Webinar Announcement - Sustaining Your Treatment Court: Using a 501(c)(3) to Fundraise
AU-JPO is hosting this webinar on Thursday, November 3, 2016 from 12:00 PM-1:30PM EST:
The resources of many treatment courts around the country are stretched thin. Dwindling resources, coupled with limitations on using grant funds to pay for participant incentives, has prompted many treatment courts to supplement traditional funding streams through local fundraising activities. The development and creation of a 501(c)(3) non-profit can be a crucial step in sustaining and expanding treatment courts for individual communities. There are also other alternatives to forming a non-profit organization in terms of vehicles for raising and managing donations to benefit your program.
The Bureau of Justice Assistance Drug Court Technical Assistance Project at American University's Justice Programs Office will conduct an interactive webinar session entitled Sustaining Your Treatment Court: Using a 501(c)(3) to Fundraise on Thursday, November 3, 2016 from 12:00 PM-1:30 PM Eastern. This webinar will be presented by Judge William G. Schma, formerly of the Kalamazoo County Circuit Court, and Tracy Velazquez, Associate Director of American University's Justice Programs Office.
