and is pro-active in keeping leadership on top of their needed tasks. They have done successful capital campaigns that build enthusiasm and realized development potentials. We refer Havey & Associates, inc. to our local churches as their record of success in local church campaigns is excellent."

The Rev. Jorge L. Morales, Conference Minister
Illinois Conference United Church Of Christ
Westchester, Illinois

"We first contracted with Havey & Associates to raise over $3 million dollars from our 253 churches. Stephen raised our vision to a $6 million goal and put his expertise and organization skills to the task to help us reach the goal. In 1999, we recontracted with them for a goal of $4.9 million and again we over subscribed. We were extremely pleased with the professionalism and "can do" management of Havey & Associates, inc."

John L. Reed, Campaign Chairman & Board Member
Wisconsin Conference United Church of Christ
DeForest, Wisconsin

"Our Southeast Conference UCC Board of Directors was inexperienced in fundraising and we were very nervous about launching our recent capital campaign. Havey & Associates, inc. gave us confidence by guiding us through every step of the process, by helping us garner the skills we needed and by staying on top of the details as the campaign proceeded. I started out as a skeptic when it came to campaigns of this sort; I became a "believer" because the expertise provided by Havey & Associates, inc. helped us to "step up and step out" in a time of great need within our conference."

Robert Watson, General Co-Chairperson
Southeast Conference United Church of Christ
Atlanta, Georgia

"As a minister of the United Church of Christ, I have worked with Havey & Associates, inc. on three separate capital campaigns - two for our local church and one for the Illinois Conference UCC. In each case Havey & Associates, inc. brought us a well-conceived campaign for which they worked diligently. Havey & Associates, inc. helped us to raise our sights and then worked hard to achieve them. One of the things I hope for from a fund raiser is someone who will make sure all the details are attended to - there are many - and that the volunteers are supported, encouraged and, at times, pushed. Havey & Associates, inc. does all of these. In addition, Havey & Associates, inc. stays behind the scenes doing their work and lets others be seen and heard by the congregation. I think that is important. I highly recommend Havey & Associates, inc."

The Rev. Dr. John Rodgers, Senior Minister
The Congregational Church UCC
St. Charles, Illinois

"Havey & Associates, inc. knows how to run a successful church-friendly financial campaign. Their organizational skills and background provide them with an uncommon knowledge of how to get things done. The benefits of their program extend beyond the dollars raised. The level of involvement and the experience of having accomplished something many of us thought was not possible have unleashed a creative and positive energy in the life of our church that probably would not have happened otherwise. THANK YOU!!"

The Rev. Mark West, Pastor
Our Saviour's UCC
Ripon, Wisconsin

"Our church was founded in 1863. In 145 years, our church has never conducted a capital campaign. We are primarily, a blue-collar, elderly congregation and many members said that our goals could never be accomplished. We wouldn't have had a successful campaign without the capable leadership of Steve Havey. He was our coach. We had a good team working together on this campaign, but without Steve's direction, we never would have reached the level we did. We had to spend money to hire Steve, but testimonies from other churches convinced us it was a good idea. These churches indicated they had hired Havey & Associates, inc. to do one campaign, but then called him back years later to do another. Havey & Associates, inc. also provided the secretarial service for our campaign which was also an important step in a smooth campaign process. You will be delighted with Havey & Associates, inc.'s leadership, professionalism, and knowledge."

Pat Schaub, Congregation President
Our Saviour's UCC
Ripon, Wisconsin

"I have known Steve for 20 years and known of his work through several Conference appeals, but this year (2008) I had the opportunity to work with him directly on our congregation's capital campaign. He is able to do two things at the same time: keep focused on the larger objective while not missing the importance of many small details. Anyone utilizing the services of Havey & Associates, inc. will be well served by Steve's steady engagement in the entire process, his consistent encouragement to lay leaders and clergy, and his organized plan and approach. Follow the plan and the results are all but guaranteed. In our campaign with a minimum goal of $1 million and an intermediate goal of $1.8 million we raised over $2.35 million! Our leadership is still amazed by these results. It's clear we would not have achieved these results without Havey & Associates, inc.'s guidance."

