If grant funding is your primary resource for funding your FDC, then your FDC may not have the infrastructure to sustain itself in this economic climate. Real sustainability planning involves moving beyond the boundaries of your FDC as a project towards a focus on systems thinking and change. This workshop will explore what sustainability and real systems change looks like by looking at refinancing and redirection strategies along with guiding FDC teams from “project-thinking” towards “thinking.” This workshop is only for professionals who do not accept barriers as status quo but rather use them as targets for change.
