Did you know that nearly half of the funds most customers use already exist within their district? These include:

  • Formula funding allocations
  • Library budgets
  • Technology funds
  • District foundations
  • Parent organizations

The best strategy for accessing these funds is to include the costs of your Renaissance programs when administrators prepare yearly budgets. If a formal proposal to an administrator is required, we can help.

Foundation or corporate support for education is often focused on specific areas of interest, such as literacy, STEM, elementary education, or secondary education.

Foundations may award grants nationwide, within a specific state, or only in designated regions or communities. Corporations usually offer grants in locations in which their employees or customers live or work.

While foundations and corporations can be a significant source of funds, writing an effective proposal can be a challenge. We can provide you tips and guidance on how best to approach the funder.

The U.S. Department of Education allocates formula funding directly to state education agencies or school districts. Renaissance's research-proven teaching, learning, and assessment tools align with the requirements of these sources.

Grants are highly competitive and require compelling data to support the need, precise plans for your program, and rigorous attention to detail. But receiving a grant can feel like hitting the jackpot! Your funding commitment is often multi-year, and the dollar amounts are usually substantial.

Competitive grant programs include:

  • 21st Century Community Learning Centers
  • Innovative Approaches to Literacy
  • Comprehensive Literacy State Development Grant

The application process is demanding and requires a great deal of detailed information. If you are planning to apply for a grant, we can guide you through the process and suggest how to submit the most competitive application possible.

The number of states providing funding for pre-K as well as the amount of money they are contributing has increased significantly in the past few years.

At the federal level, Head Start and the Child Care and Development Fund have seen recent increases, while additional sources such as Preschool Development Grants and Comprehensive Literacy State Development grants are providing new funding opportunities.

Other programs serving pre-K children are addressed in ESSA (Titles I, II, III, and 21st Century Community Learning Centers) and by the Individuals with Disabilities Act.

Renaissance solutions support ESSA

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) seeks to ensure that all children receive a high-quality education by providing two types of funding – formula funds, which are allocated based on the number of students meeting specific eligibility requirements and competitive funds, which may have student eligibility requirements but are awarded through a selection process. Renaissance can help schools meet goals under ESSA and qualify for formula and competitive funds.
