National Webinar:May 18, 2010
Grantmakers investing in improving education can play an important role in the U.S. Department of Education's Innovation (i3) Fund competition, particularly the requirement that i3 applicants obtain a 20 percent match in private funds or in-kind donations. With the Department's i3 Fund disbursement set for September 30, a number of grantmakers across the country are helping eligible nonprofit organizations, schools, and school districts with applying to the Fund as well as with meeting the private match requirement.
To provide some guidance to education funders and hear how other funders are considering how best to "make the match," we hear from two grantmakers from The Wallace Foundation and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation who present examples of their foundation's involvement in these efforts, discuss challenges and opportunities encountered in the process, and offer strategies for making the process more efficient and effective..
