My course on Nonprofit Consultant Contract Terms is up and live!
I am very pleased to announce that my course on contract terms for nonprofit consultants is up! “10 Easy Contract Clauses to Protect Non-profit Consultants and Freelance Grant Writers” is now live on the nonprofit.courses website! Here are a few of the things you will learn in this course:
- why you need to specify your status as in independent contractor,
- why you should never base your compensation on a percentage of the grant award,
- how to limit your liability in case a problem arises, and
- how to handle a potential conflict of interest
My aim is to ensure that nonprofit consultants and organizations know how to protect themselves legally when they work together. A clear, inclusive (but not overly burdensome) contract is vital to establishing a great relationship at the outset. As a lawyer and a grant writer who has worked with nonprofit organizations over the years, I have developed an understanding of what these contracts should look like. This course can serve as a checklist that any consultant or organization can use to protect yourself legally. So, if you would like any help with your legal contracts, please contact me. I would be happy to help! Moreover, the first half hour of a consultation by phone is free.
