John Kelker: Tough Decisions
Imagine you had $680,000 to distribute to any local education-based program which applied for funding.
Now imagine you received a little more than $1.3 million in requests from local programs.
How would you determine which programs to fund?
How would you determine which programs would best use the money?
Which programs could best serve our community?
If not the full amount, how much funding does each program need to fully serve their clients?
There is no doubt the decisions would be tough; unmet needs would still exist and not everyone would be pleased with the decisions you made.
