parishes and schools

At Generis, we understand the unique opportunities for evangelization through the growth of parishes and parish schools. Whether you serve a small, medium, or large parish within a diocese, you may face a persistent gap between your resources and God-given vision, hindering your call to serve as Christ intended.

Our dedicated team at Generis works closely with pastors, parish leaders, school boards, and diocesan officials to cultivate a culture of generosity within Catholic churches, parish schools, and diocesan communities. This culture, grounded in Christian discipleship and scripture, fuels mission impact and provides sustainable funding for your God-given vision to reach present and future generations. Together, we bridge the gap and empower your mission to thrive.

Accelerate Generosity in your Parish or School

Our methodology for fostering a culture of generosity transcends compartmentalized strategies. Instead, it is a comprehensive approach that integrates your ministries, identifies potential barriers to generosity, and enhances mission alignment. Drawing from the rich Catholic tradition of stewardship, we align your parish and school’s spirit of giving with the Catholic Church’s longstanding commitment to evangelization, Christian education, social justice, and service to the poor. Together, we build a thriving Christian community that embodies the generous spirit of Christian discipleship.

“…Generis prepared our Leadership Team with great energy and encouragement, as well as clear ideas to perform their tasks of gathering people in prayer and discernment…with your help, we exceeded our campaign goals and more than doubled what the Diocese imagined we could raise….”

— Fr. Ryan Harpole, Pastor of St. Joseph Catholic Church and School, Bowling Green, KY

How We Help

At the core of every Catholic leadership team lies a profound desire to impact the world for the greater glory of God – animating the divine vision bestowed upon their church. Our goal is not simply to boost funding but to facilitate a spiritual transformation in your community that reinforces the principles of Catholic stewardship: the sharing of time, talent, and treasure. In this way, we help your church community reflect the selfless love of Christ, fostering a culture of generosity that supports your God-given mission and vision for the world.

Generosity Assessments & Feasibility Studies

How much can your parish or school raise in a capital campaign? Feasibility studies will help you discern your parish’s financial potential in a campaign and the congregation's readiness to embrace the parish vision and fund it. Our assessment studies your church’s effectiveness and reveals new opportunities for creating a culture of generosity. Think of it like an x-ray into the giving perspective of the church.

Parish and/or School Capital Campaigns

No matter the size of your God-inspired plans, it can be daunting to think about finding the necessary resources to make it happen. With Generis, you’re not alone. Our customized campaign approach will help you assess and reframe your current reality, allowing you to reach your goals while also establishing a foundation for increased generosity.

Diocesan Planning & Campaigns

Ignite a spirit of generosity and achieve extraordinary impact across your entire diocese. With our proven strategies, comprehensive coordination, and experienced team, we'll guide you in raising substantial funds to support diverse diocesan-wide initiatives, bolstering parishes, schools, and vital ministries. Embrace the power of unity as we unite all communities under a common vision, ensuring a thriving future for your entire diocesan family.

Generosity Development

No matter the size of your church, its needs can increase or change from year to year. By studying your numbers and interviewing key leadership, we can help you understand the giving patterns of your church. We take those results to then build a flourishing generosity culture that will leverage the best aspects of your church, reflect your values and DNA, and establish effective tools to further build that culture of generosity.


Sometimes we need more help than just campaign advice. One-on-one guidance, encouragement and accountability with a coach brings out the best in us and accelerates our ability to execute those big, "only God" dreams. The Generis coaching experience is designed to align with your greatest needs and is delivered over a period of time that makes the most sense for you.

Peer Collectives

Ministry is more fun when you don’t do it alone! A collective is a virtual peer-to-peer experience where you will journey through a specific set of ideas or challenges for a set period of time. It’s a great way to break through those occasional logjams. And, if you’re not quite sure you’re ready for one-on-one coaching, this is a great way to test the waters.

How It Works


A highly skilled Generosity Strategist will personally meet with you to understand your parish or diocese’s unique characteristics and culture and assess the existing culture of generosity and stewardship. We aim to comprehend your church’s current condition and explore your future aspirations and objectives.


Our seasoned professionals will collaboratively identify the appropriate path for your parish or diocese. Together, we will devise a unique stewardship strategy rooted in Catholic values to inspire and mobilize the faithful toward greater generosity.


Your Generosity Strategist will guide you through every step of implementation, ensuring sustainable success aligned with the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church. We work hand in hand with your team as you strive to reach and exceed your stewardship goals, fostering a spirit of generous giving within your community.

Budgets & Tithing

Are the people in your church struggling in their giving journeys? Would you even know it if they were?

Biblical stewardship and generosity is a journey that goes beyond the tithe and church budget. However, too often, we see local church leaders unintentionally limit their kingdom reach because their vision is tied to budgetary goals.

In this resource, we unpack the perspectives and vocabulary that might be limiting the spiritual growth of the people in your church and what it means to steward the resources that God has given His people.
