INNOVATION AND INSPIRATION HAVE BEEN INEXTRICABLY TIED TOGETHER IN 2020. WHILE THE CHALLENGES HAVE BEEN INTENSE, THE RESILIENCE OF OUR CLIENTS AND THE NONPROFIT COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE HAS BEEN REMARKABLE.

Looking ahead to 2021, we foresee tremendous opportunity for renewal among parishes and schools throughout the country through the fulfillment of stewardship and campaign potential. Social service and health care nonprofits are poised for transformative growth building on the sustained commitment of this year.

In February 2020, our work with the Diocese of Phoenix yielded $120 million for evangelization and discipleship, exceeding our $100 million goal.

Chief Operating Officer

My experience with Ruotolo has been phenomenal. When I signed a contract with Ruotolo, I figured I would get competence and experience. When the pandemic hit, I realized that I had much more. Ruotolo has given me their competence, experience, compassion, a listening ear, and perspective. I could not ask for more during a challenging yet successful year.
