LPi Adds Staff to Support Growth of Online Giving Tool WeShare

NEW BERLIN, Wis., Aug. 8, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Liturgical Publications Inc (LPi), a stewardship communication company providing print and online services to Catholic churches and other organizations nationwide, has announced the addition of two new staff members to support the rapid growth of its WeShare online donation management tool.

Kathy Minnihan, business development specialist, helps churches, dioceses, and nonprofit organizations grow their stewardship programs and donor base. Karina Simon, engagement manager, is responsible for helping customers develop and strengthen their stewardship programs, capital campaigns, and nonprofit fundraisers.

Both support LPi’s online donation management tool, WeShare, which allows parishioners to set up recurring payments; allocate varying amounts for different church funds; view their giving histories, and choose to use their checking account, debit card, or credit card. Church staff can accept pledge payments, run capital campaigns, and manage event ticketing entirely online — with much less time spent on bookkeeping then the manual systems they may now be using.

Simon and Minnihan previously worked closely with one another at another organization that supplies online giving tools to Catholic churches — Minnihan as director of sales and partner relations and Simon as director of account management and operations — and bring with them to LPi a wealth of experience in the management and growth of parish stewardship and fundraising.

Minnihan is based in New Jersey, with a national focus on transitioning accounts using PledgeConnect, an online giving company LPi acquired in early 2013, to WeShare. “My simultaneous experience in sales, account management, business development, and partner relations gives me the advantage of knowing what our customers need from us in every phase of our relationship,” she said.

Based in New York City, Simon supports WeShare accounts nationwide. “My experience gives me the knowledge necessary to assist nonprofit and faith-based organizations in developing a plan to help them realize their goals,” said Simon. “When organizations are fighting for every donor dollar, the importance of a customized strategic plan should never be overlooked.”

WeShare processes donations for hundreds of churches, dioceses, and other nonprofits nationwide. For more information, visit www.4LPi.com/WeShare.
