Catholic Parish and Diocesan Campaign Projects:

CCS is a leader in directing transformational, multimillion-dollar raising campaigns for Catholic dioceses and parishes. Diocesan campaigns are driven by a team of dedicated CCS professionals serving as parish campaign directors. Each director is responsible for managing multiple parish campaigns at one time, contributing to overall campaign goals. Directors partner with on-site campaign executives, fellow parish campaign directors, parish pastors, parishioner volunteers, and staff to carry out a phased and highly focused campaign plan.

This type of partnership and work requires Directors to be working on-site at the client's location Monday-Friday, including nights and occasional weekends. Directors are required to attend in-person meetings with pastors and volunteers.

Diocesan campaigns are spiritually uplifting, locally mission based, multi-faceted, and fast-paced. The team-based environment is supportive, fun and provides for a rewarding organization, spiritual and engaged experience. Diocesan campaigns also offer directors the opportunity to make an incredible impact on mission in partnership with pastors, volunteers and donors while utilizing and growing personal leadership skills.
