Washington, D.C., December 1, 1999--The nation's most
powerful school technology funders will present the
keynote addresses at the GRANTS & FUNDING FOR
SCHOOL TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE in New Orleans
January 27-28, 2000. The conference, sponsored by
eSchool News, will draw hundreds of fundraiser-educators
from across the country to hear these influential insiders
discuss the best approaches for securing a "slice" of
the "$30 BILLION PIE" available for school technology.

KATE MOORE, director of the FEDERAL ERATE AGENCY,
will discuss what educators need to do to secure their
fair share of the $2.4 billion set for distribution
to the nation's schools and libraries in 2000. She
will speak at the first General Session on January 28.

JILL STEPHENS, director of Outreach for the AOL
FOUNDATION'S GRANTS & FUNDING PROGRAM,
will describe how to qualify for some $10 million
in funds from AOL's new major educational programs,
such as PowerUp.

In addition to gaining the inside track on national
federal and corporate grants, conference attendees
will hear from a stellar line-up of SCHOOL
FUNDRAISING SUPERSTARS, who will share the
strategies that landed them millions for their
school districts' technology programs.

This A-list of fundraisers includes MICHAEL V.
GERSHOWITZ, who has written 150 winning proposals
totaling more than $80 million, including 22 federal
and state distance learning grants and one of the
19 Technology Innovation Challenge Grants funded
in 1997 (out of a pool of 679 applicants!). He will
explain what it takes to write a proposal that not
only gets read, but gets funded!

PHILLIP HIBBERT, credited with designing and building
one of the largest educational networks of its
kind--the Cobb Educational Network, funded at $40
million--will reveal his time-tested techniques for
forging long-lasting partnerships with key foundation
executives, pivotal government administrators,
and major corporate donors.

Each of the 18 sessions in this two-day program will
feature fundraising experts from a variety of backgrounds,
including education, government, nonprofit, and corporate.
The two program tracks--Tools & Techniques and Contacts
& Case Studies--will provide state-of-the-art fundraising
strategies. Scheduled breaks in between sessions will
give attendees the opportunity to meet these fundraising
movers and shakers and to network with colleagues.

With so much fundraising expertise under one roof,
the GRANTS & FUNDING CONFERENCE is a must-attend
event for anyone who wants to learn from the nation's
most influential fundraisers how to secure a share of
the more than $30 billion earmarked specifically for
school technology programs. REGISTER TODAY!
