EAST CHICAGO |  Funders are savvy, which means youth-serving organizations need to take a more strategic approach to securing money for their missions.

To help nonprofits find more funding, the Indiana Youth Institute is hosting a forum that will explore how to create a better approach to fundraising.

The forum will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, at Healthy East Chicago, 100 W. Chicago Ave. There is plenty of free parking at the site.

As part of IYI’s Youth Worker Café program, the forum is free and lunch will be served, but reservations are required by Monday. To make a reservation, contact Cynthia Rivas of Healthy East Chicago at (219) 397-6863 or Reservations may also be made by contacting IYI Northwest Indiana Field Representative Stephan Gill via text at (219) 314-9516 or email at

The forum will feature Falicia Brewer, president of Brewer & Associates, a professional management service for nonprofits. Brewer has procured more than $20 million during the past two decades for her clients. She will discuss the tips, tools and resources on strategies funders want to see from nonprofits.

Youth Worker Cafés are designed to bring together local youth workers to build relationships and inspire collaborations that will benefit children.
