Not only is Elevate’s quality of work outstanding – but their team approach to grant writing is both unique and effective. Working with their team has made SOME’s grant writing process more efficient and collaborative, as it should be. Moreover, Alayna's in-depth knowledge about DC philanthropy is extremely valuable, especially when creating our fundraising strategy. Working with Elevate has not only allowed me to deepen those critical donor relationships for our capital campaign, but also better prioritize my cultivation and stewardship efforts to yield better resultsAnna Christ Foundation & Client Relations ManagerSOME (So Others Might Eat)
