Considerations to Manage Expectations and Cover Your Assets

This webinar is part of our Power of 3 series: Navigate Nonprofit Consulting.

A well-crafted contract helps consultants and clients understand and manage expectations.

Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a client engagement thinking, “I’ll never do THIS again!” or “I would have charged a lot more if I had known clients were going to do this!”?

If you are just starting out in the world of consulting, you may not be sure what you could or should include in a contract to cover yourself. It can be easy to get roped into extra work if your contracts are not specific enough, and you might not be properly compensated for this extra work.

Understanding the essentials will make your life easier, keep the client accountable, and ultimately reduce your stress.

During this session, Mandy Pearce of Funding for Good will show you the best practices when it comes to creating contracts as a nonprofit consultant. You’ll see sample verbiage you may consider using and questions to consider as you craft these vital documents.

You’ll learn:

  • contract basics: what they are and what they should include (at bare minimum);
  • time-saving contract considerations;
  • money-saving contract considerations; and,
  • low-hassle, ethical contract exit options.

You’ll hear real-life stories of lessons learned the hard way and walk away prepared to use contracts to avoid similar situations in the future.

This webinar is perfect for anyone looking to start or grow a nonprofit consulting company. Whether you’re just exploring options or you’re already dabbling in independent grantwriting or consulting, you’ll gain insights into how to turn a side hustle into a sustainable business.
