In addition to funding, North Star Fund provides skills development through workshops in grassroots fundraising, board development, volunteer management, and working with media. We pool resources with a collaborative of other funders--including New York Foundation, Union Square Awards, New York Women's Foundation, Daphne Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation and Stonewall Community Foundation--to provide the highest quality resources and workshops to our grantees.
