About this grant
This grant will enable Engage Strategies to prepare comprehensive state reports that provide strategic information about the opportunities and challenges for promoting financial aid reforms in Midwest states. The reports will answer questions such as: How can financial aid reform strategies best be framed to garner support? Who are the most effective champions and spokespersons? and, most importantly, Would a Mott investment leverage change? These assessments will not only help the Foundation identify high impact efforts but also will help organizations active on these issues shape their public education and advocacy strategies and identify critical partners necessary to achieve results. Based in South Carolina, Engage Strategies is a for-profit consulting firm that provides strategic guidance and analysis services to foundations, businesses, and nonprofit organizations.
