Looking Beyond the Tax Dollar - Alternative Funding 101

Many park and recreation agencies and other public organizations, struggle to fund capital and operating expenses with traditional funding sources typically generated through tax dollars. This session will introduce alternative funding opportunities that can assist agencies, no matter how large or small, in identifying potential new funding sources to help diversify their financial portfolios. Specific topics to be presented include an overview of alternative funding options, methods to evaluate the suitability for an agency and its community, and success stories that have utilized alternative funding for community projects and services.

  1. Define alternative funding and describe how it can assist agencies in diversifying their financial portfolios. 
  2. Identify methods to evaluate different alternative funding sources based on the agency’s mission and goals, as well as the needs and characteristics of its community.
  3. List the benefits and challenges of developing and utilizing alternative funding for community projects and service.
  4. Summarize examples of agencies that have successfully utilized alternative funding for projects and services in their communities.
