“I don’t think you ever stop giving. I really don’t. I think it’s an on-going process. And it’s not just about being able to write a check. It’s being able to touch somebody’s life.” – American media moghul Oprah Winfrey Elevate is a bouquet of connected offerings for the NGO and education sectors that gives organizations a different way to transform visitors into dedicated supporters.
