New Reports: Financing Out-of-School Time Program

Posted by on January 10, 2003

The Finance Project is pleased to announce the publication of two new publications focusing on strategies for financing out-of-school time programs. For printed copies of any of these publications, contact Charlene Whitfield, Fulfillment Officer, The Finance Project, 202-587-1000.

“Replacing Initial Grants: Tips for Out-of-School Time Programs and Initiatives.” Replacing initial grants is about more than finding dollars. Although long-term sustainability planning must necessarily include a focus on funding, it depends upon more than just maintaining sufficient dollars. This publication describes actions, both large and small, that can help program leaders secure sustainable resources. The six tips are based on The Finance Project’s extensive body of work on financing Out-of-School time programs. (Elisabeth Wright and Sharon Deich, December 2002)

“Documenting Progress and Demonstrating Results: Evaluation Local Out-of-School Time Programs.” This guide provides out-of-school time practitioners with techniques, tools, and strategies they can use to improve their programs and track their effectiveness over time. It is also intended to provide information about multiple aspects of evaluation, so program stakeholders can become more informed participants and, thereby, more empowered in the evaluation of their programs.
