A note from the founder:
I have worn many hats in my professional life: Raiser’s Edge guru, Crystal Reports developer, software consultant, trainer, manager, problem solver.
I have over ten years’ experience with Raiser’s Edge, Crystal Reports and non-profit fundraising, and have worked for non-profits for over a decade. I have a degree in Computer Science from Harvard University, which has given me a strong technical foundation that helps me create elegant solutions to problems both mundane and complex. I love designing solutions for people that make their lives and work easier.
Throughout my career, I have created custom solutions to meet the needs of particular organizations or situations. A few examples include:
- Customizing Raiser’s Edge database systems for faster data entry and easier access to sophisticated fundraising analytics.
- Developing custom software for the Economics Department of Harvard University and a MacArthur Fellowship (“Genius Grant”) winner.
- Creating and managing the 25-person outreach and technical support departments of a welfare-to-work program serving 40,000 New Yorkers.
RaiseUp Consulting currently focuses on developing custom technical solutions to help non-profits and businesses meet their goals. Our team’s extensive background in the non-profit fundraising arena allows us to streamline fundraising systems and optimize the use of The Raiser’s Edge and Crystal Reports. Our database consultant has 10 years’ experience in strategic data analysis and efficient report development, as well as database migration, implementation and optimization. We have also recently contracted a grants specialist who has raised over $10 million during her career, due to her expertise in prospect research, foundation relations and public policy.
