Community Fundraising Activities

The links on this page have been gathered to allow community adult education programs to investigate what other education programs are doing to help raise money for their programs. Some links are to K -12 programs who have long been struggling with funding for additional activities not covered by their normal budget. It is our hope that this page will help in some way. 

Please be sure to check the National LINCS Grant database for further funding opportunities: National LINCS Funding Database
