    Partnerships

    Topic 4- Grant Terminology

    Topic 1: Determining What You Want To Do

    Decide what it is you want to do.

    Decide what you need and how much it will cost.

    Find a grant or foundation that will allow you to do

    that.

  • 11

    Do you want to change behavior, change

    curriculum, add more hands-on, increase

    girls participation, increase attendance, or

    get more students to teach each other

    students?

    Do you need a lot of money or will seed

    money do? Can you accomplish your task

    with $1000 or will $100 do?

    Topic 1: Determining What You Want To Do

  • 12

    Do you need technology? Equipment?

    Supplies? Mentors? Cash? Donations?

    What is the minimum you can use and what is

    the maximum you can handle?

    How much will you have to do to get what you

    need? Every grant has reports tied to it.

    Topic 2: Finding A Source of Money

    Learning to ask is the key.

    Scrounging is a teachers middle name.

    Find the right grant for the right need.

    Do I want a small grant, large grant, corporate

    grant, or a foundation grant?

  • 15

    What Will This Grant Fund?

    Believe me, if it says it will not pay for

    technology, it wont!

    Believe me, if it says 4 pages total, they will

    just pull off the last 15 or 19 page entry.

    90% of grant applications fail because the

    applicant fails to follow simple instructions.

  • 16

    What do they want?

    You must address what they are asking you

    for, not what you would like to talk about.

    Think of a crossword puzzle and realize that

    everything must fit just right. Follow the

    guidelines.

    Realize that without a track record you may

    not get everything you ask for. The more

    grants you complete the more money people

    will want to give you.

  • 17

    KEEP TRACK!

    Keep track of the money you spend. Think

    spreadsheet.

    Keep track of people involved and what they

    are doing and how often they are doing it.

    Meet your deadlines or explain why.

    If Florida is on fire and you cant take 300 kids

    in the woods today then explain that to them.

    Remember that nothing is free!

    There are things you need to do for the grant

    and requirements you need to meet.

    There is nothing worse then taking money

    and not using it or spending it the wrong way.

    If you need to change your budget tell them in

    writing and give them the reasons why. Most

    grants follow the 10% rule.

    Topic 3: How to Garner Support and

    Partnerships?

    Spread the word for what you need. I still get

    two or three fish tanks donated each year.

    Try it out on a small scale and then see what

    works. Keep what works and get rid of the

    rest. Set up activity stations and then add

    more.

  • 22

    Get Help When you Need It!

    Ask in your county: Do you have a grants specialist?

    Ask if anyone you know has received one of these grants before.

    Ask the granting agency for someone to mentor you.

    For example, each National Service Learning Leader School is responsible for sharing their knowledge and helping others write service learning grants. Every state has these.

  • 23

    What is a partner and how to find one!

    Volunteers already working with you

    Businesses already helping you

    Mentors, scientists, agencies already working

    with you

    All around you there are partners. Your

    students, parents, administrators, fellow

    teachers, and anyone else you know may be

    able to suggest a partner to help you.

    Topic 4: Grant Terminology

    What are Matching Funds?

    This means that for every $1 you receive from

    a grant you will receive a $1 from John Smith

    or Mary Doe for the project.

    Matching funds requires actual cash for the

    project to match the grant funding amount.

  • 26

    What is In-kind?

    In-kind means any contribution of supplies,

    materials, equipment etc.

    For most grants, human resources fall under

    in-kind but most grants separate it out to help

    with record keeping.

  • 27

    What are Human Resources and how are

    they valued?

    These are volunteer hours from scientists,

    mentors, business people, etc. that are valued

    at a set rate per hour. For example, in the

    State of Florida you can count $18.00 per hour

    for each volunteer you can DOCUMENT! So

    create a sign-in sheet with names, dates, and

    times and have your volunteers sign-in every

    time they work with you.

  • 28

    Get It Written and Then Get Help Again!

    Get the English Department to proof it.

    Get someone out of field to read it. See if your goals are clear to them.

    Dont be discouraged if at first you dont succeed. Keep trying and call the agency and ask what you can do to improve for next time.

    Expect to get half the budget you ask for and plan what you can get done on that.
