To reach me, please email rick@freerangeconsulting.ca

For over 20 years, I have been supporting a wide variety of local and international clients to become financially and operationally sustainable through services such as:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Donor Development
  • Board Training
  • Co-op Development
  • Grant Writing and Research
  • Interim Executive Director Services

I am currently enjoying a 5-year contract as Co-Head of the Monteverde Friends School in the cloud forests of Costa Rica, so my current availability is limited to long distance consulting. Please do contact me with any questions or ideas to explore – at the very least I might be able to refer you to other people or resources who could support you.


"Shanti Uganda was incredibly impressed with the consulting sessions we carried out with Rick. His hands-on focus allowed us to develop achievable goals and implement them into our daily operations. Within months, we had revamped our vision, developed our donor relationships and streamlined our strategic plan. His honesty enabled us to draw attention to areas we needed to focus on and years later we are still using his ideas and continue to grow. "     - Natalie Angell-Besseling, Executive Director, The Shanti Uganda Society

"My experience of Rick's work has deepened my respect for him on two levels: as a professional with extensive, practical experience in organizational management and fundraising, and as a warm human being with a deep instinct for community. I have no hesitation recommending Rick as a consultant and facilitator."
