    1. What does Run River do?

Run River offers support for strategic projects, such as Master Planning, Marketing, Fund Development, and Organizational Development.  Each project is developed specifically for the organization involved and its needs.

    2. What do you charge?

Fees are based upon a estimate of what we believe will be our time involved in the project and any other fees for work by associated consultants (such as graphic design).  For most projects, we offer a contract price and a cap on expenses.  We try to work with an organization to find payment arrangements that work for everyone involved.  We can help you try to find sponsors, or donors, to fund your project as well.

   3. How soon can we start a project?

Most projects require a lead time of 6-8 weeks.  However, we try to be flexible and sometimes have openings in the calendar more quickly than that.

    4. Are you available to come and meet with our Board and Staff?

Yes!  We prefer to meet with the leadership of an organization in the process of developing a proposal.  We consider this development process a collaborative one in which the best approach and combination of services is worked out.  There is no charge to your organization for this initial meeting.

    5. When is the best time to do a Master Plan?

A Master Plan can begin at any time.  The late winter / early spring is often an ideal time to begin as it allows the process to span the summer, which is often a critical time to observe a facility "in action."  However, planning can also be divided into phases, which allows for even more flexibility in scheduling.

    6. Why should we choose Run River as a consultant organization?

We believe that we are unique in several ways.  First we tailor each process to your situation; no two projects are exactly alike.  They are developed to reflect the character and circumstances of your organization.  Secondly, we are flexible in scheduling and try to accommodate any changes in the process that arise.  Finally, we bring together a unique set of skills in data analysis, group process, and creative thinking, as well as professional expertise.
