Round 1: 15 - 20 opportunitiesRound 2: 6 -8 opportunitiesThe Pitch: 3 opportunities
For opportunities to secure a pitch spot at our Investment Forums, the first step is for an organization that works with the pre-natal to age five population in Colorado to submit an idea tied to a funding request. Constellation Philanthropy staff will review the proposals and present to the member-comprised Investment Committee, who will then select 6 – 8 proposals to move forward.
Proposals best suited for success:• Geared towards early childhood and related to the Colorado Early Childhood Framework focus areas of family support, health & well-being, or learning & development.• Clearly demonstrate a “why” – what is the prevalence of your problem within the early childhood system and why is your project an appropriate solution?• Focused on low-income populations throughout Denver Metro, although we consider proposals throughout Colorado based on a clearly demonstrated need.• Typically, project-based, highlighting an innovation or filling a critical gap area.• An opportunity for catalytic investment, either first dollar in or piloting a new concept.• In the range of $50,000 - $175,000 for one year. We have done multiple year funding as well.
