Tools for Sustaining Funding for Local Programs
Growing Local Funding is designed to empower non-profits providing critical local services to advocate and engage with funders with a well thought out plan to meet mutual goals. Some of the best and boldest ideas for how to spark change and meet community needs come from the local level; yet, sustaining funding for local direct services can be challenging. This toolkit provides non-profits with information on partnering with public funders to effectively address the needs of their community. The toolkit provides information on how funds can be used to help support direct services at the local level; how to recognize which services are appropriate for public or other funding; and how to approach funders to advocate for partnership and long-term support.
