Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools Education Foundation

Funding Support

Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools (MACS) Education Foundation engaged PMA Consulting to conduct a strategic development assessment to determine what factors and messages were effecting donor engagement throughout the MACS system. PMA analyzed giving statistics, reviewed communications materials and strategy, conducted internal interviews, led focus groups of current and former parents, developed a parent survey, and analyzed survey results. This in-depth analysis led to recommendations for increasing annual giving and donor engagement, with specific suggestions for implementation.

“MACS Education Foundation came to a crossroads and needed guidance for which path to take. Thankfully, PMA Consulting was there to shed light onto which direction would take us where we needed to go. Their findings helped the organization formulate its first strategic plan and launch a special campaign to drive more revenue. Furthermore, the year following PMA Consulting’s work, the MACS Education Foundation had a record year by surpassing its fundraising goal by 10% and increasing donor participation by 10%.

Working with the PMA Consulting team, most especially Cindy Clark, was a pleasure. From the very first meeting to the final presentation, they handled every detail with care and top notch professionalism. I felt very secure with how they interacted with the board members and stakeholders throughout the entire process. If the need arises again, I will not hesitate to hire Patton and his exemplary team.”
