Two local firms are offering pro bono work to not-for-profits in 2010. Fund-raising consultant Achieve will provide a year
of free coaching or consulting. Advertising and public relations firm TrendyMinds is also accepting applications.
The Achieve grant for coaching is valued at $2,000, while the grant for consulting is worth as much as $12,000. Grant winners also receive access to Achieve’s client Web site, which has a resource library, webinar sessions, and a project-management tool.

TrendyMinds donated more than $50,000 in services (or 400 hours of work) to eight organizations in 2009. Interested groups can apply at www.trendyminds.com. The deadline is Nov. 6.
