Prevent Now! Funding Strategy

This session provides a new approach to funding for community prevention initiatives, shifting from grant funding as primary source to individual gifts as a new and sustainable option. Learn about new tools and resources to help you find, involve and keep new individual donors to specifically support a community prevention program. These tools include Childhood Stories, a highly acclaimed 24 minute child sexual abuse documentary and a customized Economic Impact Presentation that when used in community will increase awareness and engage all kinds of supporters. You will also learn the nuts and bolts of staging Prevent Now! Community Awareness Meetings that will result in "new" money for your organization and program.
