Edward E. Ford Foundation Matching Grant

The National Association of Episcopal Schools (NAES) is pleased to announce a dollar-for-dollar matching grant from the Edward E. Ford Foundation. This grant of up to $35,000 will facilitate the creation of a new professional network of diversity practitioners in Episcopal Schools. Will you help NAES raise the matching $35,000 between July 1, 2017 and July 31, 2018?

This grant will:

  • Bring together diversity practitioners and school chaplains to articulate the link between Episcopal identity and the fostering of equitable and inclusive school climates.
  • Establish an online network for diversity practitioners in Episcopal schools where colleagues can find support, share encouragement, and exchange resources.
  • Establish a diversity and inclusion thread at our Biennial Conference.
  • Develop regional networks to help gather diversity practitioners locally and assist less resourced schools.

Where can the money come from?

NAES is ready and eager to match a grant of $35,000 by drawing upon the following sources of new income, from July 2017 through July 2018:

  • New individual or foundation contributors to the NAES Annual Fund, who did not contribute in the previous (2016-2017) school year. 
  • Individuals, schools, or church-related institutions who contribute above and beyond what they have given to the NAES Annual Fund during the 2016-2017 school year.

Funds from the Edward E. Ford grant would be used exclusively for our work with secondary schools in this effort. As a commitment to all of our member schools, funds raised by NAES in the matching process would in part be used to help assist our PreK-8 schools.
