Service Fees

Service Fees

Susan Woods Nonprofit Solutions offers a broad range of services to help nonprofit professionals start, fund, manage, sustain, and reinstate 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations successfully.

From August 2007 to December 2019, Susan offered free in-person nonprofit classes for hundreds of nonprofit professionals in South Carolina and North Carolina. The classes included lectures, demonstrations, practice activities, networking opportunities, and refreshments (mostly breakfast and lunch).

Although the classes were free to the students, Susan Woods Nonprofit Solutions covered the actual expenses to offer the free classes. For example, we covered the expenses to reserve conference rooms to facilitate the classes, print the learning materials, and provide refreshments.

Paradigm Shift

According to, a paradigm shift is a fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions.

Effective January 1, 2020, SusanWoods Nonprofit Solutions transitioned to offering fee-based services. We are not offering free services anymore. We believe offering free services for 12 years is extraordinary.

Several reasons contributed to the paradigm shift which includes changes in the way the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) treats business expenses, the time and stress required to reserve library conference rooms, the uncertainty in attendance due to people reserving free seats and not attending the classes, and the physical demands of food shopping, preparation, and setup.

We believe that our new fee structure is more than fair when you consider the high quality of services we provide.  The services we provide and the new fees are below. Please click on the links below to learn more about our services.


Note: We still provide free classes on our YouTube channel.