The Rev. Stephen H. Schuette, Senior Minister
Bethel United Church of Christ
Elmhurst, Illinois

"Thanks to the guidance and direction from Havey & Associates, inc., Bethel United Church of Christ had a hugely successful capital campaign. Their program is well documented, easy to follow, and covered all the key points in maximizing the church's giving potential. Not only did we exceed our high-end goal, our members and friends pledged about 7 times the amount of our last capital campaign! Needless to say, this astonishing amount completely silenced those doubting members who thought we were "dreamers" for aiming so high (and for running a campaign in the midst of an economic downturn). Several factors led to our success. First, Havey & Associates' years of experience in non-profit fundraising, especially within the UCC, guided us in the right direction and kept us from making many mistakes. Second, they got us to raise our expectations and there is no doubt that our pledge totals were much higher as a result. Third, their guidelines and computer program were invaluable in teaching us what to do and how to do it, and keeping track of the entire process. Fourth, their timely follow-up messages by phone and email kept our volunteers on-track and on time. Some might call this perseverance but I like to think of it as the gentle but firm guiding hand. Again, Havey & Associates, inc. thank you for an outstanding campaign. You have gained a big vote of confidence from Bethel UCC."

William Lyman, Campaign Coordinator
Bethel United Church Of Christ
Elmhurst, Illinois

"The key to our successful capital campaign was following Havey & Associates plan. We as campaign leaders challenged ourselves to give sacrificially, and then we went out and challenged others in our congregation. We received 70% more in pledges than we anticipated!"

The Rev. Dr. David Foxgrover, Pastor
Congregational Church of Batavia UCC
Batavia, Illinois

"It has been a pleasure working with Havey & Associates, inc. for the past year and a half. As a member of the congregation and a campaign volunteer, I was impressed with the training and support I received in implementing Havey & Associates, inc.'s highly successful method of reaching campaign goals. As campaign secretary, a position that has been clearly defined and organized by Havey & Associates, inc., I have found their counsel and availability invaluable. Thanks to Havey and Associates, inc. our campaign is a great success."

Karen Savage, Campaign Secretary
Congregational Church of Batavia UCC
Batavia, Illinois

"Havey & Associates provided outstanding direction and support to our REACH OUT IN FAITH capital fund campaign, our first professionally-guided campaign. We easily exceeded our basic goal and continue moving toward reaching our challenge goal. Havey brought the knowledge, skill, and tools to the process that we needed. Havey was constantly in touch and always available to us throughout the campaign and continues to provide valuable follow-up support. Havey & Associates is without doubt one of the best investments we have made in the future of our church and its ministries. I personally enjoyed working with Steve Havey and recommend Havey & Associates without reservation. If a church works the Havey plan, the plan works!"

The Rev. Dr. Michael O. Simmons, Pastor
Spring Creek United Church of Christ
Rockford, Illinois

"Our congregation voted to conduct a 5-year capital campaign, with the goal of raising $1,000,000. This was by far the most ambitious campaign our church has ever done, and we hired Havey & Associates as our fundraising consulting firm. I am pleased to say that, because of the professional guidance provided by Havey & Associates, we achieved our fundraising goal, something that we could never have done on our own. I would highly recommend Havey & Associates to assist in your fundraising endeavor. They are professional, organized, courteous, and a pleasure to work with."

Marty Schranz, Moderator, Co-Campaign Coordinator
First Congregational Church UCC
Downers Grove, Illinois

"When our congregation realized it would take nearly two million dollars to address our facility needs (with no seed money to start with) we immediately assumed the project would have to be significantly scaled back. To our surprise "Havey & Associates, inc. convinced us that we could raise between $700,000 and $900,000 over a five year period. The campaign proved to be a healthy process for us because it allowed people to affirm the important role of the church in their lives and to commit their resources accordingly. Many friendships were fostered through the personal visitations, and the congregation experienced a spirit of joyful anticipation which gave us the momentum to break ground within a matter of months. To date our congregation has pledged $872,000 and the collection process continues to meet our expectations. The Havey & Associates program works miracles!"

