LARRP is teaming with the Jemmott Rollins Group, (JRG) to present a half-day workshop to assist organizations address fund development needs from a strategic perspective. Workshop participation is limited to 25 people.
This workshop is for organizations with limited resources that are struggling to figure out how to serve the needs of the re-entering population. This will be a highly interactive and participant-engaged experience that will further the understanding of fund development and ways to improve opportunities for more resources.
The workshop objectives are:

- To role-play negotiations with potential funders.
- To examine common errors made by nonprofit organizations when seeking funds.
- To promote collaborative rather than competitive approaches.
Jemmott Rollins Group Description of the Workshop
As a result of California State Assembly Bill (AB) 109, many LA County communities are experiencing an influx of individuals who were formerly incarcerated. One goal of communities is to support the re-entry of our residents (e.g., brother and sisters, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, etc.) and to encourage and help them remain safe, housed, and productive in our neighborhoods. This is an enormous challenge to community-based and faith-based organizations and health service providers, and comes at a time when resources are already stretched due to the economic conditions in the state and in the nation. Nonetheless, many of us are willing to step up and reach out and surround those persons re-entering the community, and our collective responsibility is to figure out how to do this given what we have.
