Now, more than ever, downtown organizations are evaluating their funding options and looking for new and better ways to raise the money needed for their on-going operations.
Funding Sources for Downtown Organizations provides an in-depth look at how organizations of all kinds are funded and points to new opportunities and approaches.
Based on a survey conducted in February 2010, the report considers:
- Which funding sources are being used most frequently by six different types of downtown organization.
- How much each of those sources is contributing to the organization’s overall budget.
- Budget changes over time by organization type.
It’s the data you need to benchmark your own operations and to point the way to new or improved funding sources.
The data is supplemented by descriptive text, comments from survey participants, and a funding focus section, which looks at the funding approaches of four very different downtown organizations.