The Rev. Franz Rigert, Pastor
Pilgrim United Church of Christ
Grafton, Wisconsin

"We decided to make the leap of faith and hire Havey & Associates, inc. to conduct our Second Century Campaign. In hindsight, it was exactly what we needed to do. The entire experience was a positive one from beginning to end. The home visits pulled us together as a congregation and we ended up exceeding our challenge goal! Havey & Associates, inc. has a plan and, if you dare to follow it, it really works. He challenged us and we challenged ourselves. We ended up accomplishing more than any of us believed was possible!"

The Rev. Dr. Jeff Suddendorf, Pastor
First Congregational UCC
Port Washington, Wisconsin

"Havey & Associates, inc. delivers! By "raising sights" of our church leaders and members, they were able to meet and exceed our church's capital goal! Without Havey & Associates, inc.'s persistence and professional guidance our fundraising team would have been lost. His experienced training and thorough program fostered confidence in our visitation teams. In my time as a parish minister and through community involvement, I have worked with different fundraising agencies. Havey & Associates, inc. stands above the rest as experienced professionals who wants their clients to succeed. Havey & Associates, inc. has my highest recommendation!"

The Rev. Dr. Robert Laubenstein, Minister
First United Church of Christ
Green Bay, Wisconsin

"I am writing to express my appreciation for the leadership that you gave our Capital Fund campaign at Grace Congregational Church in Two Rivers. With your assistance, we have been able to construct a $3.4 million church facility with a realist expectation of having it paid within three years. You were straight-forward in your approach to fundraising, informing us of a precise, step-by-step method. It was not easy, and some of our members will attest to the courage and confidence they needed to fulfill their responsibilities. Your proven expertise helped us to grow in faith, stretching the expectations we had ourselves. Our association with Havey and Associates did much more than raise money for a church building, it helped us to assess our loyalty to God's Kingdom and the importance of our faith. Thank you, Stephen, for your service to our congregation. I have already passed your name onto another congregation that is approaching a Capital Fund Campaign similar to ours."

The Rev. Dr. Kim Henning, Pastor
Grace Congregational UCC
Two Rivers, Wisconsin

"The success of our campaign was significantly aided by the work of Havey & Associates, inc. The organization of the process, and the support of Steve Havey was super! Without his experience and hands-on coaching, the campaign would have been much longer, and the success doubtful. His advice of sticking to the proven process was shown to be right on the money, for when a volunteer deviated from it, the donations lagged. Thank you Steve!"

R.E. "Dick" Willits, Coordinator-Share the Challenge
First Congregational Church UCC
Sheboygan, Wisconsin

"I recommend Steve Havey of Havey & Associates very highly. We appreciated his counsel very much as we sought funds for new pipe organ, remodeled rooms and a "tithe" for our endowment. Havey helped us organize ourselves along sound principles and tracked our progress with encouraging words every step of the way. Our goal was $1.1million and by the time we announced the total, we had raised over $1.3 million in gifts and pledges!"

The Rev. James Hollister, Senior Minister
First Congregational Church, UCC
Sheboygan, Wisconsin

"While I had some initial doubts about the cost of utilizing a professional fund-raiser, I now know it was money well-spent. Whenever we had questions or concerns about the Campaign, Steve Havey and his team were most accessible! Midst the myriad other responsibilities that a pastor must focus upon, Havey and Associates helped keep us 'on target.' In exceeding our $1 Million goal I am hopeful we will also be teaching our members that they ARE capable of increasing their giving and living out of a sense of abundance, not scarcity, can continue to give more financially and be better stewards long after this campaign has concluded!"

The Rev. William Hoglund, Senior Minister
First Congregational Church, UCC
Downers Grove, Illinois

"Our capital campaign goal was a greater challenge than any our congregation had seen before. Havey & Associates, Inc. provided the tools, training and encouragement we needed to help us meet that challenge. They walked with us, step by step, throughout the entire process. We are grateful to Havey & Associates for expanding our awareness of stewardship and generosity. The skills we developed while working together have already enriched our church's ministry beyond the campaign."

The Rev. Kathryn Kuhn, Minister
Bethlehem United Church Of Christ
Kiel, Wisconsin

"Our church had a wonderful experience working with Havey & Associates, inc. They pushed us hard to reach our goal. I know that without their help, we would not be where we are today. We were able to receive many more pledge dollars than we ever expected due to the ideas and suggestions from Havey & Associates, inc. Thank you and God Bless!"

