2 Welcome to CGS!Florida On behalf of the Florida Department of Education, Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) and the Florida Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (FASFAA), thank you for your support of CGS!Florida. Our collaborative efforts will ensure more students receive access to free grants or scholarships to help pay for college. Throughout the state of Florida, there are many efforts underway to ensure students know about the numerous financial aid opportunities and how to access them. However, with so many students, it can be hard to make significant impact without collaborating with organizations to reach a larger population. With growing numbers of non-traditional students, it is necessary to mobilize in order to reach all college-bound students. CGS!Florida employs college-access marketing techniques aimed at ensuring service to our currently underserved populations. This workbook is designed to provide you with the tips and tools needed to bring CGS!Florida events to students and families in your community.

6 What is College Goal Sunday? Who started it? College Goal Sunday began in Indiana in 1989 as a joint project of the Indiana Student Financial Aid Association (ISFAA) and the State Student Assistance Commission of Indiana (SSACI), with funding from Lilly Endowment, Inc. Why did it start? College Goal Sunday was designed to meet a specific need. Research showed that Indiana families listed high costs as the main barrier to college attendance, even though tens of millions of dollars were available to Indiana students in various forms of financial aid. Too many families particularly those of color, low income, and no tradition of pursuing higher education beyond high school were not applying for the available funds. Availability of funds was not enough to push these students over the threshold to higher education. The students and families needed two more things: First, more information through a multitude of channels about the availability of financial aid; second, expert assistance in filling out the paperwork required to qualify for aid. What is the goal of College Goal Sunday? The goal of College Goal Sunday is to inform families of color, low income, and first generation college-going students of the various forms of financial aid assistance available for higher education and help them fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Assistance (FAFSA) to qualify for those funds.
7 How was CGS successful? A two-part strategy was devised to address the problem. First, ISFAA members primarily college financial aid staff throughout the state volunteered their time and expertise on one particular day of the year. On College Goal Sunday (traditionally a week or two after Super Bowl Sunday), professionals would travel to selected community sites across Indiana to help families complete their FAFSA, the universally required financial aid application. Second, the group implemented an extensive public information campaign to reach lowincome Indiana residents prior to the College Goal Sunday event. The campaign used the news media, direct mail, and celebrity appearances at key high schools to inform the public about the importance of an education beyond high school, the availability of financial aid, and the existence of College Goal Sunday to help them complete the FAFSA. What is College Goal Sunday now? College Goal Sunday is now a nationwide effort administered by USA Funds running in January, February, and March to inform low-income families of financial aid opportunities for higher education. In 2012, 41 states and U.S. providences participated in the College Goal Sunday Campaign. How can you help? Apply to host a College Goal Sunday event by contacting the CGS!Florida State coordinators: Lori Auxier; Jan Smith; Or find out more information about volunteering at a site near you at:
8 College Goal Sunday in Florida Florida has its own challenges regarding the discrepancy in access to higher education. There are many efforts and organizations working to inform students of their post high school education options. For this reason, CGS!Florida strives to utilize the people and networks already working in schools and colleges as a starting point for event planning. CGS!Florida Goals Increase the number of students, especially those from under-served populations, who complete their FAFSA. o Low-income o First generation in college o Students of color o Youth in foster care o Homeless/Unaccompanied minors Partner to maximize attendance at existing and new financial aid nights. Drive students who attend financial aid nights to CGS!Florida events so they can finish filing their FAFSA. Support students and families through the entire financial aid process including: initial FAFSA filing, making corrections, tax updates, verification, and understanding financial aid award letters. Demonstrate Florida s ability to collaborate and address challenges young people face in accessing higher education. Make the best use of public and private foundation funds by leveraging resources and streamlining efforts to help students through the financial aid process.
9 Getting Started College Goal Sunday is a practical way to assist students and their families on their way to a higher education. By hosting a CGS!Florida event in your community, you will be helping a student not only learn about financial aid opportunities, but help them complete the first step to receiving financial aid filing the FAFSA. Are you excited about the potential of CGS!Florida in your community? Here are the steps you need to take to get started with your event! Step 1 - Learn more about CGS!Florida College Goal Sunday has a site specifically for the CGS!Florida Campaign: This website is a great resource to give you and your students an idea of what the campaign is like in Florida.

Step 2 - Assemble a team to help you plan your event The site coordinator has many responsibilities planning and running their event as well as communicating with the CGS!Florida state coordinators Lori Auxier and/or Jan Smith.

