As we have just launched our new BIG website, I thought tonight would be a good time to hit pause, take a minute to reflect, and share something with all of you that we are so proud of here at BIG. At BIG, we pride ourselves in being a part of the greater Atlanta community and we are always looking for ways to empower people to succeed.
In late 2013, we joined forces with Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Ernst & Young LLP (EY), Jackson Spalding, and King & Spalding to launch a program called Elevate U. We believe in those who believe we can reach higher. The idea is to utilize our collective expertise to elevate nonprofits to reach their highest potential.
Our first Elevate U event was held in November of 2013 at our training center at 999 Peachtree Street NE. CEOs and development directors from 15 not-for-profit organizations of various sizes and sectors came together as the inaugural Elevate U class to advance their missions and hone their ability to fundraise in a compelling, genuine way utilizing the proven GrowBIG® methodology.
In January of 2014, an ad was posted in the Atlanta Journal Constitution that captured the feedback that we received from the participants of the event. The ad was designed gratis by a group of talented professionals at Jackson Spalding, one of the Elevate U sponsor companies.
We wanted to share the ad with our GrowBIG® community, Atlanta, and beyond. We’re here to Elevate U!