Denise Summers, Campaign Coordinator
Bethlehem United Church Of Christ

"As the Campaign Coordinator for our Campaign, I was most impressed with the orchestration of the Havey & Associates, inc. plan. The entire plan is provided to you, ready to go; all you have to do is follow the plan and you will undoubtedly achieve your goals. The detailed deadline schedule that is crafted for your campaign keeps you on track. The experienceof Havey & Associates, inc. is ready and waiting for you to tap into. Any stumbling blocks you come across along your campaign trail, they are readily available, willing, an able to offer their advice and experience to help you through.

"Let me take this opportunity to formally thank and acknowledge your counsel and assistance with Windsor United Church of Christ's amazing capital campaign this year. The church's outstanding response and the more than $900,000 raised is a tribute to you and your staff, and the guidance and encouragement you gave to us throughout the process. Windsor United Church of Christ, a congregation nearly 150 years old, will use the resources gained during the "Building a Legacy of Love" campaign to construct a church school and sanctuary expansion during 2006. We are actively involved in the planning process, having chosen our design/build firm in late November. We are excited about the planning, and are hopeful of breaking ground in late March or early April.

Your expertise made all the difference. We continue to be grateful for the work you helped us accomplish, and for the future work and ministry that will be possible as a result of the campaign's wonderful outcome. Again, my personal thanks to you for your willingness to take us to a new level of understanding and a new spirit of growth at Windsor United Church of Christ! Sincerely yours."

The Reverend David McDonald, Senior Pastor

"I want you to know how much I appreciated working with you on the fundraising campaign for our church, the First Congregational Church of Ripon. Not only did we raise more money than our expectations, but we did it in record time. We could not have accomplished this without the help provided by you and your staff. It was a great feeling to stand in front of the congregation and announce we had raised $1,248,000 after only six weeks of visitation with our members."

Jere Chapin, Campaign Auditor
First Congregational Church Of Ripon
Ripon, Wisconsin

"From beginning to end, working with Havey & Associates, inc. has been a pleasure. The planning and strategy that were used and followed insured the successful outcome to the capital campaign at First Congregational Church of Ripon Wisconsin. The one additional thing I would add is when you listen to Havey & Associates, inc. and follow the Plan they set forth, the results are truly amazing. I highly recommend Havey & Associates, inc. to any congregation desiring a successful outcome to a capital campaign."

The Rev. Jack Kraaz, Pastor
First Congregational Church of Ripon
Ripon, Wisconsin

"We at First Congregational Church of Ripon recently completed a capital campaign with the support of Havey & Associates, inc. People all over Ripon were astounded by how much money we raised. I'm convinced that we never could have been this successful without the services of Havey & Associates, inc. They were well organized, professional, and very accessible. I felt comfortable calling whenever I needed guidance, and they were always friendly and helpful. They've developed a system that is remarkably effective. If I'm ever involved in another fundraising campaign, Havey & Associates, inc. will be the first place I look for help - I've already recommended their services to others."

Bev Christ, Campaign Coordinator
First Congregational Church Of Ripon
Ripon, Wisconsin

"The fundraising program that Havey & Associates, inc. brought to our church was well-conceived and quite effective. We were a church in transition between senior ministers and without a history of successful fundraising. Nevertheless, the amount we raised in our Anniversary Capital Campaign far exceeded our minimum goal and certainly exceeded the expectations of most of our congregation. Thank you so much for your help. We could not have done this without you. Thank you especially for your patience with us."

Doris Bryant, Campaign Coordinator
First Congregational Church Of LaGrange
LaGrange, IL

"Without the proven system that Havey & Associates, inc. has developed, we would not have known where to start with our capital campaign efforts. Steve trained us and gave us the confidence that we needed to execute our campaign successfully. I would recommend their system to anyone conducting a fundraising campaign."

