The Boston Educational Development Fund assists in private grant seeking by aggregating and disseminating funding opportunities for schools and Departments to apply. Particularly, we are shaping our strategies to develop a sustainable school fundraising capacity. Our engagements with schools relies on the available resources to pursue private funding proactively. We support schools to develop online campaigns and to think through effective and diverse ways to achieve their fundraising goals.

Providing Assistance Throughout the School Year

The Fund provides assistance in grants review and submission grants throughout the school year and is providing resources to facilitate the oversight of their collected donations. The Fund offers fundraising training sessions for school leaders to become aware of the foundational documents that will be required to apply for external funding. Moreover, the Fund contracts grant writers as needed and drafts budgets and grant templates to facilitate the completion of proposals.

We look forward to increasing our partnerships with the vibrant Boston community to facilitate additional philanthropic investments in our schools.
