Larkin Street Youth Services is on a mission to end youth homelessness by making it rare, brief, and one time. Founded in 1984, the San Francisco nonprofit organization has helped more than 75,000 young adults in the Bay Area through healthcare, housing, employment, and education services. Now, Larkin Street's leaders see a unique opportunity to cut youth homelessness in half by 2023.
Larkin Street fundraisers will call on private donors, foundations, corporations, and individuals to reach this milestone. It's an effort that will prove to be monumental, and it's why Larkin Street leaders chose Gravyty and AI to change the way fundraising works and inspire giving at a scale that's never been seen before.
But don't take our word for it. Gayle Robertson, Chief Development Officer for Larkin Street Youth Services, sat down for a Gravyty Fundraiser Spotlight video to share her excitement for AI for fundraising with the world. See what Gayle has to say in the video below.
"My biggest challenge as a fundraiser is managing my major donors in the moves management process," explained Gayle Robertson, Chief Development Officer at Larkin Street Youth Services. "I have 59,000 donors in my database, 800 active major donors. Managing them through spreadsheets or manually through Salesforce has been a labor-intensive process and not effective."
When Gayle found her solution in Gravyty and AI, she said, "We're moving from 2021 to 2030."
With Gravyty, Gayle and the Larkin Street team gains the power to strengthen and manage donor relationships through personal and consistent communications at scale.
