About this Guide…

Dear Sullivan Renaissance participant:

Sullivan Renaissance has assembled this resource guide as a tool for groups involved in our various grant programs. It contains tips and resources on fundraising, marketing, horticulture, volunteer recruitment, sustainable practices, and more.

We encourage you to share this guide with members of your group, and make copies of handouts and other materials as needed. Additional copies of the guide can be provided upon request, and the information can also be downloaded here by chapter. The guide is continually being updated, so if you have a suggestion for information you would like to see added, please give us a call at (845) 295-2445. Thank You!

- Sullivan Renaissance Staff
