Who We Are

OrgSupport was founded in 2006 by Craig Ottavelli. With six years of experience as a communications coordinator for the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges and a lifetime of volunteerism with local nonprofits, he recognized a need to marry low-cost staffing services with the unique needs of nonprofit boards and executive directors.

Craig's formal training is in higher education and policy analysis. He earned a Bachelor's degree from The Evergreen State College and a Master's degree from Dartmouth College; he is ‘all but dissertation' status at the University of Southern California for his Ph.D. Craig's professional background is in communications, marketing, client management, and education. Before founding OrgSupport, Craig worked as a communications coordinator and grant manager for the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges.

In addition to his work with OrgSupport and as a member of many nonprofit boards, Craig served as a publicly elected member of the Olympia City Council. His work as an elected official afforded a unique opportunity to learn the needs of both municipalities and organizations that serve the communities within which they operate. His extensive service to the community has uniquely positioned Craig, and the OrgSupport and EventSupport family of companies, to provide the acumen and experience organizations need to succeed in their marketplace.
