What do you do when your good work has your residents asking for more, but your taxes and fees can barely support your current parks, facilities, events, and programs? Wouldn't it be nice to snap your fingers and change your funding reality? Even Thanos, the mighty villain to the Avengers, couldn't change his reality without dedicating his life to collecting the six infinity stones. Maybe that is the secret.......weekly dedication to fundraising strategies! Join us to discuss six strategies to fundraising that when used together, create a fundraising gauntlet that will make you feel like you are adding a new revenue stream. Be ready to share your experiences as well. Alternate realities exist, and we want to learn what has worked for you too!
