Funding Technology in Adult Literacy. Practice Guide.
Hopey, Christopher E.; Harvey-Morgan, Joyce
For many literacy organizations, obtaining adequate funding for a technology purchase is difficult and requires additional fund-raising activities outside of the regular program grant-funding processes. While the search for additional funding is time consuming and frustrating, the task can be made easier through careful organization and systematic planning. This guide is designed to assist literacy educators in the development of technology fundraising plans. It offers suggestions on how and where to locate funds. The guide covers a range of topics: connecting technology planning with funding; sources and methods of funding technology; identifying funding sources for technology; matching technology priorities with a potential funder; and writing and marketing a technology proposal. The guide also includes seven appendixes that contain extensive annotated lists of funding sources and ideas for grant writers, a sample cover letter for a fundraising proposal, and six references.