Jerry Palmer, Moderator
First Congregational Church Of LaGrange
LaGrange, IL

"Havey & Associates, inc. got the job done in the big way for us. There were no gimmicks, no special tricks, just the hard work of involving everyone in the congregation and having members "raise the sights" of other members to reach our goal. Most churches have an aversion to raising money. Churches need an "outsider" who can come in and facilitate a process where a congregation challenges itself to meet a goal. Havey & Associates, inc. method works. Bottom line. We far exceeded our goal."

The Rev. Dr. Peter Luckey, Senior Pastor
Plymouth Church
Lawrence, Kansas

"What a great experience our congregation had with Havey & Associates, inc. on our capital campaign. Three years ago, we did a small $40,000 campaign that took almost a year to raise and gave us all a headache. We were really worried what would happen to our congregation now that we needed $250,000 for major work to our church building. Last Sunday we announced that we surpassed $403,000 and we are still counting. Steve Havey's proven methods really work. I would not hesitate hiring Havey and Associates, inc. to conduct another campaign for us."

The Rev. David Schlieter, Pastor
Congregational UCC
Mineral Point, Wisconsin

"We chose to work with Havey & Associates, inc. at the recommendation of another church in our area. We are a small congregation with a small operating budget, and expected it to be very difficult to reach our goal of $250,000 to replace our heating system and re-lead our stained glass windows. Havey & Associates, inc.'s process broke our 2006 Building Campaign into small, manageable steps that helped us exceed our goal, raising over $403,000. It also had the unanticipated benefit of engaging our members in the process, with 25% of the members volunteering in some manner and more than 70% pledging to the campaign."

Cindy and Joe Palzkill, Coordinators
Congregational UCC
Mineral Point, Wisconsin

"Our capital campaign to provide church accessibility was an amazing, effective and necessary process. Our theme was ACCESS 2000: Affirming Christ's Church--Everyone Shares in Service! The minimum goal was $364,000; and pledges were made for $556,000--over one and a half times our goal! Paid pledges were 97%, yielding $540,000! How could a small church in a small rural community do better? Our building program is now paid in full. Havey & Associates, Inc. enabled us to shape and present our vision in such an efficient and exciting fashion that we were able to "raise our sights" and respond appropriately. We sincerely appreciate Havey & Associates, Inc's years of fundraising wisdom all ordered within an effective plan tailored for our situation."

Grandon Harris, Campaign Coordinator

Park Falls, Wisconsin

"Havey & Associates, inc. was instrumental in the success of the Community Church of Durham's "Of One Spirit" Capital Campaign. Our goal was $500,000 yet we raised over $990,000. Their hands on involvement and enthusiasm transferred through to the Steering Committee which made our job easier and more enjoyable. A daily task book, printed materials, detailed instructions and guidance allowed busy Church members to successfully achieve our goals and dreams. We found Havey & Associates, inc. to be attentive, pleasant and responsive to our needs and questions."

Stuart Bauder
Co-Chairperson, "Of One Spirit" Capital Campaign
Community Church of Durham
Durham, New Hampshire

"Our congregation was 110 years old with older members, and lightening struck (or the grace of God) and our people decided to build a new church building in a new suburban location. We interviewed half a dozen fundraising firms and also considered doing it ourselves, so we wouldn't hurt any feelings. Finally, one assertive member said, 'we only want to go through this process once and we want to reach our goal'. The only person we interviewed that met that criterion was Havey & Associates, inc. That member was right. Havey & Associates, inc. will lead you through the process and you WILL reach your goal, through a combination of experience, knowledge, persistence and availability at any moment to answer questions. If you hire Havey & Associates, inc., don't expect an easy approach. Expect a professional and thorough approach aimed at reaching your goal."

The Rev. Kent A. Mosebach, Retired Pastor
St. Paul's UCC
Oshkosh, Wisconsin

"Our Covenant Campaign was successful beyond any member's belief! Our Membership has always had the financial resources but it took Havey & Associates, inc.'s plan to connect the need with the giving. Many new relationships have been formed amongst members as well as a result of the Campaign. Havey & Associates, inc. and their secretarial services are the primary reasons for our success and we would not hesitate in future campaigns to partner with them again."

