Looking for Afterschool Funding? The Afterschool Alliance has Information for You

12/6/2005:   Afterschool programs can have important effects on the lives of youth, families, and communities. The problem is, many organizations donít know where to begin searching for funding.

The Afterschool Alliance is working to make fund hunting easier. A section of their website is dedicated to providing organizations with new and updated tools, resources, and help in finding afterschool program funding. The site explains the various funding streams for afterschool programs, including federal, state, local, and private funding, as well as in-kind contributions. Fact sheets also list more than 30 sources of afterschool funding.

New on the site is an online forum on funding, which debuted in August. Instructions on how to pose funding questions to the forum are provided on the site.

The Afterschool Alliance is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of afterschool programs and advocating for quality, affordable programs for all children.
