CLASS wants to optimize the impact by serving as many non-profits as possible. However, to be eligible for a venture (project), all NPOs must meet a set of criteria:

Organizational Criteria:

  • Have to be located in the SF Bay Area.

  • Have Tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.

  • Have financial strength to afford the resources required for the completion of the project & out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the CLASS team.

  • Have resources to use and maintain the deliverables after the project is completed.

We do not charge our clients for consulting services however we have a minimal engagement fee. Nonprofit organizations are responsible for any administrative or ‘out-of-pocket’ expenses incurred  while working on the project (i.e. stock purchases, printing fees, mileage reimbursement, etc.)


Timeframe for execution of a venture or project ranges from 2-5 months depending upon the scope of the project.
