How do I start working with a Klein and Roth consultant?
Email us with a brief description of what you're looking for so we can see whether Klein and Roth Consulting might be a good fit for your needs. We will respond to your inquiry via email or phone. Or you can also give us a call at 510-893-8933 x. 301.
Is your firm licensed with the State of California?
Yes, we are a registered consulting firm. Our Fundraising Counsel registration number is #1770.
Are you willing to work for a percentage of what you raise?
We do not do any direct soliciting for our clients. Further, we are opposed to raising money on a percentage basis, and highly recommend against this practice. For more information on why we feel this way, see this article by Kim Klein.
What are your fees?
Our fees vary depending on the kind of work an organization wants. Keynotes generally range from $2,500 to $5,000, day-long trainings are $1,800 to $3,000, fundraising program assessments range from $4,000 to $7,000, and consultation or coaching is billed by the hour at $165 to $250. Our clients are mostly small to mid-sized social justice organizations and we will work with you to keep the fees reasonable and affordable.
Can I talk with you before committing to any fee?
We start with a 30-minute phone call, which is free of charge. This helps us determine whether we can help you, and helps you decide if you want to use our services.
