Shirley, Linda; And Others
Sources of funding for programs for at-risk youth are described in this document. The sources listed were selected from experience, and from a search of directories. The information about funding sources for at-risk programs was the result of an Illinois Researcher Information System search as well as hand searches using the following directories and resources: TAFT Foundation, America's Newest Foundations, National Data Book, Directory of Grants in Humanities, The Corporate 500, Annual Registry of Grant Support, and The Corporate 1000 Higher Education Directory. The following strategies for obtaining funding are discussed: (1) locate information on available funding sources; (2) identify potential funding sources; (3) follow proposal procedures within one's own organization; (4) write to potential supporters; (5) make the initial contact with the potential supporter; (6) develop the proposal; (7) submit the proposal; and (8) follow up on the status of the proposal. The name, address, telephone number, contact person, due date, as well as any additional information, are listed for 46 sources. Sources include corporate foundations as well as charitable foundations. (LLL)
