NewRoot Learning Institute

After 25 years of service, our organization has undergone a significant evolution to better cater to the evolving needs of our schools and communities. Thanks to Elevate’s unwavering support, we’ve successfully crafted messaging that resonates seamlessly with our core mission and deeply-held values. Moreover, we’ve sharpened our focus on the urgent necessity for restorative justice in schools, empowering us to forge meaningful connections with new funding partners.

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

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

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

Elevate is my go-to grant writing partner. We’ve worked with a variety of writers that are responsive, detail-oriented, and have helped me raise a significant amount of funding through grants over the years.

Robin pitts 
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 

I appreciate the way my Elevate team not only writes strong proposals, but also helps me to consider the bigger picture of how each funding opportunity fits into our overall strategy. They are informed, accessible, organized, and they are excellent writers. I have come to think of Elevate as an extension of our staff.

Janice Johannsen
Development Manager

Working with Elevate has been a very smooth process from start to finish. Our writer’s professionalism and strength of writing proved instrumental in gaining the trust of the collaborators on our application and kept us organized and on track to submit this project early. Their approach took a truly respectful and collaborative approach to make everyone feel heard. The finished proposal has accomplished my aims of communicating a clear story of our work and answering the questions specifically with an eye for building our case as to why we should be funded.