Step 4 Stay informed and start planning Now that your community is registered to host a CGS!Florida site, make sure you stay in the loop for information and updates throughout the CGS!Florida season. Be on the lookout for reminders and communication from the State Coordinators. We will check in on your planning process and provide updates when we ship your materials via . o An initial host site notification provided information on whether or not your site was chosen to receive CGS!Florida funding. For 2015, a maximum of 67 sites will be selected to receive a $100 administrative budget. One administrative budget will be awarded to one site in each county. (If not all counties are represented during CGS!Florida, additional administrative budgets will be disseminated among additional sites for larger counties.) If your host site was selected to receive an administrative budget, please follow the reimbursement instructions in the wrap-up section of this manual. For 2015, a maximum of 67 sites will be selected to receive a $250 scholarship budget. One scholarship budget will be awarded to one site in each county.

15 The state coordinators will choose one scholarship recipient per selected host site at random from the event participants that complete the official online CGS!Florida student survey. Site coordinators will be notified of the scholarship recipients within 2 weeks of the event. The state coordinators will then work with the FASFAA to disburse the funds within 4 weeks of the event. All scholarship checks will be sent directly to the student and will be co-payable to the student and the accredited, postsecondary institution of their choice. Continue to check the website for events in and around your area. If you have event planning questions, concerns or suggestions that you would like to share with other site coordinators, please forward them to the state coordinators for distribution. Let s work together to make CGS!Florida a success! The state coordinators will host webinars and training sessions among site coordinators and volunteers to streamline our statewide efforts. These events will also give site coordinators the opportunity to share information and support one another. There will also be required webinars regarding FAFSA filing and financial aid provided for your volunteers helping with FAFSA filing and one-on-one support. FAFSA webinars will be available on demand for volunteers who are unable to attend the initial event. Event Planning Now that you have your date set and your team members assembled, you can start planning your event, recruiting volunteers, and getting the word out about CGS!Florida.
16 In the following section, we have provided resources to help get your event ideas off the drawing board and into reality. This section includes: Examples on a variety of ways to organize your event(s). A planning checklist and timeline to make sure you are on track with your planning. How-to guides for your task force members regarding media contact, student outreach, and community partner and sponsor outreach. A list of student and parent resources with instructions on how and where to order them before your event. We are always available for questions and concerns. Contact the state coordinators with issues that arise. Event Organization and Focus CGS!Florida has evolved into three types of events targeting various audiences and offering different resources to those audiences. The three events are: FAFSA Filing and Support Only FAFSA Filing plus Understanding Financial Aid FAFSA Filing plus On-site Tax Preparation (United Way Real$ense) Decide the type of event you would like to offer at the beginning of your planning, so you can keep your target audience in mind when developing the details of your event and outreach strategy. On the following pages, we will outline some of the benefits of these different models and pose some questions to help you decide which type of event best fits the needs of your community. Please choose the event model that best suits your location no later than November 30. If you do not respond by the posted deadline, the state coordinators will default your selection to Event Model 1.
17 Event Model 1: FAFSA Filing and Support Only This event model offers onsite FAFSA filing and support staff for participants questions. The focus and goal of this event is to have participants submit a completed FAFSA before leaving or ask questions regarding a FAFSA that they filed before attending the event. The audience that would benefit from this model of event is graduating seniors in high school and/or currently enrolled or prospective college students. An effective way to promote this event is in high schools with graduating seniors and at local colleges. The event works well in smaller communities with limited space and resources. This is the most popular model of College Goal Sunday nationwide. Because this model focuses on FAFSA submission and one-on-one help, it is important to recruit at least one financial aid (FA) expert per FAFSA filing room and approximately one FA advisor for every 8 students. Event Model 2: FAFSA Filing plus Understanding Financial Aid Event Model 2 offers FAFSA filing and workshops and resources for families and participants about financial aid, the award process, and paying for college. The target audience is similar to that in Event Model 1 graduating seniors as well as current or aspiring college students. However, high school juniors and their families could also benefit from the workshops as they consider the upcoming year of college planning and applications. If this model is chosen, a recorded PowerPoint presentation will be provided for you to play continuously throughout the event that addresses understanding financial aid, the award process, and how to pay for college. Resource material will be provided to supplement the presentation.
18 Event Model 3: FAFSA Filing plus On-site Tax Preparation Event Model 3 is similar to Model 1 with the addition of an on-site United Way Real$ense Representative to assist students and families in filing their tax returns at no cost. CGS!Florida State coordinators are available to assist site coordinators in finding a local United Way Real$ense Representative; however, we cannot guarantee their availability for your event. Workshops and resources from Model 2 can be included in Model 3, upon request.
19 Questions to Assess Your Community Use the following questions as a guide to determine the model of event that works best for your community and target audience. How many students do you expect to attend your event? How many volunteers do you expect to help at your event? What are some possible site locations for your event? What types of resources are available at the event site? How big is the event venue? Which target audience best describes your community? How and where will you focus outreach efforts to let this audience know about your event? Which resources will you offer at the event: workshops or seminars? Will you provide one-on-one help with the FAFSA and/or tax filing support?
