Scholarship & Fundraising Opportunities
CCPH's Bobby Gottlieb Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for those unable to participate in CCPH events and programs without financial assistance. Individuals traveling to the conference from the U.S. or Canada may request support from the Fund to partially defray registration, travel and/or lodging expenses. In making a final selection among worthy applicants, a priority will be placed on grassroots community leaders and/or individuals from community-based organizations who are (a) first time attendees or (b) conference presenters. 

For fundraising ideas, we recommend the article “8 Ways to Raise $2500 (or more) in 10 days (or less, sometimes)” from the Grassroots Fundraising Journal. If you need a letter of support to bolster your fundraising efforts, email us at conference@ccph.info.

If you are unable to attend the Conference, we recommend that you send a substitute in your place or apply the fee towards a future CCPH conference or webinar. If you will be sending someone in your place, please email Shelly Tolo, CCPH Conference Organizer, as soon as possible to be sure the person is sent confirmation materials and included in the conference list of participants. If you are unable to find a substitute, your payment will be recognized as a tax-deductible donation to CCPH.
