Work Terms

I strongly encourage the following:
• Conversation: Before accepting your project opportunity, I require a 15-minute conversation about the specifics of your project. This is a chance for both of us to ask and answer any questions we might have about the project. To schedule a meeting, go to
• Signed Agreement: It is my policy not to begin work until there is a signed service agreement in place.
• Guarantees: I cannot imply or promise any guarantee that your grant proposal(s) or projects will be funded.
• Realistic Time Frames: I cannot make "magic" happen in 24 hours or in the 11-hour. I will not take on projects with a deadline less than two weeks away. Anything less than two weeks, I cannot confidentially ensure that your proposal is competitive or that the proposed project is accurate. To be truly competitive with federal or big foundation proposals, I strongly recommend that project work starts between 60 to 30 days before a proposal or report deadline.

I will NOT do the following:
• Pro Bono: I have already selected one pro-bono client that I already have a strong relationship with. I will not work for free or donate my services to any other organization.
• Contingency: I do not work on a contingency basis. Due to the amount of time and resources used to assist organizations in during the development and proposal process, I must charge our clients. If you do not have any money, you are not ready to apply for a grant. Grants should never be an organization’s first dollar. You need to raise funds from individuals first: people who believe in your organization and are willing to make a contribution to get you started. A good place to begin is your board.
• Lie: I do not lie for clients, and I do not work with clients that intentionally lie to us. I do not work with organizations that intentionally fudge the truth (lie) in an effort to attempt to get the grant.
