dc.description.abstract This project analyzed the funding environment for online social and emotional support for young adults with Spina bifida. It answered the research question: how to develop a fundable program through assessing the following: 1) identifying key components that make up a fundable program, 2) the proposal process and 3) how foundations make decisions. The methodology included a literature and electronic search of key components to include when developing a fundable proposal, literature search to explore the possible funding environments for human services programs and an application of the components to funding environment using condition. Literature identified five key components making up a fundable program: statement of need, program design, evaluation plan, budget and future funding plans. Within the proposal process, results found six major steps to take: identify funding sources, review successful applicants, nurture foundation relationship, know the audience, simplify program and continue in the faith. Finally, literature found six categories funders address when making decisions: literature review, strength of design, proposal presentation, budget, personnel and benefits to society. Electronic search of possible funders resulted in 10 highly probable foundations to consider and three foundations to develop applications for. Final three foundations included: Community Foundation of North Texas, The Reese-Jones Foundation and The Ethel-Louise Armstrong Foundation. Grant applications were developed for each foundation and are found in appendices. en_US
