Sliding Scale Pricing

for Grant Writing

As a small-sized consulting agency, we generate income from our consulting and grant-writing services. Our redistribution rates (see below) allow us to take care of ourselves, engage in research to keep improving our offerings and offer accessible rates to individuals, projects, and organizations most impacted by larger systems.

We acknowledge that the work of creative individuals, projects, and organizations has been largely underfunded, underserved, and devalued, impacting their economic safety. This reality takes on a different shape depending on the intersectional identities of folks.

Thus, we offer sliding scale fees to individuals, teams, and organizations based on these premises and the criteria below. Please, keep in mind that the rates below correspond only to our grant writing services. 

This sliding scale model is inspired by the outstanding work of multiple actors and organizations, including Resource Generation, AORTA, and Both / And.
