Closing the Loop on Investing and Reinvesting in Violence Prevention

Prevention doesn’t just improve health and safety, it saves communities money in the long run. Yet too often, organizations must scramble and compete against each other to find new ways to fund their prevention work.

Sustainable funding mechanisms for sexual and domestic violence prevention efforts can help. Join Prevention Institute (PI) and the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation in discussing how these mechanisms work on August 13th for the last PreventConnect Web conference of 2015.

Thursday August 13, 2015
11:00 am – 12:30 pm PT/ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm ET

We’ll discuss how to more effectively make the case for the sustained funding of prevention efforts and how to set in place a system to invest – and reinvest – in prevention, by drawing on key concepts from PI’s Closing the Loop paper. We’ll also share successful examples and tools to refine local work in prevention and funding.
