Frequently Asked Questions

How can Mother Earth Literacies Consultants help a nonprofit?
Nonprofit consultants are well-versed in various aspects of the nonprofit sector. We can jump in to help with a variety of special projects – both long-term and short-term – and can bring new life to an organization by coming up with fresh ideas and outside perspectives. We can step in to fill some gaps in the organization such as: Nonprofit fundraising, managing capital campaigns and other big projects, research, creating and improving donor relationships, marketing strategies, board development, strategic planning, grant writing, and human resources management

How much can nonprofit consulting cost?
It depends on the needs of your org. We typically meet first with leadership, develop a scope of work and a proposal for deliverables in quarterly time frames. An hourly rate can be the most affordable for smaller organizations. The average hourly rate for nonprofit consultants is between $100 and $300.


How can our organization or school benefit from professional development?
PD can increase retention; in an era where more and more employers are cutting costs for opportunities like training, your organization can stand out from the rest by offering and promoting some professional development options. Offering professional development shows your team that you care about their career progression and are interested in keeping them at your organization long-term.

It can build confidence and credibility with a focus on equity; providing professional development training opportunities allows your staff to build confidence in the work they do. It also helps them to build credibility as they continue to gain new skill sets, viewpoints, and a sense of collaboration.

PD can help with succession planning; these targeted tools for training future leaders at your organization help you promote from within and are a great way to show your staff that they can have a long career with your organization. In addition, it can re-energize your staff and build creativity, bring in new skills and competencies, and promote wellness across the board.
