Courtney Moran

Senior Director
Hometown: Newton, MA

Courtney joined the Elevate team in early 2017 with a passion for supporting organizations that work to create opportunities for vulnerable communities and for doing work that matters.

She specializes in working with nonprofit clients that cover the full range of the education spectrum, from early childhood education all the way through post-secondary education access and persistence at both the local and national level. Before joining Elevate, Courtney worked in development and communications for a local youth-development non-profit where she led the grants program, writing both public and private grants to support academic, childhood nutrition, and civic engagement programming.
Courtney graduated from Colby College with a BA in Government and International Studies with a focus on Latin America. She discovered her interest in development and fundraising while working at the Colby Fund as an undergraduate.
In her spare time, Courtney enjoys traveling anywhere and everywhere, skiing when she can find her way up north, and being a quintessential obnoxious Boston sports fan.

What’s your favorite thing to do in DC?

Taking advantage of all of the free things to do — museums, concerts, etc.

What’s your biggest grammatical pet peeve?

Using “I” when it should be “me” — sometimes “me” is correct!

I would be an Oxford comma – because I find them useful and I don’t know of any other punctuation mark that has its own song.

What book could you read 50 times?

Anything by David Sedaris

What’s your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?

Cheating on crossword puzzles and rooting for my hometown New England Patriots
