Checklist for Funders: Investing in Youth Transtioning From Foster Care (2011)
This checklist is intended to support the decision making process of new as well as veteran funders who are seeking to invest in supports and services for youth transitioning from foster care. This checklist goes beyond traditional questions of due diligence to focus on ways to leverage the learning of previous investors, to identify potential partnerships, and to take into account current policy issues and opportunities.
This checklist provides a series of questions for funders to consider as they design investments to support youth transitioning out of foster care. New funders can use the checklist as a guide for designing an investment for the first time. Veteran funders can use this tool to double-check they have completed key steps that maximize opportunities for leverage as well as take into account changes in the policy landscape.
