Meet and learn from eight local funders about how to secure more resources for your organization! Community-based organizations have always been challenged with locating and acquiring adequate resources to sustain and enhance their programs, activities, and services. Resource development has never been more challenging, now requiring diversified funding streams including government, non-profit, private, and public funders and partners to help position the organization for growth and sustainability. Join us for this discussion with some of the Upstate’s leading financiers of community development. Participants will learn more about the resources these groups provide, the kinds of programs they support, and how to potentially partner with them in the future to support their organization’s work.
