Why We Invested:
These grants will support three projects being coordinated by iCivics in 2018. The first will support a strategic plan to coordinate efforts between presidential sites and foundations and the National Archives Foundation, led by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library. The second will support development of a shared strategic plan between iCivics and several congressional study sites, led by the Edward M. Kennedy Institute. The last will fund a plan for collaboration between congressional sites, presidential sites, and iCivics, resulting in a shared strategic plan between these organizations, including planning for collaborative activities, a summary of the assessment of required program enhancements, and an outline of next steps required for program scaling.
