I use what might be described best as the “Pay What You Want” model of billing.
After your project is complete, you will receive a blank invoice for my work from Keppelmayr Publishing, LLC (My “official” business… named after my family in Germany). Simply send me a check or pay over the PayPal link whatever you believe the work I have done is worth.
I believe strongly in the gift economy. My work is freely given and you are free to compensate me at any rate you believe is fair. If you need to wait a few months to pay me something, that is fine too. Whatever fits your nonprofits needs. Any amount is gladly appreciated.
I believe that nonprofit organizations do the hard work on the ground. The direct service. You and your organization are also intricately linked to the GIFT ECONOMY. That’s because people give you their money freely so that you can create services to the betterment of our world.
Your employees, including you, are truly unique people who deserve every penny they earn. Living on a nonprofit salary can be challenging in today’s world. You have agreed to work towards change. Towards a better society tomorrow rather than a quick fix for your personal bottom-line today.
Thank you for taking this journey with me!
