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.
Elevate is an enthusiastic and bright partner with leadership that is refreshingly responsive, well-organized and strategic. During a time of transition, they made sure our grants program didn't miss a beat, and in less than a year's time we have seen substantial growth in our funding. We're proud to work with progressive, sincere and hard-working forces for good. It's synergy that is hard to find!Janine Tursini Director & CEOArts For The Aging
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
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
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)
