Dedicated to Helping You Fulfill Your Mission

A Committed Team with Big Hearts for Nonprofits

Founded in 1999, Element 74 is a digital marketing, website, and software development company located in Southeast Missouri. From the very beginning, Element 74 has supported and enjoyed working with community organizations and nonprofits. After merging with Red Letter Communications in late 2019, our team expanded in expertise and capabilities, but our core values remain very much the same. We consider it a privilege to support the mission of nonprofits.

Our passion for working with nonprofits is large. Every day we work to understand the challenges nonprofits are facing and seek to be a part of the solution. Our aim is to earn your trust and become a long-term technical partner for your organization. We are excited to get to know your organization and provide a solution that will help you focus less on reporting and more on your mission.

The Coalition Manager Story

Ignition

In 2012, the Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence approached Element 74 to help with their database software. The MCADSV team sought a better way to compile data for reporting and to get their team away from multiple spreadsheet and paper-based systems.

Version 1.0

From the first line of code, Coalition Manager was built with the needs of state and national organizations in mind. The software was initially used only in-house at MCADSV, but soon word of mouth began to spread among other state coalitions. In 2017, a focus group consisting of 11 state organizations provided feedback on version 1.0. After listening to the needs and ideas of these organizations, our team got to work.

Version 2.0

In 2018, we launched the fully revamped Coalition Manager 2.0. Though initially developed for domestic and sexual violence coalitions, the flexibility of 2.0 allowed our team to discover uses for other state and national nonprofits. We’ve begun partnering with organizations in the fields of drug prevention, child advocacy, court appointed special advocates, and beyond. Our software is currently powering nonprofits in 30 states and counting, and we’re so excited to share its capabilities with your organization.

More than just software, we build lasting partnerships

In addition to the robust features of Coalition Manager, you also get a full team of experts to help you get started and keep you moving smoothly. To begin, you’ll be paired with a specialist who will assist with configuring your software to suit your organization’s needs. All of our implementation specialists have years of nonprofit experience, so you can rest assured that you’ll share the same language and have the same overall goals.

After the initial set-up and training, you’ll still have ongoing access to our team of specialists. We offer support through your specialist, a help desk, and quarterly software updates. Coalition Manager users also have the opportunity to suggest and request new features, which help shape the future of the software. We’re always looking for ways to improve and better serve your needs.
