Tell us about your partnerships
Nova Southeastern University is a college in the South Florida area which assists our non-profit in administering the database component of the Bullying Academy. Students in the Know shares office space with Nova employees and works alongside other programs provided by Nova. Two of the directors on our board are also Nova employees. We currently have a grant from google.com/nonprofits in which they provide us with free marketing service for up to $10,000 a month, which renews every month. We have entered into a partnership with the Professor Garfield foundation as we use some of their videos.
What type of team (staff, volunteers, etc.) will ensure that you achieve the growth milestones identified in the Social Impact section? [75 words]
We need effective program coordinators who can answer email inquiries, telephone calls and enter new school registrations into our database in a timely manner. We need professional consultation with a corporate sponsorship specialist to determine which corporations we should be partnering with and what are reasonable prices to set for sponsor packages. We also need our graphic designer and database administrator to finish creation of the payment structure connected to the website, as well as the data warehouse where educators can access all of their students’ scores.
Please elaborate on any needs or offers you have mentioned above and/or suggest categories of support that aren't specified within the list
Marketing the program through appropriate avenues to reach the right school officials is paramount at this time. Potential collaboration or partnerships between our organization and many other types of entities will help us in moving forward, such as educational associations and corporate partners.
Grants from either government sources or private foundations is a possibility.
