Testimonials

Ms. Barbara Shea Collins

"What can I say?  When Bannon Associates, Inc. became our advisors, we doubled our Appeal revenue in the first year!  Although we continue to be delighted with the Appeal results each year, Bill always presents new and innovative ideas for the next year.  He is not content to provide one 'flash in the pan' great year.  With his help, we have maintained and significantly surpassed our initial growth, and look forward to a solid and ever-increasing Annual Catholic Appeal in the Archdiocese of Chicago."

Mr. Bob Fleming

"The Bannon program is excellent. We obtained a 40%+ increase in our offertory. Before January of 1999, we were averaging $11,000 to $12,000 per week. Since January of 1999, we are now averaging $20,000 per week. The program was very beneficial. Bill Bannon was a good guy to work with and I highly recommend the program on an annual basis for the Archdiocese to offer."

Rev. Msgr. Dennis O'Neil

"The program provided phenomenal results. Prior to the program, our offertory averaged $6,500 per week. We are now averaging $13,000 per week. We went from 84 families using envelopes to 1,000 families using envelopes on a weekly basis! The program has been very successful and is climbing, not dropping off as time passes. I would recommend the program be offered by the Archdiocese every year, in the Fall. It would be very helpful to the parishes. It would also bring in more income to the Archdiocese via the Cathedraticum and by increased Annual Appeal goals."

Rev. Robert Milbauer

"I was very happy with it. We had 50% increase in income which is very good. I have recommended it to other pastors. I think that maybe parishes should pay for it if offered on an Archdiocesan basis. Some parishes may have a difficult time because they are not set up computer wise and staff wise. I would agree however that the Archdiocese should be offering this program on an annual basis."

Rev. Msgr. Padraic Loftus

"As pastor of Saint Mel Parish, I highly recommend this program which was introduced in June of 1999. It has been very successful for our parish. Almost a year after its introduction, we have maintained an increase of approximately 25% in our offertory. I am grateful to both Bill Bannon and the Archdiocese for introducing our parish to this program."