Joe Hobson, Campaign Coordinator
United Protestant Church
Grayslake, Illinois

"Havey & Associates, inc. did a superb job of fundraising consultation for our church's capital campaign. Their method worked especially well when we followed their plan. And we achieved our goal! Their work is "superb" because they believe in what they do, are realistic, pay attention to details with a passion and they don't just pursue excellence they are quality through and through. Lastly, Havey & Associates, inc. embody the Christian faith in their business and in their service to client churches. I recommend them most highly and without hesitation."

The Rev. Dr. David Russell, Senior Pastor
United Protestant Church
Grayslake, Illinois

"Havey & Associates, inc. elevated our sights considerably, helping us raise far more than we thought possible - and far more than we EVER could have raised on our own! They were persistent, consistent, clear, above-board, professional, and worth every dollar we invested in their services. Their system of one-on-one home visits also helped build better relationships among members of our congregation. We owe the success of our campaign to Havey & Associates, inc."

The Rev. Jeffrey L. Phillips, Pastor
St. John United Church of Christ
Arlington Heights, Illinois

"When we decided to pursue a capital campaign, we were unsure if a fundraising consultant was needed to help us. After speaking with several companies, it became clear that Havey & Associates, inc.'s approach and methodology offered us the best opportunity to reach our financial goals. Steve Havey helped us to expand our thinking and indeed provided us with the expertise, leadership and drive to make our FAITH and FAMILY Campaign successful. To date, we have exceeded our intermediate goal and hope to reach our challenge goal as the final pledges are received. I strongly recommend Havey & Associates, inc. for fundraising campaigns and wouldn't hesitate to hire Havey & Associates, inc. again to assist our church."

Tim Wayman, Stewardship Chair and FAITH and FAMILY Campaign Steering Committee Member
St. John United Church of Christ
Arlington Heights, Illinois

"We can't believe what we accomplished in the seven months we worked with Havey & Associates, inc. To date, we have raised $534,900 in pledges against our minimum goal of $325,000 -- and, we still have members that are contemplating their commitments. Everyone is pleased with the way our "Faith and Family" Campaign was conducted and that our total pledges exceeded what most members expected. We couldn't have done it without Havey & Associates, inc. The best thing we did was to hire Havey & Associates, inc. to run our Campaign. The second best thing was to hire Havey & Associates, inc. to handle the administrative duties for the Campaign. They kept us on track and were always there to assist us. An unexpected bonus of the Campaign was the camaraderie that developed among the committees, new members and volunteers visits with members. We are thankful to Havey & Associates,inc. for working with us to make our "Faith and Family" Campaign a success."

Judy Kriston, Campaign Coordinator
St. John United Church of Christ

"We at New Horizon United Church of Christ are very grateful to Havey and Associates, inc. for assisting us with our Building Campaign. They helped us every step of the way from day one to the end of our fundraising. They were in constant contact throughout the whole campaign making sure everything was running smoothly and that deadlines were being met. They are wonderful to work with, extremely efficient and always there to help. I would highly recommend Havey & Associates, inc. for any fundraising event you may have."

Robin Lemkuil, Campaign Coordinator
New Horizons UCC
Farmington, Wisconsin

"We are a very small congregation (68 Families/ 120 Members) and we were very concerned about our ability to raise the funds we were looking for to complete our remodeling project. Havey & Associates, inc. is extremely well organized and they guided us through this project on schedule which resulted in meeting our goals. We are sure we could not have done this campaign on our own. Havey & Associates, inc. has the tools and experience which was the major reason for our success. Havey & Associates, inc. were fun to work with and made a difficult project reasonably easy and the main thing is they helped us to successfully complete our project. We are glad we chose Havey & Associates, inc. and recommend them to anyone that is considering a fundraising campaign."

Shirley Birkholz & Bob Blohm, Campaign Co-Chairpersons
New Horizons UCC
Farmington, Wisconsin

"You worked your genius again in directing the fundraising efforts of New Horizon United Church of Christ in the town of Farmington, Wisconsin. New Horizon is a small rural church, which after merging three area United Church of Christ congregations into the church now named New Horizon UCC, a core of members had the vision, and were determined to build a new church structure to meet future dreams and needs. I had worked with Steve in the past and was favorable about contracting him to serve as our fundraising counsel. As soon as a contract was signed, he and his team took charge, and an organization within the church was put into place to accomplish our needs. Working closing with our team, Havey & Associates, inc. made certain no detail was overlooked. Together we accomplished what few thought was possible. Many heartfelt thanks to Havey & Associates, inc. for a job well done."

