Tip of the Week: Post your RFP on ConnectVA

Tip of the Week RFP

Did you know that in addition to posting jobs on ConnectVA, you can post RFPs? A Request for Proposal ad can be used to seek proposals from freelancers, consultants, and contractors for a variety of services your organization may need, ranging from technology services to strategic planning. Housed in the Job Finder (the region’s go-to source for nonprofit jobs), RFP postings are $45 per listing for 30 days, can be renewed, and are shared with over 3,500 ConnectVA subscribers in our daily e-mails.
