At Kirby-Smith Associates, we recognize these various ways of measuring success. As a firm, we secure more gifts and more funds from individual contributors through our program of Creative Ways to Give. Our 78 years of experience has given us the expertise to ensure our clients raise an amount well over annual giving, without high pressure tactics; normally two, three, or more times – far more than our competitors in similar situations.

However, Kirby-Smith Associates goes above and beyond to measure success by meeting and exceeding your goals and objectives. Not every objective can be accomplished solely by a capital or increased offering campaign. Often times, a series of goals need met to ultimately achieve your objectives. Objectives often vary by situation and needs. The objective of an inner-city church may be keeping the doors open or maintaining facilities to feed the homeless. Many times building, renovating, or paying debt are the first of many steps to meet a long-term objective. At times, new priorities and objectives are thrust upon a congregation due to a fire or natural disaster.

No matter what your objectives, our goal is to join with you as partners in success in a long-term relationship to Bring Your Hopes to Life. The following success stories are a sampling of churches Kirby-Smith Associates had the privilege to serve and assist in meeting their objectives:
