Serving the Rural Adult: Private Funding Resources for Rural Adult Postsecondary Education.
Spears, Jacqueline D.
This directory is intended to provide a reference tool for rural educators seeking private sources of funding and includes 91 foundations chosen on the basis of the foundation's interest in rural adult postsecondary education. Sources of information used to identify and research appropriate funding agencies included "The Foundation Directory" (9th Edition), "The Foundation Center Source Book Profiles,""Corporate Foundation Profiles," and "The Foundation Grants Index," as well as annual reports supplied by the foundations themselves. Each of the 91 entries provides information describing that foundation's purpose, funding patterns, geographical area of interest, address, telephone number, and contact. Following the entries is a section designed to help grantseekers locate foundations other than those listed in this directory. This section includes a short bibliography annotating publications of descriptive information regarding foundations, foundation indexes, and guides and self-help manuals. There is also a section which offers tips on how to choose and approach foundations, a section answering most-asked grantmaker questions, and an alphabetical and geographical index of listed entries. A form for evaluating the compilation concludes the document. (PM).
