    Webinar Outline


    As public funding becomes less reliable, the success of your project may depend on developing creative funding solutions with the private sector. Ever wonder how trail projects get access to hundreds of thousands, or in some cases, millions of dollars in private money? This webinar includes presenters that have successfully courted private foundations to give you a holistic view of how projects can be pushed to the next level by engaging the private sector. To demonstrate these best practices, panelists will share their success stories in Akron, OH and Philadelphia, PA.

    Learning Objectives

    • Learn about the trade-offs between public and private funding sources

    • How to identify potential funders in your community

    • Ways to align your project with their priorities

    • Approaches for assembling the right partnerships, gathering relevant information, and techniques for effectively communicating with private funders
