P&M Corporate Finance, LLC (“PMCF”) is pleased to announce that it served as the exclusive financial advisor to Breeze, LLC (“Breeze” or the “Company”) in its sale to Tithely in August 2021.
Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Breeze is a user-friendly web-based church management SaaS platform that serves over 9,000 church organizations.

Dean Sweetman, Co-Founder and CEO of Tithely, said, “With this acquisition of Breeze, Tithely will be able to add incredible technology and features to our arsenal of tools for churches, and we’re even more excited for the wonderful team of nearly 50 employees who will join the Tithely family.”
Breeze selected PMCF to serve as its exclusive advisor and investment banker in the transaction. VerLee commented, “The PMCF team was incredible. They are masters at their profession, providing context and understanding at every turn. Even with the excellence they bring to the table, they always made us feel included and informed as they skillfully and humbly coached us along the way.”
