My hope is that all BDPA members that are working in Corporate America will take a close look at their company intranet to see if they would be eligible for volunteer grant or matching gift. In the meantime, we appreciate the work of Glenda Chappell, BCBSLA and BDPA Baton Rouge chapter!

BETF is pleased to report that Glenda Chappell (Baton Rouge) has submitted a second donation ... and we are again processing the paperword for a 100% matching gift from BCBSLA.  

Asante sana to Glenda!   The funds from her donation and the 100% matching gift will be used to help Baton Rouge chapter bring some young people to Philadelphia next month!


BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) received our second gift from the matching gift program donation to support the BDPA Baton Rouge chapter from BlueCross BlueShield of Louisiana (BCBSLA).

Glenda Chappell is the BCBSLA associate who made the donation that was matched by her employer.  Glenda truly leveraged her donation with this 100% matching gift program.

Does your employer have a matching gift program?   Have you leveraged it to support your BDPA chapter?
BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) worked with BlueCross BlueShield of Louisiana (BCBSLA) to process a matching gift check. The company's community relations department wrote:

BETF thanks BDPA Baton Rouge co-founder Glenda Chappell for her generosity. It is great that Glenda took the time to leverage her donation with her employer's 100% matching gift program. Our hope is that our readers will research existence of matching gifts programs to see if the same potential exists at your workplace.

Another option is that our readers reach out to support our efforts to raise funds for college scholarships to support the young people being trained by BDPA Baton Rouge.
