Nonprofit organizations we've worked with since Elevate launched in January 2013.
What has surprised me most about working with Elevate is that we get an entire development team for the price of a single Development Associate. They have set up a model that allowed us to think about fundraising in a new way. We have been able to restructure our staff's time and focus since Elevate has taken over most of our development responsibilities. Their extensive network of clients and knowledge of the development field is an unmatched resource.Amy Fishman Kurz Interim Executive DirectorNonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington
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
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
Even if you are an organization that has been grant writing for years, the Elevate team can open your eyes to new possibilities. They have a great deal of field-specific expertise. They really take the time to make sure they have mined all the potential of your organization’s unique story and they give a lot of thought to ways in which that story fits with funders’ priorities.Deb Gottesman Founder & Co-DirectorThe Theatre Lab
