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.
What Elevate provides is much more than just grant writing expertise: it's a sincere interest in the success and growth of their clients. Their staff is helpful, responsive and makes you feel supported in the work that you are doing -- no phone call or email goes unanswered. They become partners in strengthening your organization and an experienced sounding board for new ideas and nascent projects.Tyler Penfield Associate ProducerTheater Mitu
What stands out to me about Elevate is how quickly my assigned team was able to quickly understand our mission and needs in order to set up a quality grant-writing system that is able to compete effectively for grant opportunities. I appreciate the dedicated team assigned to our account so that we have a consistent experience and have the opportunity to learn from each other. With Elevate’s support, our organization is now on the radar of several major foundations.Linda Cornish Executive DirectorSeafood Nutrition Partnership
I interviewed 6 different grant writers and fundraising firms and Elevate stood out. From the moment that we started working with Elevate, I was impressed. They quickly came up to speed on our organization and were able to jump right in. Alayna and her team were able to help us to respond to 5 funding requests, prepare reports for foundations large and small, identify two new funding opportunities and formulate development materials to articulate the direction of the organization under its new leadership, all in less than three months. I feel that almost any other organization – local, national, small, large, start-up or established – could benefit from working with Elevate.Anne Tilma Non-profit & Philanthropic Consultant
Working with Elevate has been an enriching experience. Our team of consultants are true professionals who are passionate about their craft and are motivated by a sincere desire to see us succeed. Contracting Elevate has helped us with our development efforts and increased my capacity to oversee programming, train and develop my staff, and focus on other high-need areas. Additionally, it has afforded me the time to cultivate and strengthen relationships with community partners and current and potential donors. We have seen an incredible return on investment and look forward to our continued partnership.Daniel Sarmiento Former Executive DirectorEdu-Futuro
