    • Webinar

    FPN is excited to bring this very popular session from our recent Statewide Summit on Philanthropy to our full membership. 

    With finite resources, how do we prioritize philanthropic activities in our communities? Further, having made interventions, how do we determine their level of impact and overall effectiveness?

    The U.S. Prosperity Index has been developed as a transformational tool to help inform the strategic priorities within your communities and monitor the impact of related initiatives and programs. For each county in Florida, a detailed assessment of prosperity, identifying their strengths and weaknesses, can be accessed here.  A summary report on the performance of Florida’s counties compared to other counties across the United States can be found here.

    During this session, Shaun Flanagan, Director of Impact & Partnerships at the Legatum Institute, will explain what is meant by prosperity, how it is measured and the resources available to you, to help better understand the extent to which your communities are attaining economic, institutional and social well-being and what might be some of the barriers preventing this.

    This program is free and open to all FPN Members. Please join us!

    For programmatic questions, please contact Geula Ferguson.

    Supporting education issues, Organizations & needs in Florida

    Join us as we begin with a site visit to Highpoint Elementary, at which the Helios Education Foundation and the Pinellas Education Foundation invested in research-based, high quality professional development about the Science of Reading. Now, highly skilled teachers are using their new skills and tools to help striving readers grow into confident reading scholars.

    We will get a firsthand look at the results by:
    •            Visiting a classroom to see the Lastinger Center’s Flamingo Small Group Reading Instruction Model in action with young scholars.
    •            Hearing a teacher share how the job-embedded professional development and coaching revolutionized their literacy instruction.
    •            Learning how this philanthropic investment has changed the trajectory of a school and children’s lives.

    Then join your colleagues for a deep dive into examples of collective impact models addressing education needs from early learning to post-secondary success.  We will also plan for policy engagement leading up to and including the 2023 legislative session.  Our final presentation will be “Ask an Educator” where a variety of EAG members’ questions around textbook adoption, how instruction is impacted by recent legislation, addressing chronic absenteeism & tardiness, etc.
