Louis Calder Foundation Invites Letters of Inquiry for Core
Curriculum Education Programs

Deadline: Open

The Louis Calder Foundation ( http://www.louiscalderfdn.org/ ),
a private foundation located in New Canaan, Connecticut, invites
charter and parochial schools to submit preliminary information
on their plans/initiatives to develop/enhance efforts to adopt/
strengthen comprehensive, sequenced, content-rich core curricula
that build general knowledge in grades K-8.

The background letter should focus on the organizations' efforts
to improve academic content by providing a coherent, sequenced,
content-based curriculum during the regular and extended school
day hours as well as during the summer. The curriculum should
address a wide range of classical liberal subjects, including
literature, history, ethics, mathematics, and the sciences.

The foundation is expanding its geographical boundaries to sup-
port organizations along the Northeast Corridor and as far west
as the Mississippi River but will continue to support schools
and organizations within its traditional funding area of the
greater New York metropolitan area. The foundation is targeting
schools and organizations from communities located east of the
Mississippi River with populations no greater than 500,000.

Eligible organizations are invited to submit a brief Letter of
Inquiry detailing their plans and efforts to develop or enhance
a comprehensive, content-rich core curriculum in grades K-8.
Upon review, the foundation will request a complete proposal
for consideration, if necessary.

Visit the Louis Calder Foundation Web site for complete appli-
cation procedures.
