Focus for Impact: The PacifiCorp Foundation for Learning's Early Childhood Literacy Initiative. Principles for Effective Education Grantmaking. Case in Brief Number 5
Grantmakers for Education
To better advance its mission of promoting lifelong learning, the PacifiCorp Foundation committed in 2001 to begin devoting 20 percent of its grantmaking budget to a long-term, multi-year initiative to support a small number of grantees; trustees chose the area of early literacy for its first initiative. "Focus for Impact" is intended to help funders see ways of applying "discipline and focus"--one of Grantmakers for Education's Principles for Effective Education Grantmaking--to their work. The case study explores trade-offs, benefits and tensions stemming from choosing a discrete area of focus to guide grantmaking.
