Mark Hernandez

Experience, Skill, and Passion — On Stage and Off


Do you need assistance with your foundation and/or public funding portfolio? I can write applications, administer grants, research prospective funders, and advise on funding strategies.


Do you need credible and persuasive written materials? I can write and/or edit articles, solicitation letters, marketing and promotional copy, and case statements.

Do you need a fresh look at what you do and how you do it? I can analyze artistic and production work, and suggest new or improved ways of doing things.


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 artistic and/or administrative analyses, funding recommendations, and opinions on issues facing the field.


I offer an
hourly rate 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.
