Who we work with
Elise Johansen, Safe Voices
Hiring a consultant should feel like bringing on a new member of your team. Luckily, Wright Collective gets this and shows up to every interaction ready to engage as a core member of the team. Alyssa is a visionary and sees our world and our communities full of opportunities and creates connections at every turn. She comes to conversations with expertise, energy, ideas, and thoughtfully encourages creativity. When we wanted to bring on a firm to help us with our first ever capital campaign in our 45 year history, we had a long list of “must haves” for whomever we brought in. Wright Collective met these and then some. Wright Collective consistently generates ways for philanthropists, activists, and community stakeholders to contribute to social justice and mission/vision led organizations by recognizing and then effectively attending to inequities that exist within the philanthropic landscape. Alyssa leans into challenging conversations and calls all of us into conversations where fundraising has the opportunity to be seen as activism.
Jocelyn Anderson, TreeSisters
When considering ambitious philanthropic initiatives, Alyssa Wright and her talented team is who you need to achieve and surpass your goals. I had the pleasure of working with Alyssa, as a client at TreeSisters. She strategically works through our challenges and opportunities with enthusiasm, energy, and ease. Alyssa fully committed to our ambitious targets and gave our team the tools and resources that meet the unique needs of our organization and bring in 6-figure gifts. From working with Alyssa on various projects over the years, I have learned Alyssa to have a deeply meaningful and, collaborative approach which engages funders for long term support. Her approach is nuanced and built to last, I would highly recommend Alyssa for exceptional philanthropic services.

Alyssa and her team were incredibly helpful to our small organization, energizing and empowering our staff and board to successfully launch a capacity-building campaign and seek complementary grant funding. We recommend them highly to any other organizations seeking such skillful guidance and assistance!
