The community spoke and we listened. To ensure that Excellent Schools Now (ESN) better represents underserved and underrepresented students and communities, the ESN Steering Committee, comprised of LEV, Partnership for Learning, and Stand for Children – Washington, is re-opening the ESN Steering Committee grant process. Available are two 18-month grants of up to $80,000. These grants are intended to enable recipient organizations to operate as full partners on the ESN steering committee as we mobilize our work on the priorities, educate grassroots and grasstops activists about the ESN policies, and recruit additional organizations to the coalition. Sound like something your organization could be interested in? Applications are due May 17.
Our colleagues at Partnership for Learning will also be hosting a conference call, April 29 at noon, to go over the grant application and answer questions.
Details for the call
April 29, 12 p.m.–1 p.m.