The Rev. Robert P. Seater, Pastor
New Horizons UCC
Farmington, Wisconsin

"In 2001, our small church decided to build a new facility on a new site. The capital campaign raised $235,000 and we built a lovely, albeit small, church that fit our needs in 2002. In 2006, we all realized that we desperately needed room for a congregation that was more than double in size, and children whose number had risen from 12 to 56. Our members had a sour taste from the previous fundraising firm we had used, but we decided to give Havey & Associates, inc. a chance, based on their reputation. The organization, training, techniques, & continuous support from Havey & Associates, inc. have paid off wonderfully for us. We raised $761,000 and now we will be able to supply ample space for our growing congregation who responded to the careful, honest, and proven techniques of Havey & Associates, inc. We are quite grateful for your experience, expertise and support. Utilizing Havey & Associates, inc. to raise this amount of money from people who had been asked to support the initial building of this church as well as those who are fairly new to us, has been a very positive experience. If we need to expand again in 5 years, we know exactly to whom we will turn!"

The Rev. Karen M. Steffens, Pastor
St. John's UCC
Merton, Wisconsin

"After being a campaign chairperson for our last capital campaign, I was curious whether the Havey & Associates, inc. approach would work in our small church family. Being a small business owner myself, I gave the Havey & Associates, inc. plan my full support. By doing so, I discovered that our committee members found it much easier than our previous campaign to raise the necessary funds for our current expansion plans. The results were amazing! We raised $761,000 - more than 3 times the commitments from our previous campaign efforts. We exceeded our intermediate goal substantially with virtually the same number of giving units by using the professional Havey & Associates, inc. approach! I would definitely recommend Havey & Associates, inc. for your campaign efforts. Their professionalism and care for our congregation were outstanding!"

Cliff Fischer, Campaign Co-Chairperson
St. John's UCC
Merton, Wisconsin

"Havey & Associates, inc. have helped us at First Congregational United Church of Christ in Eagle River, WI, have two very successful Capital Campaigns. The first Campaign was in 1996 and the second Campaign we just concluded (May, 2008). We contacted Steve for our second Campaign due to the success of the first Campaign. I can't imagine trying to undertake a Campaign on our own. Havey & Associates, inc. is extremely organized and really keep on top of things. Their guidance and support were only a phone call away. I would recommend them to any organization looking at not only meeting their goals but exceeding them."

Paula Hendrickson, Campaign Coordinator
First Congregational United Church of Christ
Eagle River, Wisconsin

"It has been a pleasure to work with Havey & Associates, inc. in our ROSE Campaign to "Renew Our Spiritual Environment" so that we can renovate our 1924 sanctuary, fellowship hall and kitchen, add air conditioning and also provide capital funds for two global and local mission projects. Havey & Associates, inc. kept us on track, listened to us when we needed to tweak the program for our own context, and was always there for support. With Havey & Associates, inc.'s help, we met our Challenge Goal and so will be able to accomplish our entire project! The congregation is energized, excited and positively anticipates both the physical renewal of our space and the spiritual renewal of our life together. Thank you, Havey & Associates, inc.!"

The Rev. Patricia M. Tucker, Pastor
First Congregational United Church of Christ
Eagle River, Wisconsin

"Our congregation spent more than a year researching and interviewing numerous firms before settling on Havey & Associates, inc. for our first capital campaign in a generation. The results proved that it was worth the wait. What we appreciated about working with Havey & Associates, inc. was their clear and disciplined approach, keeping us on task and on schedule. Major funding efforts are often uncomfortable for a congregation used to informal ways of doing things, and this level of a well-defined strategy was new to many of our parishioners. We occasionally would be tempted to delay or modify a task, but they kindly and effectively reminded us of the plan they had laid out for us, why it mattered, and then persuaded us to trust their judgment and experience. In retrospect, we chose the right firm to assist us. Havey & Associates, inc. stretched us, challenged us, helped us to see past our assumptions to the possibilities of what could be done, and assisted us throughout the process. We made the best choice."

