New Hope Solutions provide the Church with products to help individuals and communities grow closer to Christ and to their parish in new ways. From fund raising campaigns that are critical to fulfilling our mission, to content that will help individuals deal with added anxiety and change, OSV is prepared to support our customers and help them on their journey to return and renew. We have solutions that can help lead a church to write a new playbook that honors their mission and the communities they serve and makes the most of their organization’s resources— their people, financial capital, and social capital, leaning on relationship and trust.
NEW HOPE HANDBOOK AND HEALTH CHECK
With our program your parish will receive a handbook that provides your parish with tools, resources, and solutions that your parish can use now and in the future in order to recover, refresh, restart, and renew. Also included is a launch webinar and a New Hope Health Check survey, which allows OSV to analyze what we, at OSV, can do to best serve and support your parish with our programs.
OFFERTORY RECOVERY AND STABILIZATION PROGRAM
As we adjust to a new normal, recovering and stabilizing offertory will be top priority for all parishes. Knowing this, OSV has created a turn-key offertory program in order to stabilize income and provide a way for parishioners to contribute. In addition to offertory recovery and stabilization, our program will help your parish increase communication, reaffirm your mission and impact, leverage technology, motivate, show empathy and concern, and acknowledge generosity.
90 DAY CAPITAL INFUSION AND FINANCIAL PLEDGE IMPACT PROGRAMS
Depending on your parish’s circumstances, OSV’s 90 Day Capital Infusion Program or the Financial Pledge Impact Program (12 – 18 months) may be the answer. Different than offertory recovery, this program offers best-practice-based methods, aimed at creating an infusion of capital to supplement and support a parish’s financial condition, to meet operational expenses, fixed costs,
replenish savings or any other financial need. The programs are implementation-ready, efficient, and affordable fundraising with a positive return on investment.
FAST START PARISH VISION PLAN
We took our full OSV Parish Vision Plan, and created a “fast start” version, so your parish can get on your feet more quickly. With this all-inclusive plan, we will provide your parish with direction and virtual workshops covering topics like Hospitality, Evangelization, Communication, Outreach & Service, and more. From here, we’ll help your parish put a plan together and communicate that plan through designed, printed, and mailed materials to your parishioners.
ENHANCED ONLINE GIVING
OSV’s enhanced Online Giving offering provides a convenient way for parishioners to make financial contributions, and it relieves church staffs from managing secure bank account information at the same time. Administration is simple and easy. Online Giving automatically integrates with OSV Church Manager and can export data for updating records in virtually any parishioner data management system, so contributions are recorded and attached to parishioner records. Start up is quick and easy and OSV provides free tools for communicating and promoting to parishioners.
ENGAGE AND EDUCATE
Your parish, school, and families need turnkey solutions that are flexible and come in print as well as eBook format with robust online tools. OSV’s Catholic curriculum solutions deliver that and so much more. When you adopt any of these curriculum programs, you get FREE access to eBooks and online support.
ANNUAL SCHOOL FUNDING CAMPAIGN
OSV’s School Annual Fund will expand philanthropic efforts and connect donors to your school mission. During the six-week process, OSV consultants will work with your school to determine how best to adapt materials to your school needs. We have made the process simple, so only a minimal amount of work is necessary to begin a School Annual Fund or improve your current annual fund efforts.
ADVANCED CHURCH MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
With OSV Church Manager, experience a Catholic church management solution that offers all the benefits without the burden. Our solution will save your staff time and money. Input from parishes just like yours has inspired OSV to make our product intuitive and easy to use, so your staff doesn’t require a PhD in technology. With everything your team needs in a single system, you can stay informed about your parish, stay connected with parishioners, and easily maintain records, finances, and funds.
NEW PARISH WEBSITES
OSV Websites were built with your parish in mind. Experience a solution that engages, informs, and inspires parishioners and new visitors alike to become actively involved with your parish and the Church. Consider your website a digital front door that is welcoming to new visitors and keeps current parishioners knowing they are truly included in all the happenings at the parish. With our simple and intuitive platform, even the least tech savvy staff member will be able to have your parish up and running on the internet in no time.
RENEW YOUR BOOK CLUB WITH HOPE
A virtual book club is one way that parishes can foster connections with and among their parishioners during this time of physical distancing and help them to grow closer to Christ and his Church. The OSV New Hope Book Club is a collection of books that parishes can use to either start or refresh their book club and meet in an online setting to discuss relevant topics when other forms of in-person fellowship are precluded.
