10 Minute Walk Learning Series: Leveraging Private Funding
- Registration Closed
When public funding strategies are enough to fund your great park access and quality work you turn to private dollars. Do you have a park foundation? How do you navigate the grant process? Where do you look for private funding? Join us for a webinar and interactive panel discussion on ways to leverage private funding to support your work. We'll be joined by guest speakers representing a park foundation, economic development, and park-specific funding. Bring your questions and ideas for a robust discussion around best practices you can use in your city.
