INFUSE II Training/Grant Application Available, Due February 14
INAPEF has secured a grant from The Lilly Endowment to conduct a second round of our INFUSE training program for public education foundations in Indiana March 10-11. The INFUSE program is a capacity-building training program that will provide foundation leaders with the organizational structure, leadership and fundraising skills to position themselves as a pivotal fundraising force for their public school districts.
INAPEF is partnering with The Fund Raising School to present an intensive two-day program in which an executive director and board member or top two leaders in a volunteer-driven foundation MUST attend together. Participants will be trained in the areas of Organizational Structure, Leadership and Fundraising. The foundation teams will develop a list of 3-5 things to implement within 90 days in their foundation. Ninety days after the training, a follow-up session will be held and participants will report progress. The same two participants in the March training, must attend the follow-up training 90 days later.
For completing the requirements, foundations will receive $1,500 to $5,000 in capacity-building funds. These capacity-building funds must be doubled through matching efforts by your foundation and noted in your budget. These funds must be new money and not taken from the current foundation budget. The doubled funds might be used for staffing, strategic planning, marketing, fund raising training for the board, or endowment campaign development.
An application form to participate in INFUSE II is available here.
Applications are due February 14, 2014. Applicants will be notified by the end of February regarding participation in the March 10-11 training.
A complete timeline is available in the application along with other details for participation. Contact Teresa Ransdell, association manager, with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317.697.2601.
