"When I arrived at St. Giles Parish and realized that a capital campaign for deferred facility repairs was imminent, I was confident that Foley Consulting could help us achieve our goals. After working with them on a very successful $7.5 million campaign effort at my previous parish, St. Paul of the Cross, I knew they would provide the guidance, enthusiasm and creativity needed for such an undertaking. While no priest welcomes the idea of a multi-million dollar fundraising effort, Foley Consulting truly makes the process comfortable and tailors the approach to the special and distinctive characteristics of the Parish. If my next assignment requires yet another campaign, I know who I will be calling!"

Reverend Carl Morello
