Arginase 1 Deficiency Foundation

Our Elevate grant writer did a great job and was clearly a professional. She was easy to work with and guided us through the process of developing our proposal from start to finish. We had a fantastic experience with Elevate.

Christine Zahn
Founder and Director

 

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the team at Elevate. They are professional, organized, and incredibly effective at telling our story to our funding partners. I’d recommend the OWR service to any organization that needs a boost in capacity to write grant proposals and reports.

MARCELA MUÑIZ
VICE PRESIDENT OF PHILANTHROPY

 

Elevate has truly become a part of our team. I appreciate the trust that we have developed over time; we have conversations in which we respectfully push and pull one another in a way that is making us more strategic and competitive for grant funding.

Edith Presley
president

 

The Elevate team brings deep knowledge of the grants process, effective systems for collecting information, and exceptionally strong writing to each Writing Capacity Project. We have moved further with Elevate in a shorter period of time than we have with any other fundraising model we have tried thus far.

When we had a temporary vacancy on our team, Elevate’s Ongoing Writer Retainer service met our grant writing capacity needs. Elevate was invested in our success in a genuine way, and it was a gift to have a fresh perspective on our grant language.

Heather Laing
Chief Development Officer

From the beginning, Elevate helped me understand the time and steps it would take to grow our grants program to support the growth of our organization. With their consistent support to research and cultivate new funders and develop new ways to talk about our work to philanthropic partners, we’ve seen our hard work pay off in the form of new funder relationships and increased revenue.

Jesse Kohler
Executive Director

With Elevate’s support, we have increased the quality and output of our grant writing. The Elevate team has developed a keen understanding of our organization and our work. With their strategic expertise, data tracking, and compelling writing, we have seen a significant increase in grant funding. This was especially critical in light of the unique challenges early childhood education professionals faced during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Carol Austin
Executive Director

Through a Grants Accelerator Project, the Elevate team taught us how to put our best foot forward to request the funding we need to make a difference. We learned strategies to garner authentic interest in our work and techniques to translate that into financial support to help us accomplish our goals. Elevate is the perfect name for the company, because they truly “elevated” our thinking!

Vanessa Lambright
Organizational Effectiveness and Special Projects Manager

Elevate has been a key collaborator and thought-partner in our external communications as our small yet nimble nonprofit continues to grow. Their team of experts has been instrumental in our efforts to connect with foundations dedicated to supporting our work to protect our coasts and ocean.

Celia Solis
Director of Operations

Compared to other companies we considered, Elevate offered the most comprehensive support. I’ve been pleased to see that they’ve delivered on that comprehensive approach! We didn’t want to hire and train someone to work on grants internally, since grant writing is not our expertise. Working with Elevate means we don’t have to worry about that.
