We are aware that many small nonprofits in the Berkshires that were already living on the edge financially, are now scrambling to figure out how to make payroll, work remotely, pivot programs, and strategize despite so many unknowns.

The consultants listed below have expertise in communications, finance, business, HR, and more. They have all generously offered themselves pro bono to advise our local nonprofits (virtually of course) via phone or video conference software.  

“Mary McGurn (pro bono consultant) was extremely helpful and didn’t make me feel like a technological idiot! After lengthy “free” conversation about what I needed, I offered to pay her going forward. She was very generous with her time! I must say that because I have been zoomed out I haven’t taken much advantage of my NPC membership as of late, but this was worth it right there! Usually any interaction with NPC for me turns out that way!”
