It’s Time To Get Nonprofit Bids Up And Running

With vaccines rolling out and nonprofit organization’s looking to the future, it’s time to kick Nonprofit Bids back into gear.

To that end, I’ve opened up the regular RFP submission form and will continue accepting entries to the provider launch list.

Here’s a mockup of what your RFP will look like.

Submit Your RFP

Speaking of the provider launch list, I fully understand that a year-long wait wasn’t something anyone expected so to reward everyone’s patience I decided to offer an extended free trial period for everyone currently signed up.

This is in addition to the 50% off for the first 50 launch subscriber discount.

I fully expect RFPs will trickle in as opposed to a big flood (granted, I’ll be all kinds of happy to be wrong) so it makes sense to offer a trial period while things get up to post-pandemic speed.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
