A Marketing & Fundraising Accelerator for Social Impact Leaders with a Personal Growth Journey
  Imagine a Community  
... Where you accelerate your results with the coaching and training you need to reach your marketing and fundraising goals. 
 Let's elevate your impact together. 
Why? Here's the Reality for Many Leaders of Nonprofits and Social Enterprise Businesses ...
  • Marketing a cause in a recessionary and divisive period, where it seems like the world is constantly on fire, and you're dealing with crisis after crisis, is incredibly difficult.

  • Many want to accelerate impact but don’t know how to use marketing to bring in funding or mobilize supporters for high commitment actions.

  • Most need to deepen audience insights to build a movement that changes communities and to deploy the right solutions for more equity in the world.

What We've Found
Many leading social impact work lack the resources they need to fully address the problems they're focused on and achieve their dream.

Our 3 discoveries in overcoming this major gap are ...
Strong Funding Relationships
You can create 200% stronger funding relationships and results without needing to learn lots of technical skills and taking tons of extra time you don’t have. 
Offline First
To have incredibly high impact in your community and cause, you need to do a basic strategic business- or organization-building tactic first to learn your ideal audience like you never have before, before even thinking of spending a penny on ads.
Collaboration Across Organizations
You can be more strategic and generate change more quickly in your community or cause faster, without feeling siloed, isolated, or lonely, and without needing a 90-page strategy developed by expensive consultants that you’ll never read again.
This is an exploratory call to find out if Elevate Impact is the right fit for your goals.
“What has worked well for me is the ImaginePod Way — breaking the information down into bite-sized chunks, understanding how those puzzle pieces fit into the larger picture, and doing the task at hand as a collective. Every workshop has helped me to think more positively and feel empowered to step into the "scary" area of the unknown and just take the steps to learn. The method helps me to set clear goals that are approachable and fit my mission. "

Case Study: Rapid Growth in Impact
In collaborative strategy sessions, we created the evergreen marketing funnel to propel an organization's mission to protect basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society — with 4,000 new leads in 5 weeks, accountability for forward momentum, articulation of impact, and tools like a Project Journey Map, Progress Tracker, and Survey Data.  
We've Been Part of the Biggest Movements
Top talked-about organization: Our work on influencer engagement for immigration issues with Fission Strategy and Define American, led by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist José Antonio Vargas, made it the top talked-about organization in a two-week period.
Fundraising on the back of a funnel: With AbilityPath we collaborated to create a Quiz Funnel that brought in new supporters for inclusion of people with disabilities in their communities. The funnel raised money on its back while building their list within a niche target audience and geography at an exponentially lower cost per acquisition than previous methods.
Growth in coaching clients: With Litha Booi in South Africa and his holistic practice that helps people connect with their ancestors, we coached him and gave him the training and templates to create a Quiz Funnel that grew his list of people interested in ancestral healing to 1,100 in a week, brought in 125 to his first Challenge, and enrolled his coaching clients.
Why Coaching & Training?
We're Bridging the Funding Gap that Exists Now and Historically For Under-Resourced Leaders, Causes and Communities
Empowered Leadership is necessary for the causes your grantees are championing
Confidence To Implement Learnings is the ultimate goal, ensuring the training resources are put to their greatest use
Minority-Led Movements have historically not had access to resource-rich networks, mentorship or knowledge sharing with peer networks — let's change that!
Heart Centered & Holistic coaching methods acknowledge our common humanity and give us space to show up as a whole person professionally
Research Shows that a majority who are coached see improvements in their communications skills both personally and professionally, directly impacting a team's ability to communicate their mission to potential donors and funders
"This is definitely a much needed niche. I have only the best things to say about Adriana and Abigail. They are amazing and both top-notch trainers. Def worth your team's time!"
