Sustaining Effective Programs Even When Grant Funding Runs Out: A Toolkit for Charter School Leadership Teams
By Aimee Evan, An Tran, Kelly Wynveen, National Charter School Resource Center
While grant funding and philanthropic support offer opportunities for charter schools to further their mission and serve students, families, and communities, these funds typically have an end date. Expiring grants create a dilemma for schools: How can a school leader continue funding these effective programs and positions once grant funding runs out?
Charter school leadership teams can use this toolkit and the accompanying Evaluating and Sustaining Funds Excel Worksheet to help evaluate the use and impact of funds, determine how to financially sustain effective programs, and reflect on grant program effectiveness to foster continuous improvement.
This report was produced by the National Charter School Resource Center (NCSRC) in partnership with lead authors Aimee Evan, An Tran, and Kelly Wynveen.
