How do you employ people in multiple states? Do you pay for office chairs? How do you share documents?

These are just a few of the many practical questions we hear from colleague organizations exploring remote work. One of the key gaps in what is said about remote work is that it assumes there is money — money to pay someone to figure out the logistics, money to help employees create productive remote work spaces, and money to build the best online collaboration platforms. Working for a nonprofit, especially a social justice nonprofit, money is not an available solution to the challenges of remote work, so you learn to do things in house, for less, or in whatever way is feasible for your organization.

This section was created in order to share what we know about how to administratively take on remote work and to do it well even when there isn’t a lot of money.
