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.

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.

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

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

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

The Elevate team regularly goes above and beyond to ensure that Remember Niger is well positioned for foundation support. The team is professional, knowledgeable, and truly cares about the work we do. With their partnership, I know we are pursuing a fundraising strategy that is setting us up for long-term success.

Kara VanderKamp
Executive Director

Elevate has changed my life as an Executive Director, who was the organization’s principal fundraiser for decades. We experienced continual turnover in the development department, and I was always picking up the pieces. Now, Elevate has helped us cultivate numerous new sources of funding, making it possible for me to focus on securing deep-pocket individual donors.
