Funding News and Grant Tips

Drucker Institute Accepting Applications for Drucker Prize for Nonprofits
Founded by Peter Drucker in 2007, the Drucker Institute works to make nonprofits, companies, and government agencies more effective. Dubbed “the man who invented management” by BusinessWeek magazine, Drucker believed that improving organizations’ performance also benefited the society in which they are embedded.
In support of this mission, the institute is accepting applications for the 27th annual Drucker Prize (formerly known as the Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation). Through the program, a single nonprofit organization will be awarded $100,000 in recognition of work that is driving exceptional achievement and best exemplifies Drucker’s own definition of innovation: “change that creates a new dimension of performance.” In addition to the one prize-winner, fifty semifinalists will receive access to comprehensive training and tools on the Drucker Prize learning platform.
See the Drucker Institute website at https://www.drucker.institute/programs/drucker-prize/ for complete program guidelines, a list of past semi-finalists and first-place winners, and application instructions.

Report Urges Nonprofit Boards to Turn Diversity Awareness into Action
Although nonprofit board members are aware of the importance of diversity and inclusion, they lack the knowledge, skills, resources, and commitment needed to turn that awareness into action, a report from executive recruiting firm Koya Leadership Partners argues. 
Based on an online survey of board or executive committee members at more than a hundred nonprofits, the report, The Governance Gap: Examining Diversity and Equity in Nonprofit Boards of Directors, found a significant gap between respondents' intention to increase diversity and the actions they've taken to do so. According to the report, only 24 percent of respondents self-identified as a person of color, while 61 percent said their board does not "adequately reflect the community/communities [the] organization serves" and 70 percent said they were not "content with the current level of diversity and inclusion represented." The report also found that 12 percent of respondents on low-diversity boards (in the bottom quartile for diversity) and 63 percent of those on medium-diversity boards (in the middle quartiles) said increasing diversity was not a key board objective. Among respondents whose boards do see diversity as a key objective, the reasons included "to increase creativity and problem solving," "because diverse skills and perspectives are valuable," and "to recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion."
Despite respondents' awareness of the benefits of a diverse board, the survey also found that 74 percent said their boards do not have a written statement or policy with respect to diversity and inclusion and 15 percent were unsure; only 34 percent said board diversity and inclusion is tied to the organization's overall strategic plan; and only 19 percent said their organizations provide board members with training around diversity and inclusion. In addition, 40 percent of respondents on low-diversity boards and 43 percent of those on medium-diversity boards said they have not implemented recruiting efforts designed to attract members of diverse backgrounds. When asked about obstacles to recruiting diverse board members, 51 percent cited "lack of access to qualified candidates," 21 percent cited "geography," and 18 percent cited "lack of resources."
According to the report, several survey participants mentioned that their boards prioritized fundraising responsibilities over increasing diversity. "However, the notion that there simply aren't people of color with both the passion and the means to be effective board members is untrue," the report's authors argue, before offering strategies for recruiting diverse members. Recommendations include developing a fully articulated strategy for creating a slate of candidates that includes an equal share of people of color; moving beyond current board members' immediate circle of contacts to identify prospective board members; and avoiding tokenism by recruiting multiple board members of color at the same time.

Returns on Educational Endowments Fell in FY18
The endowments of more than 800 U.S. colleges and universities returned an average of 8.2 percent, net of fees, in the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2018, a significant drop from the 12.2 percent recorded in FY2017, a report from the National Association of College and University Business Officers and TIAA finds.
According to the 2018 NACUBO-TIAA Study of Endowments, the decrease in year-over-year performance was driven largely by declines in the U.S. and international equity markets. And while the ten-year average annual return for endowments in the survey rose 1.2 percentage points in FY18, to 5.8 percent, it remained below the 7.2 percent annual return institutions target as a long-term return objective.
Despite the lackluster returns, colleges and universities in the survey reported spending a total of more than $21.6 billion from their endowments on campus operations, with 66 percent of respondents spending more than they did in FY17. According to a new analysis included in this year's report of how those funds were allocated, schools spent 49 percent of their endowment withdrawals on scholarships and other financial aid programs and 16 percent on academic tutoring and related services.
The study also found that larger institutions posted higher average returns in FY18 than smaller institutions, in part because they had higher allocations to alternative strategies such as private equity and venture capital — the only one of the five asset classes in the study with higher average returns in FY18 than in FY17 (8.3 percent, up from 7.8 percent). By contrast, returns for U.S. equities (17.6 percent to 13.6 percent), non-U.S. equities (20.2 percent to 6.8 percent), fixed income (2.4 percent to 0.5 percent), and from short-term securities/cash/other (1.4 percent to 1.3 percent) all fell.

