Raise Money, Gain Visibility
We develop the personal connection between donors and your cause.
You are arguably in the most competitive industry known with so many causes all fighting for the same dollar. Successful non-profits have the unique ability to create willing participates. They do so by building value and urgency into their causes. But how do you get donors to fund your long game and give more per contribution?
Different donors give in different ways and for different reasons. The key is to implement marketing systems that give you the flexibility to extend donor cycles across the board, all while preserving valuable resources.
Why Elevate The Experience?
We have extensive experience with non-profits. We incorporate for-profit marketing and sales methods into non-profit settings to help create a donor base that you can count on year after year. Contact us today to discuss how we can help your organization raise the donations it seeks and the awareness it needs.

Telling A Story Through Images
On a warm summer afternoon, Edwin is invited to photograph a shelter for girls who are homeless either because their parents have been sent away to prison or simply have no means to care for them. The girls' shared experiences of dejection, hurt and confusion turn into immense support, respect and love for one another (and their caretakers) as they naturally form a unique and enduring sisterhood.
On this particular day, one girl is being adopted by a new family. After she tidies her room and parting gifts are exchanged (the seashell she puts to her ear), a tradition ensues as all the girls team together to carry her belongings to the car, which sits idle at the curb. They all hold each other tightly for a long moment, knowing in their own way, that even though they may never see each other again, they will always remain sisters. As hands wave "Bye...", a sadness drapes over the home. And for the girls who remain, hugs come from every direction, filling their hearts again with hope as they dash to the window, looking and listening for that next call from a family who might want to give them a home too.
