PromiseNet is a convening of practitioners, policymakers, and researchers to learn more about the College Promise movement…┬áPromiseNet 2016 will enable discussions around local place-based scholarship programs, community economic development models, and efforts underway to replicate and scale the College Promise with state and federal support.”

We look forward to attending this year’s PromiseNet, where Principal Rick Kiernan will be a panel participant in the “Promise Program Funding Lab.” After working with several Promise Initiatives on their funding feasibility study and campaign needs, Rick has developed a deep understanding of the unique funding challenges Promise Initiatives face and the proper positioning and funding approach needed to successfully overcome them.

If you’d like to learn more about Convergent’s recent work with Promise Initiatives, as well as discuss your own funding needs, please email us at to schedule your one-on-one consultation with Rick in D.C.
