Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:  Where do you find the support for all those projects and programs?
When we are contacted by the leadership of a community, neighborhood, tribe, civic,
     or non-profit organization, our Executive Director and volunteers work with them to
     identify partners, prepare proposals, and secure funding and technical expertise
     (see our Contact and Us and Invitation" page).

Q:  Where do you find support for your day to day operations?
Our volunteer Board of Directors and local partners cover approximately 50% of our
     operating expenses. We rely on one-time gifts and annual donations to cover the rest.
