Achieve Your Dreams, Meet Your Needs

The ultimate goal for every Catholic school administrator is to have classrooms filled with engaged students. Each school has a unique path to reaching that goal. For some, it’s new turf on the athletic fields to attract the community’s top athletes and give them a competitive edge. For others, it’s an updated fine arts center or STEM lab to compete with local public schools. And for others still, the path to success is a new roof, windows, parking lot, or HVAC system. The point is, no matter what you need to meet the needs of the students, the Ruotolo Associates team is ready to help get you there!

We pride ourselves on excellent client service and collaborative efforts. Your staff knows your community; our staff incorporates best practices in fundraising and planning. Together we will help you raise the financial resources you need to achieve your vision and attract more students to your school.

We recognize that your school is an organization with many needs, dreams, and stakeholders. Our goal is to assist your community in achieving its needs and dreams. While our core business is philanthropy; to accomplish the major projects you envision, we offer wraparound services to help you identify strategic organizational opportunities to continue the positive momentum for years to come.

Using research and data to guide our capital campaigns is what set us apart 40 years ago. We are proud to say that we have formed a partnership with the country’s foremost Catholic school market data research and strategic planning firm, Meitler, to deliver seamless services to our clients.
