Fundraising Campaigns for Parks and Trails

CORRE’s grant specialists are skilled in fundraising—in both the public and private realm. Our team can help you secure alternate funding for projects that otherwise may “sit on the shelf” for many years to come. We work with you to match project types with appropriate partners to assure success in funding requests. With an extensive menu of services, CORRE can help with one small aspect of the project or can handle all outreach for you.
