Freelancer Lifeline is a resource destination where FX members can find grant opportunities, loan information, digital events, creative tools, and more. We hope it serves as a source of comfort, inspiration, and support as we navigate the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic together.

Search some of Kansas City’s most talented freelancers.

All for free.

Please note, as a not-for-profit, FX cannot—in good conscience—recommend one member over another. Please use the name- and speciality-enabled searchable directory instead to find the best talent for you.

Why/When You Need Us

Whether you need an extra hand or a fresh perspective, our members are here to help. Engage for one-off projects, long-term assignments, onsite gigs, seasonal or year-round marketing help.

Need Help?

No time to search for freelance talent? Send a help-wanted ad (200 words or less), and we’ll include it in the next member email. All for free.

Virtual Agency

Putting together a sound advertising or marketing piece or campaign often takes many participants. Our close-knit network allows each member to easily offer referrals to help fill in the gaps. Or you can hand select talent and put together your very own virtual agency! (For example, a designer, writer and photographer.)
