The Role of Philanthropy in Education with Joshua Elder
This month we’re talking about money. That’s right, funding plays a huge role in achieving equity in education and we are exploring the many facets of the world of philanthropic educational funding. We dig deep into the grant-making process, including what makes a grant proposal stand out, tips for finding funding resources, and more with our friend, Joshua Elder, director of grants management at the Siegel Family Endowment.
Joshua also shares his experiences of growing up in rural Virginia and how a teacher’s encouragement led Josh to teach halfway around the world before eventually pivoting to his philanthropic work.
