A Whopping 90% of the People Who Attended This Webinar Rated It As Great to Excellent!

Funders like to fill the community’s unmet needs. This webinar will provide you with a step-by-step guide through the process of evaluating, designing, and growing funding through programs that deliver your mission and bring in funding.


Programs deliver our mission to the community. They drive fundraising, marketing and staffing. They are the reason we exist. Programs should drive funding rather than the other way around.


Join topic expert Zoot Velasco as he helps you design programs worthy of funding. His award-winning programs doubled in budget and scope each year. A single outreach program in 2009 serving 900 grew to 12 programs in 45 sites serving more than 25,000 youth last year with a program budget increasing from $100,000 to $600,000. His organization won the California Superintendent of Education Award for Museum Excellence for the programs he designed.

  • How To Speak Program Design (Important for program funding!)
  • How To Evaluate What You Have
  • How To Articulate The Need
  • How To Make The Case For Change
  • Preliminary Funding

What Attendees Said about This Webinar: 

“In addition to lots of good information and tips, this webinar provides a simple roadmap on how to fund programs, new and old.”

Heidi Pickman, California Association for Micro Enterprise Opportunity


“Very engaging presenter. He was very good at speaking about the broader issues without being tied directly to his slides. The worst presenters are those who simply read what is already on the slide, but Zoot was able to use the slide as the jumping off point for an intelligent monologue about fundraising.”

John Federico, Ralston Center
