Step 3: Identify Resources

By securing diverse partners who will help support your project, you increase your ability to maximize the impact that your project will have on the community. Potential resources can include: private sponsors, grants, civic and volunteer organizations, local businesses, churches, schools, colleges, and universities, tribal and cultural organizations, arts-based organizations or businesses, and social service organizations.

Even if supporting partners are not able to offer financial assistance to your project, they may appreciate the opportunity to help market the event to their contacts or to provide In-kind donations or volunteer assistance. With a strong mission in place for how your program will improve the culture and quality of life for your community, it will allow you to increase and diversify your support base.
