How to make a living and find money for your project without selling your soul!

A six-session workshop series in Berkeley, CA

How do we raise and use money and grants to further our vision for a just equitable, thriving world? How can you develop an ethical planning framework to fund your work, project, or organization? What funds are available to support our transformative, grassroots work? Where can you learn step-by-step how to seek grant funding for your project?
