Diverse Funding: Building an Engine for Change

Presented by:
Brenda Bandy, Executive Director, Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition

Looking for ways to fund paid staff? Have a great idea but no resources to get started? State breastfeeding coalitions are continually looking for funding to implement programs, build capacity and in general change the landscape of breastfeeding support in their state. If coalitions are the engine of change, then funding sources are the “gears” of the engine. The Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition will discuss how they are building an engine for change one “gear/funder” at a time. The KBC will share practical examples of diverse funding sources for state breastfeeding coalitions and the “oil” that makes it all work - relationships!
