Nonprofit organizations we've worked with since Elevate launched in January 2013.
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
Our partnership with Elevate has provided a tremendous value-add to our work. As a small non-profit, we rely on the added capacity the Elevate team brings in helping us identify potential funding opportunities and equipping us to go after them effectively. The team members we've worked with have all been excellent. They have worked hard to learn who we are and find the opportunities that best fit our needs. They then walk us through every step of the process with funders to help ensure the best outcome possible. In addition to valuing their expertise, we've genuinely enjoyed working with everyone we've met at Elevate.Rachel Johnson Programs DirectorAmerican Values Network
The decision to hire and consult with ELEVATE was one of the best decisions we could have made. ELEVATE immediately introduced us to software and systems to keep us organized and focused. In addition, they immediately assigned a team to us that has been a true pleasure to work with. Not only are they skilled, experienced, and strategic thinking grant writers but they are warm, agreeable and a pleasure to work beside. I have no doubt that together we have the right ingredients to position this organization for growth and continued success.Basha Silverman Vice President, Strategic ExpansionJewish Family and Children's Service of Greater Philadelphia
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
