The National Alliance for Rural Policy (NARP) presents the seventh in a series of Investments in Rural America webinars: Strengthening Rural Organizations through Grassroots Fundraising. Nonprofit organizations located in rural areas often have a difficult time raising money through traditional methods. While most grant-making foundations tend to concentrate on urban regions of the country, it is critical to identify and develop the resources that rural communities have in order to strengthen organizations that serve these communities.
