Hiring a Fundraising Consultant

Are you thinking of hiring a fundraising consultant or independent grant writer for your organization? (That's likely the search that landed you on my site). I just came across a great article by Kim Klein in the Grassroots Fundraising Journal (pdf file) with some sound advice on how to go about it.

Ms. Klein goes beyond the obvious (check references, make sure you're compatible) to explain exactly what a consultant can - and cannot - do for your organization. Any nonprofit looking to bring on a consultant should take a moment to read this short piece. It will be time well invested.
