Stewardship & Development

Our Mission | Stewardship & Development

The Pelican Group’s Mission Advancement Services is dedicated to the particular development and stewardship needs of the Church/dioceses, religious communities, social service agencies, seminaries, and other Catholic organizations.

As a leading provider of development services to the Catholic Church, for the past ten years we have provided counsel to more than 1000 Catholic organizations, representing a wide variety of program and campaign goals, traditions, and geographic locations.


ChurchThe Pelican Group’s approach integrates principles of Christian stewardship with the practice of professional fundraising.

We have developed a proven, successful methodology that is based on the theology of stewardship as defined in the United States Bishops’ pastoral letter, “Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response”.
