Webinars

Starting a Fundraising Program
Wednesday, April 26 | 3:00 – 4:00 pm ET

Fundraising is the number one concern for community media operations across the country.  But if you have no experience raising money, where do you begin?  How do you start activities with a limited budget? What are the resources you should turn to? How do you decide where to spend your time?
We’ll talk about how to get things kickstarted, and the tools you need to support raising money for your mission. Join us with your questions!
Moderator: Mike Wassenaar, President, The Alliance for Community Media
Speakers:
Tony Spearman Leach, Director of Development & Communications, Montgomery Community Media and
Sara Garry, Director of Advancement and External Relations, Saint Paul Neighborhood Network

Journalism Partnerships

Building collaborations and partnerships is essential to fundraising, expanding services, and maximizing outreach. These relationships help your access center stay fresh, ultimately leading to increased visibility and local relevance. One area for PEG Access center expansion has been local journalism programs. During this webinar we will hear from presenters about their successful news programs, as well as ideas for newsroom collaborations. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions, and will take away some tangible ideas.
