Stifel bankers have many years of experience in providing financing solutions to churches nationwide and have structured financings for many types of organizations – from multi-million-dollar mega-campuses to small country churches. Stifel bankers have represented some of America's largest churches, including Saddleback Community Church, Vineyard Community Church of Cincinnati, EagleBrook Church, Hunter Street Baptist Church, Northridge Church, and many others. But equally important are the smaller neighborhood churches. All are great organizations impacting their communities.
What this Stifel banker experience means to your organization is that our bankers understand your plans, your financial statements, your specific business challenges, and your organization's dreams. There is no learning curve when you work with a Stifel banker for your church financing needs. Being a national underwriter of churches allows us to transfer and apply our knowledge to your organization's project. We've seen what has worked and what hasn't for ministries across the country.
We bring you value-added information as it relates to not only financing, but also project planning, fundraising, and construction. We understand the issues religious organizations face, and we know how those issues can affect the outcome of a project.
And when it comes to church financing solutions, we can bring to the table the full complement of solutions to consider, whether that is long-term financing, short-term financing, or even tax-exempt options.
The experience referenced above related to the Religion Finance Practice includes the previous experience of the bankers who joined Stifel in March 2018.
