Our mission is to make life easier for nonprofit leaders
Elevate works with effective and ambitious nonprofit organizations to make life easier for their leaders, improve their program outcomes, and build more sustainable organizations capable of doing the hard, day-to-day work of meaningful social change.
Foundations, corporations, or public agencies our grant writers have submitted proposals to in the past few years.
Total funds our grant writers have raised for the nonprofit causes they support.
Nonprofit organizations we've worked with since Elevate launched in January 2013.
There are three aspects of Elevate's work that really make them stand out. First, the fact that, even though they are only part-time support, they have been able to understand, organize and leverage key details of our program and operation to turn around written products in a short time frame. Second, is their attention to detail and willingness to adapt as we've gotten to know one another - everything from how I punctuate to what program details I chose to emphasize. Third, is that Elevate's team almost always says "yes," even when I'm asking for something complex/very quickly/without a ton of guidance. That "can do" attitude is one of my favorite parts of doing business with them.Beth Harris Deputy Fundraising DirectorEnroll America

In mid 2013, our organization was riddled with the challenges that so many nonprofits face: too few human and financial resources and an ambitious and critical development plan. Over the years, we employed staff members, specialists, and independent contractors - with minimal success - to manage and fulfill the contributed revenue needs of our organization. It was serendipitous that I met Elevate, but was immediately impressed with the team's outstanding business model, intelligence, professionalism, spirit, style, creativity, and project management. As our collaboration progressed: They fully embraced our mission with gusto; They sought and brought to us opportunities and ideas - that even in our broadest thinking - we would not have considered; They organically melded with our staff to augment our work; They crafted well-written and compelling proposals on which I was proud to have the theatreWashington name; With their extraordinary work ethic and commitment, they freed me to focus on other matters; and They helped us define and align financial and programmatic goals. Ultimately, Elevate's exceptional integrity and work quality elevated our organization. As nonprofits increasingly experience unfulf...Linda Levy President and CEOtheatreWashington
