If you are a Wilburforce Foundation grantee or on the docket for their next grantmaking cycle, there are many ways TREC can help your organization perform its best work. In recognizing the value of TREC’s services to its grantees, Wilburforce Foundation has agreed to underwrite the capacity-building services that TREC provides. As a result of this generosity, TREC can offer you increasingly targeted, in-depth services over time.

TREC Services - Fundraising Program

The logic of this emphasis is two-fold: 1) individuals contribute vastly more money to nonprofits than foundations and corporations, and; 2) a grassroots membership base not only supports the organization financially, but also buttresses environmental issue campaigns. We offer services that cover the wide range of development strategies that nonprofit environmental groups utilize when soliciting support from their constituents.
