Aleshire Grant Students

Joe and Janet Aleshire Venture Grant Program

The Joe and Janet Aleshire Venture Grant Program is a project offered to students in the LE300 course.  A student team works together to provides funding to stimulate effective non-profit program development that addresses early childhood development (prenatal care to six years of age). Specifically, the team will set funding priorities, develop program applications (“request for proposals” or “RFP”), review budgets and program information of applicants, collaborate on allocation decisions and make allocation recommendations to the United Way Board of Directors.
