Why you need Training for Nonprofit Consultants and Freelancers

Training for Nonprofit Consultants and Freelancers can make the difference between making money, or essentially, volunteering with a contract.

Like any business, its not easy. And for some, even what you call yourself can be confusing. As a nonprofit consultant, maybe you…

  • Advise nonprofits in a particular specialty?
  • Juggle freelance grantwriting between family responsibilities?
  • Are masking that you’re in transition between jobs?
  • Sell a specific product, but don’t like to be called a vendor or salesperson?

For our purposes, on this page, it doesn’t matter. If have or are part of a business that serves nonprofits with a product or service, we’re calling you a consultant.

By bringing you resources, skills and training for nonprofit consultants and freelancers we want to get you started, keep you going, and help you make a successful living while serving a sector that needs your help.

Training for nonprofit consultants and freelancers can take a lot of forms. Let’s look at what we have.
