Specializing in consultation for Catholic Congregations of Women and Men Religious
Development Consultants exist to assist organizations in their understanding that development is primarily a ministry to promote mission. We do this with a special preference for Catholic congregations of women and men religious.
We believe that through an organization’s development program, many people can be invited to participate in its mission through the sharing of their time, talent and treasure.
Unique in the non profit consulting world, Sisters Madeline Franze and Mary McFadden bring more than 50 years of experience to their consulting practice. As Co-Directors of Development for the Sisters of Saint Joseph, Philadelphia, PA from 1988-2003, they led efforts to raise more than $40 million.
In 2003, aware of the specific needs of Catholic congregations of women and men religious, Sisters Madeline and Mary were missioned by the Sisters of Saint Joseph to concentrate their energies in a full time consulting practice and founded Development Consultants. With a focus on assisting Catholic congregations of religious women and men, they also specialize in working with small non profits.
With a firm belief that development is a mission-focused ministry, Madeline and Mary assist their clients in making the organizational mission the primary message of all development activity.
