Partnership for After School Education

The pressure exerted by growing demand for youth programs and services against a contracting supply of government funding requires staff, board and volunteers to think differently about fundraising.

This new funding climate requires organizations to adopt a new set of fundraising activities focused on diversified funding streams and a strong internal culture of philanthropy. Through a capacity building contract, PASE provides professional development, resources, and best practices in fund development for organizations with DYCD contracts.
