I’m proud to offer the National Parents Organization (NPO) this proposal for marketing, creative, and other services through my company CheckSix Creative Studio (Ck6). As an avid advocate for shared parenting, I understand how vital the NPO mission is.and I appreciate the challenges of passing shared parenting legislation.
I’ve prepared this proposal as a starting point for our conversation. I look forward to discussing how I can help move the NPO mission forward in full or in part with what is offered here.
I’ve started with some options to raise funds that will help move the NPO mission forward. Following the fundraising, I’m presenting a social media strategy and several marketing campaigns to raise awareness for the NPO mission.
As the needs of the organization grow or change, I’m happy to adjust the services offered up or down. I have reduced my regular agency rates since NPO is non-profit, and this is an issue that I’m passionate for. The NPO rate I have quoted is $30/hr for creative services and $50/hr for consulting services (normally $75/hr for creative and $125 for consulting). This will maximize the effect of the work that we do for the NPO. I’ve used estimates for typical times to complete various items. Actual times may vary based on complexities and customer revisions.
I look forward to discussing this proposal and helping you bring the critical NPO mission nationwide!
Take care, Chris
