BellSouth Foundation Accepting Applications for Opportunity Grants

The BellSouth Foundation works to improve education in the South and other communities
where BellSouth operates by "stimulating fundamental change in education institutions and
systems that will result in active learning and improved life chances for all students."

The BellSouth Foundation will invest the majority of its grantmaking funds for 2001-2005 in
special initiatives through a targeted request for proposal process. A limited number of
Opportunity Grants are available for unsolicited proposals that may not fit within the
parameters of a specific BellSouth Foundation initiative, but that appear likely to add value to
the foundation's work within that priority area. In general, Opportunity Grants will be awarded
to programs or projects that: mesh tightly with one of the foundation's strategies; appear to
be interesting and valuable endeavors; offer a complementary strategy for the foundation's
other work; offer a new and innovative approach to a priority issue; provide a supportive
policy-level effort to supplement a foundation priority; or serve as a collaborative practice for
a foundation initiative.
The BellSouth Foundation focuses on education reform activities that will have an impact on a
substantial number of students in school systems or post-secondary institutions, or across
communities, states or regions. Therefore, the foundation generally does not fund single-
school programs, programs with an isolated focus, or community projects that do not have an
education entity at the center.

For complete eligibility information and application guidelines, see the BellSouth Foundation
Web site.
