Management consultants most likely to give discounts
Management consultants are more likely to offer discounts to charities than any other professional groups, suggests a new study.
IT specialists are nearly as willing to lower their rates for charities: 13 per cent say they do, offering average discounts of 13 per cent.
The largest average discounts – 22 per cent – are offered by legal professionals, but only 6 per cent will give discounts. Finance professionals are least likely to reduce their fees for charities – only 3 per cent say they do.
Duncan Taylor, managing director of people4charity.com, which matches freelance workers with registered charities, said: “Not many people would have put management consultants at the top of their giving list, but at the same time there might be less surprise about the more cautious approach taken by financial experts.
“The feedback from charities is that they really appreciate access to preferential rates offered by some of the most highly rated specialists in the country.”
