About Us

We are eager to get to know you and your cause and to generously share our expertise as we together find new ways of doing things. We know what this work is like – the urgency of the needs, the never-ending to-do list, the worries that there will never be enough time or money. We have faith that there is enough for all of us to do well. We are here to help you find practical ways to connect with more people, raise more money, and have greater impact.


We are known and trusted for our ability to build and support powerful teams who shape imagination, strategy, and action. We love to pull together formidable crews of collaborators who move you toward what it takes to achieve your mission. Whether your project requires a partner only or a deep bench, the wisdom we gain from our team of brilliant collaborators makes us stronger and better.

"Staiger | Vitelli and Associates delivered just what we needed. They were trusted strategic partners and excellent coaches as we assessed our political landscape and communicated with the community. They were responsive to our needs, pushing us forward when we needed a push and patient when we needed to slow down." 

-Chris Dettling, AbleLight Village

-Tom Fulton, Art to Change the World

“Sarah artfully combines a strategic and deeply relational approach to training, organizing, and fundraising. Engaging with her through coaching not only taught me practical skills but helped me understand my underlying assumptions and values. It’s a transformative experience to work with Sarah.”

-Sarah Coen-Frei, Minnesota Public Radio

"Sarah and Laura's Values-Based Appeals cohort was the right thing for me at the right time. I was helped by concrete tools--timelines, templates, checklists, and more--that guided me through the process. I can't recommend Values-Based Appeals enough!”

-Javen Swanson, ISAIAH
