Leveraging Funds: Tools, Insights and Suggestions from Advocates and Funders to Support Your Work and Long(er)-Term Sustainability

As part of our work, Community Catalyst aims to connect state and local partners to funding opportunities as well as to current trends in fundraising and best practices relating to resource development and organizational sustainability. At the end of 2020, we released a toolkit, Sustaining Your Fundraising in the Time of COVID-19. We are now pleased to share a new resource – one focused on the difficult task of not only raising funds to support your work, but leveraging them for long(er)-term sustainability. This collection of Leveraging Funds tools offers insights and suggestions from both advocates who successfully used Health Justice Fund (HJF) grants to secure matching funds for their work as well as an interview with a Georgia funder on how she works to leverage the capital of her foundation to the maximum benefit of her grantees.

Community Catalyst would like to thank Dr. Laura Guerra-Cardus, Scott Darius and Christine Reeves Strigaro for having these conversations with us and sharing their perspectives with our community.
