Chesapeake 10-12


CADY, an award-winning, 20-year prevention coalition, will share its evolution from a small grassroots organization and 10-year DFC grantee (2003-2013) to a thriving 501(c)3 nonprofit today. Workshop presenters will outline the development and implementation of proven sustainability funding strategies (EARN; ASK; SHARE; CHARGE) and demonstrate how these vital tools can advance your coalition growth and long-term sustainability. As with road maps, good sustainability plans help coalitions clarify where they are and where they want to go. Participants will leave this session energized and ready to empower community engagement and collaboration; with a sustainability plan template, tracking and planning tools; diversified funding strategies, tips for leveraging strategic partnerships, and a clear understanding of a strategic process that will help you arrive at your destination.
