(Washington, DC)—The DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative announced the receipt of a $20,000 grant from the Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation’s Management Assistance Program (MAP) in order to support strategic planning with an emphasis on sustainability.
Specifically the DC Collaborative will be partnering with a financial consulting firm in order to create a revised business model in order to strengthen sustainability. It will also create a fundraising plan that will not only advance a new business model, but will also help identify short and long-term fundraising goals.
“We are very appreciative of this continued support from the Meyer Foundation which will allow us to plan and focus on ensuring the Collaborative’s sustainability for years to come. We are extremely grateful that the Meyer Foundation recognizes the importance of the arts and humanities as part of a high-quality education for DC public and charter school students,” said Louise Kennelly, Executive Director of the DC Collaborative.
This grant will allow the DC Collaborative to build its strategic planning process on a sound growth model and help inform realistic and achievable long-term goals in order to better serve the students in the DC public and chartered public school system and the communities that surround them.
