While funding is always a challenge, think tanks the world over have found different models to sustain their efforts. From traditional fundraising, to profit sharing - think tank entrepreneurs have been creative in finding ways to ensure they stay independent, mission focused, and funded.

On April 14, we'll talk with Troy Lanigan, Executive Director of the Canadian Taxpayers' Federation (CTF), and learn about their successful grassroots fundraising model. The CTF boasts thousands of small donors (84,000 to be exact!) , all contributing to reach a budget of 4.7 million CAD last year.

This model both funds the CTF's efforts, and creates a legion of committed, invested supporters who can rally for their campaigns and causes. During this webinar, Troy will discuss how this model was established, and highlight best practices for attracting and keeping small donors invested in your cause.

This webinar is worth one credit within the Atlas Leadership Academy.
