HELPING CATHOLIC MINISTRIES RAISE MORE MONEY
How would you mission change if you had more money?
Who is Petrus Development?
In 2005, Petrus Development was founded to help Catholic ministries build sustainable development programs.
Since then, we have worked with over 150 Catholic ministries and raised over $500M for campus ministries, high schools, universities, pro-life causes and more.LET'S CONNECT TODAY
The Annual Manual helps nonprofit organizations build a strong foundation for their development program by taking the best practices for building an annual fund and adapting them to the unique structure of each individual organization.
The Petrus Sustainable Development consulting program is designed to help you take that next step. Our experienced team of Petrus consultants spends time with our clients providing direction and coaching specifically tailored to your ministry.
A Campaign Planning Study, or Feasibility Study, is critical to determining whether your organization is ready to launch a successful capital campaign. Petrus conducts a comprehensive Study to help you answer the important questions for planning.
Petrus consultants have expertise in all aspects of service needed for successful campaigns including feasibility studies, volunteer recruitment and management, special events, campaign literature and donor recognition and major gift solicitations.

"I am grateful to everyone from Petrus that I've had the pleasure to work with. Our first Leadership Council meeting this spring took some work but it turned out to be a big success. Also, we raised $13,000 from our Senior Gift Program, and almost $12,000 from our matching funds weekend in April. We are working the plan and will continue to get better!"

"I just wanted to express my warm gratitude for our work together which has made such an impact on me and on St. Albert the Great University Parish. Four years ago, as I started this assignment, I could not have imagined being where we are today. In just a little more than two years since hiring Petrus and hiring a full-time development director, we seen very substantial growth in overall giving, total donors, and total number of gifts. We have built relationships with a new Advisory Council and hundreds of alumni, parents, and other supporters. We're now in the planning phase of a capital campaign and I see a lot of opportunity in the coming years."
