Finding Corporate Resources. Maximizing School/Business Partnerships.
This guidebook contains practical advice on how schools, school systems, and educational programs can uncover, obtain, and make the most of all kinds of resources from corporations and businesses. The book consists of 16 chapters organized in two parts. The four chapters of the first part, Operating in the Corporate Arena, provide background information and practical hints on taking the mystery out of corporations, acquiring savvy for the corporate experience, developing corporate outreach skills, and administering corporate relationships. In the second part, Mastering the 12 Corporate Resources, 12 chapters explain the following kinds of resources corporations have that can be made available to the community and to schools if the corporations are willing and able to contribute them: events, human resources, influence, information, in-kind contributions, leadership, mandatory involvement, money, material resources, partnerships, programs, and relationships. Each of the 12 chapters contains 10 major sections: sample challenge, possible outreach solution, resource description, explanation of the corporate resource, source of the corporate resource, examples of the resource, pros and cons for corporations, and pros and cons for the schools. Three appendixes include a corporate and foundation resources worksheet, a relationship record, and a contributions record. (KC)