PURPOSE: The complex and changing nature of the opioid overdose epidemic highlights the need for an interdisciplinary, comprehensive, and cohesive public health approach. States, territories, and local partners need access to complete and timely data on prescribing, and on nonfatal and fatal drug overdoses to understand the scope, direction, and contours of the epidemic. They also need the tools and resources to then use data to inform and target their prevention and response efforts. This NOFO integrates work funded through three previous CDC funding opportunities: Prescription Drug Overdose Prevention for States (CDC-RFA-CE15-1501), Data Driven Prevention Initiative (CDC-RFA-CE16-1606) and Enhanced State Surveillance of Opioid-Involved Morbidity and Mortality (CDC-RFA-CE16-1608). This three year funding opportunity will continue work focused on: increasing comprehensiveness and timeliness of surveillance data; building state and local capacity for public health programs determined to be promising based on research evidence; making Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) easier to use and access; and working with health systems, insurers, and communities to improve opioid prescribing. It adds new work focused on linkages to care and other areas of innovation supported by evidence-based practice.

Orphan Disease Center Accepting Applications for Research on CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder
SOURCE: Orphan Disease Center 
APPLICATION DEADLINE: A one-page LOI is due by 3/8/19. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by 4/5/19.
$ AVAILABLE: grants of up to $150,000. 
ELIGIBILITY: Individuals with a faculty-level appointment at an academic institution or a senior scientific position at a nonprofit institution or foundation are eligible to apply.
PURPOSE: The Orphan Disease Center works with closely with community organizations, the biotech community, and researchers to improve therapeutic treatment options for those afflicted with orphan diseases. Oftentimes genetic, orphan diseases are conditions that affect fewer than two hundred thousand individuals nationwide. Due to their relative rarity, research and funding for these conditions is largely unmet.
In support of this mission, the center has partnered with the LouLou Foundation, a pioneer in CDKL5 research, and is accepting applications for the CDKL5 Program of Excellence Pilot Grant Program. Through the program, grants of up to $150,000 will be awarded in support of research focused on treatments for CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder.
Those with CDD suffer from treatment-resistant seizures, severe cognitive and motor disability, as well as sensory problems. Because there are many knowledge gaps in CDKL5 research, the foundation is interested in any basic research with the potential to contribute to future treatment options. Priority areas established by the foundation include innovative therapeutic approaches for CDD, systems biology and computational modeling approaches, novel applications of functional techniques, and discovery and validation of CDKL5 biomarkers.

Webinar - Navigate Government Shutdowns to Get the Money You Need 
SPONSOR: CD Publications 
WHEN: February 27, noon to 1 pm. 
WHERE: Webinar.
DESCRIPTION: The recent federal government shutdown has significantly curtailed grant making at about a half-dozen federal agencies. But seasoned grant seekers know that there is still money out there—you just have to know where to look. 
Join grant professional Frank Klimko to pick up clues and tips on how to find outside-the-box funding opportunities at the federal level. The trick to winning such grants is to understand the budget cycle and to be nimble and move swiftly (federal grants typically have a smaller application window than private ones). Plus, Klimko will arm you with additional concrete survival strategies, such as building the right partnerships to see you through shortfalls.
After attending, you’ll know how to follow the funding and keep track of upcoming competitions so you can get a head start—and you’ll know the best ways to win them.
