Wednesday October 18, 2017 9:15 am EDT –

The Schott Foundation will be represented at Grantmakers for Education's 21st Annual Conference, October 16-18, 2017 in Washington, D.C. Creative and Online Communications Director Patrick St. John will present on a panel, entitled:

David Can Beat Goliath: Providing TA to Help Grantees Punch Above Their Weight

Foundations want their grantees to succeed. What is offered beyond the check to aid success? Schott and Communities for Just Schools Fund provide multiple forms of communications support. Community-based nonprofits working to improve their local public schools through parent and youth engagement and/or policy advocacy address inequities in their communities but are themselves underresourced. For many grantees on a shoestring budget, it’s impossible to effectively tell their story; there just isn’t the money or the time. Join this interactive session to explore a menu of tools for providing cost-effective support.
