Private Finances for Public Junior Colleges: Introductory Ideas.
Kelley, William G.
This examination of non-tax-support for junior colleges disclosed that few of them are taking full advantage of available private, corporate, or foundation funds. As foundations appear to be the most likely contributors, the author has presented suggestions for preparing the request for funds. Among items on the preparation checklist, the asking agency is reminded to (1) keep in mind that a challenging program is usually more attractive than a crisis case; (2) do thorough research on the foundation's interests, purpose, and way of operating; (3) be sure of the names and titles of the officers; (4) find out what form the preparation should take, whether preferred or mandatory; (5) describe the project completely (current state, foreseeable development, value of expected results); (6) list present assets (funds, facilities, equipment, staff), specify additional needs, and prepare an itemized budget for their use; (7) include the qualifications of the senior staff; (8) do not submit the same proposal to another foundation until the first has made a decision. Other factors, alternatives, and cautions, as well as case histories, are given. (HH)
