This sourcebook provides educators with a comprehensive desktop reference to everything they need to identify and acquire funding for school technology programs. It documents hundreds of technology funding sources--federal, state, and local government agencies, corporate foundations, private endowments, and charitable organizations--all concisely and extensively indexed. The following is provided for each source: contact information, geographic area, restrictions, who is eligible, what is funded, financial information, and how to apply. The directory also features a special appendix guiding readers to organizations that assist schools with fundraising as well as companies that donate computer hardware and software. Additional appendixes cover prospect research, how to research and write winning grant proposals, and popular fundraising myths. (Contains a glossary of common fundraising terms.) (AEF)
