Do you need credible and persuasive written materials? I can write and/or edit:
• Articles
• Solicitation Letters
• Marketing and Promotional Copy
• Case Statements

Are you a grantmaker seeking information on the arts scene in the Bay Area or beyond? I can help you understand specific organizations, trends, and current conditions by providing you with:

• Opinions on Issues Facing the Field


hourly rate is on a sliding scale from $55 to $90.

For a discrete project with reasonably predictable requirements, I may agree to a flat fee, typically ranging from $600 to $1,500.

If I feel my skills match your need, I will work with you to establish an arrangement that fits your budget. If you're unsure, let's talk: an initial consultation costs you nothing.

I do not accept percentage-based compensation. For additional insight into this detrimental and dishonorable practice, refer to this position paper issued by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
