The PfCA Friends & Family Grant

Note: You must be invited to apply for this grant.

Established in 2001, the Friends & Family Grant was created as a way for us to help those who have expressed a desire for our services, but possess some kind of financial need. The program typically runs during the first quarter of each year. It is designed to offer grant recipients the opportunity for alternative forms of payment; payment plans, pay what you can, or trade/in-kind. If you need to explore the possibility for a free-of-cost option, just let us know.

Since we do a lot of volunteer work in our community, we see the PfCA Friends & Family Grant as a way to give to those closest to us. Walk through the steps below and let’s get started. If you need assistance, email us at hello@goPfCA.com.

Estimated time to read and complete application and make a payment requestion: 8 minutes

 

Step 1 - Choose Your Services

Review the services that we can provide. If you don’t see something here, just let us know - it may be a service we offer but is called something else than what you are familiar. Don’t be shy! We do this because we really do want to help. If we can’t do something, we promise, we’ll let you know. We have included our rates and those relating to similar services throughout the greater US.


Graphic Design

Rates charged by graphic designers in the USA vary from $20 to $300 an hour. However, designers don't always bill hourly; it's also common for a designer to set a fixed price for the work, based on their understanding of your project requirements.

Graphic design work may include Business Cards, Flyers, Posters, Rack Cards, Invitations, Greeting Cards, Stickers, Catalogues, miscellaneous documents, etc.

Our base hourly charge $75 ($60 for non-profits). We have approximately 20 years of graphic design experience.

Our services do not include the cost of printing. We are always happy to assist in brokering print solutions for your job and to pass our discounts on to you.

The following is a list of average times for our most used graphic design services:

Business Card - 1 hour - $75
Flyer - 1.5 hours - $120
Poster - 2 hours - $150
Invitation - 1.5 hours - $120
Rack Card - 4 hours
Greeting Card 2 hours
Sticker 1 hour

Again, these times are averages and may not reflect your project. A quote will be completed before we begin work on your project.

Social Media

Social media freelancer rates can hover around $15- $100 or much higher. Some firms offer monthly social media maintenance from $399 to $10,000 per month.

$75 per hour ($60 for non-profits) We have approximately 10 years of using social media platforms for business. We can prepare your quote as hourly rate, monthly fixed-fee, a retainer, or by the project.

Our social media work incorporates a variety of tools and techniques from copy creation to photography. Preparing a content calendar and thin creating the content can be daunting. We average 4 hours per week per client.

Miscellaneous

We assist people in a variety of ways. Whether we design strategic packages for small businesses or work with municipal agencies to build community events, we put our very best into everything that we do.

If you require assistance and don’t see what you are looking for, let us know in your submission form. There is a section for miscellaneous.

Web Design

Rates charged by web designers in the USA can vary from hourly to a fixed price.

Sellars Project Space uses Squarespace, a software as a service (SaaS) platform to create websites. This allows our clients to update their websites themselves and lowers the cost of creating a custom website from scratch. These websites are scaleable for all screens and offer a variety of affordable add-ons (such as e-commerce (store), photo galleries, social media integrations, direct mail, email, promotional pop-ups, data collection, etc.).

Competitive web design firms charge anywhere from $500 to $15,000 for basic websites.

We charge $3000 ($2500 for non-profits) for one of our standard websites. This includes layout and design, content support, training for you and/or your entire staff, 1 year of support and in some cases, a limited 1 year maintenance contract. Jimmy has 25 years of web design experience.

Our web services do not include the cost of your domain name ($15 average), hosting (paid to Squarespace and ranges from $12 - $60 per month depending on your integrations), or any third party solutions required for your website.

Keep in mind, these are average prices and may not reflect your project. A quote will be completed before we begin work on your project.

NOTE: On average, our Friends & Family Grant recipients spent $1750 on Web Design services.
