Licensing Agreement and Subscription Services

 

Licensing Agreement

HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM

The Junior Cohort Program Curriculum and Guidebook and the Senior Cohort Program Curriculum and Guidebook are available through a licensing agreement which describes the terms, conditions and rights given in order to use the intellectual property. Such rights include authorization for you to copy the materials for the purpose of educating the student participants in your program. It also grants permission for you to place your community foundation’s name and logo and your program’s name and logo on learning materials. Thus, you can promote and operate the program under your own brand.

Once the Initial Licensing Agreement is consummated, you will receive the Junior Cohort Program Curriculum and Guidebook – First Edition in digital format and you will have access to all materials at all times. During the first year, we provide, without charge, technical assistance on every aspect of delivering the program throughout the year.

The following year, after you have selected the second cohort of juniors and upon consummation of a Licensing Renewal Agreement, you will receive the Junior Cohort Program Curriculum and Guidebook – Second Edition in digital format. This edition replaces the previous one. It contains updated information such as the most current philanthropy data, nonprofit statistics, financial charts, recent changes to relevant subject matter along with revised module descriptions, refinements to handouts and media content and enhanced learning interactives. This process of updating information continues in each subsequent year and, upon consummation of each one-year Licensing Renewal Agreement, you receive a new edition for that current program year.

As the junior cohort advances to become the senior cohort, you receive, upon consummation of an Initial Licensing Agreement, the Senior Cohort Program Curriculum and Guidebook – First Edition which is also distributed in digital format. We continue to provide, without charge, technical assistance on every aspect of delivering the program throughout the year. The following year, after the next Junior Cohort progresses to the Senior Cohort and after signing a one-year Licensing Renewal Agreement, you receive the Senior Cohort Program Curriculum and Guidebook – Second Edition. All subsequent editions are also available through a one-year Licensing Renewal Agreement.

With the consummation of the Initial Licensing Agreement for both the Junior Cohort and the Senior Cohort publications, Three Pillars Initiative staff will provide an on-site training session for the program coordinator and mentors. There is no fee for this service although travel-related costs are to be reimbursed.

Subscription Services

Each publication contains articles on subjects such as creating community impact (original and reprinted), current events in the nonprofit sector, best practices in philanthropy and other sections including a letters-to-the-editor. Your community foundation name and program name are prominently displayed on the cover of each publication. It is designed in a format that provides space for you to add your own news content to the publication on each issue. Such information might include current news about the junior and senior cohorts, alumni news or articles from your most current community foundation newsletter.

Subscription fees are charged to the foundation on a per student/ per edition basis. The subscription list is subject to your review and authorization prior to the distribution of each edition.

It also provides information on continuing education resources such as professional seminars and conferences, workshops and webinars. Similar to the College Program, your community foundation name and program name are prominently displayed on the periodical which is also designed to provide space for your own news content.

Subscription fees are charged to the foundation on a per subscriber/ per edition basis. The subscription list is subject to your authorization prior to sending out each edition.
