One of the greatest challenges Safe Routes to School organizers face is obtaining funding for their programs. Whether it is for small incentives for the students, healthy snacks for walk or bike to school days, flyers and advertisements for events, or eventually hiring a staff member, finding funding is an important part of growing your program. Unfortunately, it can often seem like a daunting task.
This 60 minute webinar will provide tips and tricks to help make fundraising for your SRTS program less intimidating. Scott Bricker, executive director of America Walks, will provide an overview of the issues surrounding fundraising and share advice on how to determine goals and objectives. Ian Thomas, executive director of PedNet Coalition, will discuss what type of budget your program may need and potential sources of funds. He will also provide tips for successfully raising money from those sources. Kathy Smith, a program officer from Partners for Health Foundation, will provide a foundation's perspective on grant applicants and provide tips on how to look ready for funding.
