Anheuser-Busch Foundation

Anheuser-Busch Companies has two philanthropic arms: The Anheuser-Busch Foundation and the Anheuser-Busch Corporate Giving Program. Both funds are operated by the same people, out of the same office in St. Louis, MO. Both concentrate giving in the 16 communities where the company has plenty of employees and a high-visibility community presence. The geographic areas of interest are: Fairfield, Los Angeles, and San Diego, CA, Fort Collins, CO, Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa, FL, Cartersville, GA, St. Louis, MO, Merrimack, NH, Newark, NJ, Baldwinsville, NY, Columbus, OH, Houston and San Antonio, TX, and Williamsburg, VA.

Both the Foundation and the Corporate Giving Program give to both general charitable purposes and to support the company's business goals. However, the Corporate Giving Program's grantees are more closely and clearly alligned with the company's business operations.

The Anheuser-Busch Foundation, established by the Anheuser-Busch Companies Inc., supports a variety of organizations. The foundation was established in Nov. 1975 and is located in St Louis, Missouri. The foundation's primary purpose is to support education, the environment, arts and culture, health and human services, minorities, and youth. The Foundation gives to United Way agencies and higher education; support for youth, community development, the arts, and health agencies.

If we do not hear from a local chapter interested in partnering with us on a grant proposal to Anheuser-Busch in support of 2010 SITES program ... then we will submit a proposal to them in support of the Bemley Scholarship Fund. It appears that our BDPA chapters in Los Angeles, Orlando, Tampa, St. Louis, New Jersey, Columbus and Houston are on the clock.

We completed $5,000 grant proposal to Anheuser-Busch Foundation.   It has been mailed (along with attachments) via US Postal Service.   We should have an answer to our funding request within 8 weeks.

We will keep you informed of our progress.

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation ( BETF ) received a declination letter from Anheuser-Busch Foundation . They were not able to fund our grant proposal in support of the youth education programs hosted by BDPA Columbus chapter.

The declination letter read as follows:

This letter is in response to your recent proposal.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide the funding you requested. While we recognize the importance of your organization's work, we regret that the number of worthy requests we receive far exceeds our budget for charitable contributions.

Please accept our best wishes for success in your efforts.

We will continue to seek out support for BDPA Columbus chapter. You can help. Why not make a pledge for our cause today?
