Andover Newton now accepting Venture Fund proposals

Andover Newton is pleased to announce the launch of a new endeavor that promises to have a positive and lasting impact on our school:  “FREE TO DREAM:  Entrepreneurial Initiatives for Andover Newton.”  Through this program, members of the wider Andover Newton Community—faculty, staff, students, alums, congregations—can apply for grants to fund creative new initiatives.  This undertaking is made possible through The Venture Fund, a fund started last year for this purpose through special gifts from Andover Newton Trustees now totaling $600,000. 

Please read the official “Request for Proposals (RFP)” link to attachment carefully for details.  The first step in the process is to enroll by filling out the “Proposal Cover Sheet” (included with the RFP).  The cover sheet, and all completed proposals, should be sent to Marjorie Bell in the President’s Office: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

A special educational and celebratory event is scheduled for noon-1:00 p.m. on January 26 in the Peck Room.  At that time, Myra Hart—herself an entrepreneur who has taught entrepreneurship—will give a brief presentation, “Thinking Like an Entrepreneur.”  Her presentation will be followed by an explanation of the FREE TO DREAM grant process.  This event is for anyone interested in learning more about this exciting new venture—whether or not you plan to submit a proposal. 

Please join us and feel free to bring your lunch. Questions that are not answered at that time can be directed to Marjorie Bell:  .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