The Rev. Dale Stohre, Minister
Christ Church United Church Of Christ
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"We found Havey & Associates, inc. to be a great guide on our recent capital campaign. They were organized, clear, responsive and helped all of us stay on top of our responsibilities too. It is easy to think that in hiring a consultant you are hiring someone else to raise money for your church. Havey & Associates, inc. helped us realize the best way to raise money is for members of the church to band together to raise the money amongst themselves. They helped us but we did it! In a tough economy we came within a few thousand dollars of our challenge goal; significantly more than any of our leaders thought possible."

The Rev. Winton Boyd, Minister
Orchard Ridge United Church Of Christ
Madison, Wisconsin

"I'm pleased to have worked with Havey & Associates, inc. on Orchard Ridge UCC's "Seeds for the Next Generation" campaign. It was a relatively short period of time, beginning in January 2010, with all but a very few pledge cards submitted by early June. Our goal was to raise funds to renovate our 50-year-old church building, with a significant portion dedicated to a mission gift. Havey & Associates, inc. was always optimistic, thoroughly explaining their campaign plan, laying out a clear and specific timeline, and providing excellent, efficient secretarial support. Their recommendation of recruiting team members from our congregation and assigning them to visit other members was one of the keys to our success. It resulted in good conversations about our goals and mission, as well as closer personal connections throughout the congregation. Their graphic services - Knickelbine Design produced a beautiful brochure that clearly explained our vision and campaign. Questions and concerns were addressed promptly. Without their help, I'm certain that our small congregation would not have raised a surprising $1,575,000!"

Vicki Nonn, Campaign Coordinator
Orchard Ridge United Church Of Christ
Madison, Wisconsin

"Havey & Associates, inc. was instrumental in helping us achieve our results at Salem UCC. I knew all along that they were the capable hands I wanted our church to be in, and I am glad our members were able to see that, too. They were attentive and responsive to the particular needs and personality of our congregation. We would not have been able to accomplish our goals in a timely manner, were it not for their help, guidance, and encouragement."

The Rev. Dr. Mark E. Yurs, Pastor
Salem United Church of Christ
Verona, Wisconsin

"On behalf of Salem United Church of Christ and our entire membership, I wanted to take a moment to thank you personally for all of the incredible work Havey & Associates, inc. provided us in making our Continuing the Commitment Campaign an unqualified success. Like many organizations that had not done a formal fundraising campaign before, we were unsure of the need for a company like yours to help us with our campaign. Very early on, anyone involved with our campaign began to appreciate its magnitude and how quickly we would have been overwhelmed had we not had your firm's guidance and expertise. We were able to accomplish in a few months what would have easily taken years to complete on our own. Your program and step-by-step process made a complicated task seem simple. The ease at which the elements of our campaign fell into place made it exciting to be a part of. Most importantly, you were there with us every single day from the first meeting to the final one to make sure that we accomplished our goal. I absolutely believe that we would not have had anywhere near the success we were able to achieve in the timeframe in which it was accomplished had it not been for your team's assistance and its dedication to help us reach our goals. I wholeheartedly endorse your team, your system, and your firm to anyone who is considering a fundraising campaign. Salem thanks you for your dedication, and I thank you for your friendship and your counsel."

Chris Wilbricht, Campaign Coordinator
Salem United Church of Christ
Verona, Wisconsin

"I know now without your assistance we would not be where we are now with our campaign. It took me awhile to buy into the system and the money spent -- now I know it was the right decision. GOD BLESS!"

Robert J. Zurbuchen, Congregational Chair
Salem United Church of Christ
Verona, Wisconsin

"I simply wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the splendid plan that Havey & Associates, Inc. put in place and the guidance you provided during the strategically important steps of our Campaign. You have been an insistent and persuasive consultant. Your years of successful experience and clear–cut convictions enabled us to approach the challenge with confidence. I am sure our paths will be crossing time and again. Even so, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Havey & Associates, Inc. for everything that you have done to make our campaign a successful venture together into our second century."
