The Brady Education Foundation is now accepting applications for two types of education projects for underserved youth. These education projects include program development and program evaluation:

1.Program Development: These projects develop and test the feasibility of new programs for promoting positive cognitive and/or achievement outcomes for children (birth through 18 years) from underserved groups and/or low-resourced communities (minority ethnic groups, low-income families). For this type of project the Foundation favors projects that:

 

  • Represent strong collaborative relationships between researchers and practitioners, and other community stakeholders as appropriate, and where the community/population being studied is represented in the project's leadership team;
  • Develop programs consistent with strength-based approaches rather than deficit models;
  • Leverage other funding;
  • Develop programs that, in addition to showing promise of being effective, show promise of being affordable, accessible and sustainable.
  • Consider the specific and unique assets and needs of children from underserved populations and/or low-resourced communities (e.g., minority ethnic groups, low- income communities). Concerning race and ethnicity, the Foundation seeks to increase understanding of what works best for children from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds (e.g., African American, Latino, Native American).

 

2.Existing Program Evaluation: These projects evaluate the effectiveness of programs designed to promote positive cognitive and/or achievement outcomes for children (birth through 18 years) from underserved groups and/or low-resourced communities (minority ethnic groups, low-income families). For this type of project, the Foundation favors projects that:

 

  • Represent strong collaborative relationships between researchers and practitioners, and other community stakeholders as appropriate, and where the community/population being studied is represented in the project's leadership team;
  • Evaluate programs consistent with strength-based approaches rather than deficit models;
  • Projects for which operational funding for the program is already secured so that funding from the Foundation is used only for evaluation activities;
  • Evaluate programs that show promise of being affordable, accessible and sustainable;
  • Projects that employ randomized control designs (including wait-list control designs when assignment to the wait-list condition is randomized). Comparison group designs may also be employed when strong efforts are made to control for potential confounding variables (e.g., due to selection effects). The Foundation rarely funds evaluation projects that employ neither randomized control nor comparison group designs;
  • Projects that evaluate effects on measurable child outcomes.
  • Consider the specific and unique assets and needs of children from underserved populations and/or low-resourced communities (e.g., minority ethnic groups, low- income communities). Concerning race and ethnicity, the Foundation seeks to increase understanding of what works best for children from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds (e.g., African American, Latino, Native American).

 

Grant Amount: Grant amounts not specified.

Eligibility: Grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations only. The foundation will not fund scholarships, capital projects, projects outside of the United States, evaluations conducted by for- profit organizations or the development of programs intended to become for-profit entities, program development and evaluation for children at risk for poor cognitive and academic outcomes due to medical conditions (including developmental delays or disabilities associated with biological causes) or substance abuse, scaling up programs already found to be effective nor for continuing education for providers.

The Global Fund for Children supports organizations based on their demonstrated potential to produce sustainable improvement in the lives of vulnerable children and youth and to serve as a resource or model for other organizations.

Organizations and grantee partners must focus on the most vulnerable populations, or the children of “the last mile”-those who are economically and socially outside the reach of mainstream services and support, including street children, child laborers, AIDs orphans, sex workers, hard-to reach rural populations, and other vulnerable or marginalized groups. Priority will be given to organizations that engage children and youth as active participants in their own growth and development, rather than as passive recipients of services.

Criteria:

•Appropriate size and stage of development: Prospective grantee partner’s annual budget should not exceed $200,000. In most cases, new grantee partners have budgets in the $25,000 to $75,000 range. The aim is to identify organizations at a relatively early stage of development. 

•Direct involvement with children and youth: Perspective grantee partners must work directly with children and youth. Foundation does not support groups engaged exclusively in advocacy or research.

•Capable management: Grantee partners must have systems and processes for ensuring responsible management of funds. At a minimum, an organization must have basic accounting and reporting systems as well as phone and email access.

•Local Leadership: Grantee partners must be led by individuals who live and work in the community. We prioritize organizations whose leaders were born and raised in the community they serve.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts not specified.

Eligibility: All applicant organizations or sponsoring agencies must be exempt from federal taxation under the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). If the political context makes legal registration unfeasible, the organization must demonstrate nonprofit equivalency . There is no start-up funding for the creation of a new organization.

Due Date: Applications accepted on an ongoing basis.
