Worship Facilities

A Capital Plan reveals the true cost of properly maintaining the physical assets that have been entrusted to the leaders of churches, synagogues, and temples. Proper maintenance and well-timed replacement of building & infrastructure systems all play an important role in protecting property values and providing congregations with a positive worship experience.

Malibu Presbyterian Church

"Association Reserves has prepared a number of Capital Plan Updates for Malibu Pres through the years. When our church burned down in October 2007, the photographic inventory from their recent site inspection became an invaluable resource in our settlement with the insurance company. We continue to count on Association Reserve for periodic updates so that we can be prepared to properly care for our newly rebuilt facilities."

The Salvation Army - Kroc Community Centers

"Association Reserves has played a vital role in helping us make prudent decisions for the fiscal & capital health of our large community centers. The Capital Plans are thorough and the data provided has proven to be consistently accurate. Thanks in large part to the efforts of Association Reserves, the Salvation Army has created fully funded capital replacement plans for over $500 million in complex properties."

The Salvation Army – Central Territory

"The Capital Plan was a significant tool for the Salvation Army Kroc Centers to understand the necessary funding needed to maintain our resources. Association Reserves' depth of research on the life expectancy of our assets was very thorough; outlining specific capital requirements to ensure our assets can be maintained and replaced for years to come. We especially appreciated the level of care and follow-up that was provided after the report was delivered."

"Our experience with Association Reserves was outstanding from start to finish. We researched 3 other companies before contracting with them. We found them to be responsive and professional. It is refreshing to work with a team that sets clear expectations and meets them every time. We are an active campus and the on-site team was flexible in scheduling the inspections. The report is detailed and comprehensive. Our Buildings & Grounds Committee refers to the report on a monthly basis and updates are made two or more times a year to the working document. We finally have a tool that enables us to forecast upcoming costs. The report’s value to us substantiates the expense of its creation."
