Let’s discuss funding that doesn’t come from government. We’ll get very practical about donations from individuals, special events, foundation grants, fees for service, planned giving, and endowments. We will do a few exercises that you can take back and use with your board and committee members. The course will give you strategies that you can put to use immediately in your organization.  Instructor: Don Block, Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council
