Here's what NextStep Nonprofit LLC clients are saying...

Marquis Victor, Elevated Thought Executive Director

"Elevated Thought has been working with Tracy since May of 2018. Since joining our ET family, she has provided a tremendous boost to our development and capacity to fundraise. Tracy has helped orient our staff and board to fundraising work, informed our fundraising strategy, and influenced our decision making on where we’re putting energy and time into grant applications. Tracy has helped us creatively tell our story and build our fundraising language through numerous grant applications. She is now helping us build up our development staffing capacity internally. As a grassroots organization with staff who wear many hats at once, Tracy has provided much needed support to help us remain stable during times of rapid change!"

Stephanie McArdle, Beyond Soccer Executive Director

"For any nonprofit, large or small, development work can feel overwhelming. Tracy, however, makes that work feel far less daunting. In fact, she makes it fun. She has been a reliable and creative fundraising resource for Beyond Soccer since early in 2019. Through NextStep Nonprofit, Tracy has helped us develop new narrative language for several of our larger and more collaborative initiatives, giving shape and form to our ideas and energizing our efforts. Tracy has helped us secure funding directly through grant application preparation and bolstered our fundraising efforts through counsel and coaching. Tracy also customized our Network for Good database, enabling us to use the tool more fully and to better understand, analyze, and communicate our revenue portfolio so that we can grow it in time."

Derek Mitchell, Lawrence Partnership Executive Director

"Tracy has been supporting Lawrence Partnership’s fundraising efforts since early in 2018 through her business, NextStep Nonprofit. Tracy has been a creative thought partner for us over these years and a committed resource. Tracy assisted with our latest strategic planning effort, developed content for our annual reports, and helped design our sponsorship packages. Tracy has also assisted us directly with fundraising through the preparation of numerous grant applications for our organization and also for our collaborative partnerships."
