Optimus partners with organizations and institutions across the not-for-profit sector. Our goal is to provide exceptional, personalized and cost-effective service that achieves impactful results and builds organizational capacity. We are pleased to spotlight several clients that are currently or have recently benefited from their partnership with Optimus.
Providence Regional Medical Center serves more than 150,000 patients annually and is the major tertiary care referral center for the five-county region of northwest Washington. It is recognized as one of the top hospitals in the Pacific Northwest, and rated No. 1 in the state in several clinical areas. Optimus assisted Providence in the success of two major campaigns over recent years. The just-completed “Campaign for a Greater Providence” was the largest and most successful campaign in the medical center’s history, raising $30 million to advance key clinical programs, such as neurosciences, heart, cancer, trauma, and children’s services. A previous campaign, also guided by Optimus, raised $20 million to help fund construction of a state-of-the-art medical tower on Providence’s Colby campus.
Optimus Fundraising has guided Holy Names Academy in its last two major capital campaigns, including, most recently, a campaign to support the construction of a $35 million underground parking garage and athletic complex. A prior campaign, also guided by Optimus, raised more than $10 million to strengthen the Academy’s tuition assistance endowment. Our work with Holy Names Academy included design of the campaign plan; crafting of the case for support; development of volunteer recruitment strategies and training; and development and implementation of lead and major gift solicitation strategies. Holy Names Academy is a private, independent Catholic high school offering a college preparatory curriculum to young women in grades 9 – 12. It is recognized throughout the Puget Sound region for its academic excellence and deep commitment to its mission — to admit academically qualified young women, regardless of their socioeconomic circumstances
Park Academy is one of the few schools in the Willamette Valley that provides a college preparatory education specifically designed for students with diverse learning challenges. It is the only school in Oregon specializing in teaching elementary and secondary school students with dyslexia. With a mission to empower students “to reach their highest potential of giftedness,” Park Academy provides students the tools to pursue higher education opportunities, seek rewarding careers, and realize productive and fulfilling lives. Optimus Fundraising guided Park Academy in the success of its first major capital campaign. Following a comprehensive campaign feasibility study, Optimus assisted Park Academy in a $4 million campaign help fund purchase and development of property to relocate the school.
Following a comprehensive campaign planning study, Optimus Fundraising is helping to guide Compass Health in its first ever capital campaign. This $14 million fundraising initiative is a critical component of the organization’s multi-million-dollar redevelopment of its Broadway Campus in Everett, WA. Compass Health is one of the largest not-for-profit providers of behavioral health services in the Pacific Northwest. It serves more than 17,000 people each year, across 20 locations, throughout the five-county region of Northwest Washington. The “It’s Time” campaign will enable Compass Health to provide state-of-the-art facilities and services to the community’s most vulnerable individuals, most living in low-income situations.
MONOVA: Museum of North Vancouver is designed to engage, strengthen and inspire the community and its visitors by creating experiences that explore the past, present and future of North Vancouver and its people. The museum is operated by the North Vancouver Museum & Archives in partnership with the City and District of North Vancouver. In late 2021, a new museum facility was opened to serve as the new home of the restored Streetcar 153, as well as interactive multimedia exhibits, innovative programming and public gatherings. Optimus guided the museum in its successful capital campaign to fund the new $10 million facility in the Lower Lonsdale/Shipyards District.
Redeemer has served as the spiritual home for Lutherans in Redwood City, in the heart of Silicon Valley, for nearly a century. It is a vibrant faith community that includes both a church and K-8 grade school. As Redeemer approaches 100 years of service in 2026, it has carefully explored how it can best meet the needs of the community in the years to come. This has resulted in Redeemer undertaking a multi-million-dollar initiative to enhance facilities, strengthen programs and fortify their financial future. Following a feasibility study, Optimus developed a strategic plan that includes separate fundraising initiatives for church and school under the umbrella of a single campaign. Optimus is now guiding Redeemer to bring the campaign – the largest in its history – to a successful conclusion.
