What we want to know

Whether you are an incorporated company, a solo artist, or a loose callaborative, we would like to learn more about your administrative needs and challenges. We will ask you to describe your main administrative requirements, who performs them, and at what cost. We’re also interested in administrative services you perform without additional compensation, as well as any administrative challenges you might face and your suggestions for how your admin burden can be lightened.


Administration can be a touchy subject. To ensure a safe environment, your responses will be kept in the strictest of confidence. db 3rd Sector Consultancy will not share your information with the Metcalf Foundation or a third party without your explicit consent. We will ask for this consent at the end of the survey, so you can make an informed decision.
