Divine New Church Fundraising Franchise Opportunity Is Launched by Walsh and Associates

BURNSVILLE, MN--(Marketwire - Nov 3, 2011) - Franchise opportunities with a spiritual mission have been rare, if not non-existent up until now. But a groundbreaking franchise offering is now available for the person who yearns to combine a passion for their faith with an entrepreneurial endeavor. The franchise's focus is fundraising for churches and specifically, helping them to conduct capital campaigns to address major needs. The franchise itself is unique on two levels: it is the first of its kind in the world and it helps churches thrive and grow thanks to the efforts of spiritually and success motivated franchisees.

Franchisees of Walsh & Associates, based in Burnsville, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis and St. Paul, have the opportunity to build a strong and successful business focused on helping churches raise funds for such things as new building, building expansion, renovation, plant maintenance, debt reduction and other critical needs.

Walsh & Associates has developed a turnkey system that has enabled capital campaigns they conduct for churches to consistently achieve higher levels of success and raise more money relative to church contribution income than other alternatives, according to Walsh. "We not only have been able to achieve remarkable results for churches, but also have developed a way to share our appreciable expertise with our new franchisees."

Since Walsh & Associates was founded, the company has conducted successful capital campaigns for hundreds of churches throughout the United States which resulted in raising hundreds of millions of dollars. On average, Walsh & Associates raises over 3.2 times the annual church contribution income in our church capital campaigns while other professionally driven campaigns raise only 2.3 times the annual church contribution income by comparison. Churches that run their own campaigns typically raise even less: 1.7 times annual contribution income.

"The system we have created and improved over the years works effectively and efficiently," Walsh declares. "The Walsh approach also yields the most impressive financial results. Because of this, we have earned a stellar reputation among churches across the country and our franchisees will benefit from the opportunity to use our well-established, highly regarded system and name."

Each franchise territory is guaranteed to contain 1,000 larger churches as defined by average annual dollar level of giving at a minimum of $250,000. "Our franchisees will not only benefit from our well-proven system of directing church capital campaigns, but from our on-going lead generation efforts level as well." Walsh affirms.

"Our franchisees learn how to conduct a capital campaign step-by-step from start to finish. Not only that, but we have developed our own customized campaign management software with data base, template materials and numerous reports and other features to assist our franchise owners in expertly directing church capital campaigns," Walsh revealed. "We have put everything in place that will benefit franchisees to raise the most money for churches at the lowest cost per dollar raised. Our track record is compelling and as a result, our franchisees will be warmly welcomed by churches that want and need our help.

"With the current economic climate as a harsh reality," Walsh points out, "effective, cost-efficient fundraising naturally becomes more necessary than ever for churches. Consequently, we anticipate a strong, consistent demand for our services."
