Evansdale Foundation Investments
Supporting Education Enrichment at Evansdale Elementary
The investment criteria guidelines are intended to help the Foundation board make high quality decisions for funding opportunities. The criteria can be considered as a “yardstick for measuring alternatives.”
Foundation criteria is not intended to prescribe what is to be funded, but rather is used as a tool to determine the opportunities that most closely align with the Foundation mission and meet the current and long-term needs of the school.
All requests identify a clear need of the staff, school, or student body that may benefit from Foundation support.
All requests are evaluated consistently with the investment criteria established by the foundation which ensure equity, reach, enrichment, and resource prioritization.
All requests are formally submitted to the Foundation for review, collaboration, impact review, and acceptance.
