National Service Resource Guide: Strategies for Building a Diversified Funding Base.
Corporation for National Service, Washington, DC.
This booklet was designed to help service organizations think on a strategic level about forming innovative partnerships and soliciting community resources. Four essential steps are offered to accomplish this goal: design a comprehensive fundraising plan; develop convincing evidence of effectiveness; actively engage potential supporters; and foster community relationships. The booklet is divided into the following sections: (1) "Governmental Grants"; (2) "Corporate Partnerships"; (3) "Foundation Support"; (4) "Individual Donors"; and (5) "Checklist for Success." Each section highlights potential sources of support for community service programs and offers some fund raising strategies. "In-kind" contributions are discussed with suggestions for extending the use of such donations to further the outreach of all involved. (EH)
