Funding (monetizing) economic development efforts is a challenge. This month’s PLL webinar, taking place on Thursday, July 24 at 2:00pm ET, will focus on both the traditional methods being used as well as the innovative approaches being taken. With our panel of experienced practitioners, learn the concepts and procedures they use to raise the money necessary to carry out the mission of their organizations.

The panel will discuss local, regional, and state funding, cost sharing, foundations and crowd funding sourcing, and other approaches being used. Learn how to engage your community, leadership team, and yourself in the process.

Attend our webinar to discover these take-aways:

  • Why do people and organizations fund economic development

  • How to organize the effort

  • What are the sources of funding - traditional and otherwise

  • Who to engage to help you - volunteers and/or professionals

  • Where to focus our effort - measuring the market

  • When to carry out a fundraising effort - timing is everything

Bring your leadership team to hear first-hand these approaches to funding your organization, and then brainstorm how you can get your strategies off the ground! Join us on July 24th at 2:00 pm for this webinar to help your organization get the resources it needs to carry out its important mission.
