Dream big. It's what economic developers do. Prosperity. Jobs. Investment attraction. 

Putting all the right pieces into place so you can realize those dreams sometimes requires investment. And sometimes budgets don't allow for all you'd like to do to help your community grow. If your organizational accountants have been wagging their fingers in your face, it's time to get creative. Join us for "Practical Fundraising Strategies for Economic Development." This free, 30-minute webinar (Tuesday, Nov 17th, at 2 p.m. EST/ 11 a.m. PST) , takes you far beyond the bake sale, to consider serious ways to leverage serious dollars.
