Nic Prenger is blessed with a wonderful wife and three happy, healthy kids. In 2018, he left his job as president of one of the largest campaign fundraising firms in the nation to follow his passion... using technology to make the fundraising process more effective and relevant to today's donors.
He launched Prenger Solutions Group and now leads a team of experts who help dioceses, schools and churches modernize their development programs. It's the greatest job in the world.
Over the years, Nic has provided counsel to many of this country's premier Catholic institutions. From the Archdioceses of Galveston-Houston, Minneapolis & Saint Paul, Omaha, Kansas City, Denver and Seattle, to the Dioceses of Wichita, Nashville, La Crosse, Orange and Phoenix. He has counseled St. Michael's Norbertine Abbey in Orange County, the Aim Higher Foundation and the Dynamic Catholic Institute.
Through his work, Nic saw that too many organizations were relying on outdated practices and using obsolete technology - and achieving poor results. They were failing to reach new donors or young people and were increasingly reliant upon a shrinking pool of aging donors.
Worse, there was no authoritative set of data that could illustrate the full scope of the problem or point toward potential solutions. Diocesan development offices, in particular, were flying blind without access to benchmarks, historical trends or up-to-date data.
So Nic set out to change all of that. He formed Prenger Solutions Group and immediately launched the Diocesan Benchmarking Survey, a major undertaking aimed at giving diocesan development professionals the data they need to succeed and deliver better results.
At the same time, Nic recruited a team of experts in digital fundraising, donor software, social media, email marketing, website design and landing page optimization. Guided by the insights gained from their comprehensive research, PSG experts provide digital fundraising solutions to dioceses, schools and churches across the country.
A native of Carroll, Iowa, Nic is a graduate of Creighton University and the University of Iowa Law School. A former board member for the Magis Catholic Teacher Corps, Nic served on the National Catholic Educational Association’s national advisory council for leadership development. He also serves on the stewardship committee for Christ the King Parish in Omaha, where he belongs along with his wife, Holly, and their three children.
Nic’s leadership experience includes working for the U.S. Senate Finance Committee in Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
