Duke Energy Foundation

Duke Energy Foundation reviews grant requests at a regional level. These grant requests are considered in the context of the needs of the community and in alignment with the foundation's areas of focus. At the core of The Duke Energy Foundation is its commitment to the community. The focus area that provides the most promise for funding BDPA programs is:
  • Economic Development
    1. Pre K-12 education focused on math, science and technology
    2. Higher education, government or other non-profit initiatives designed to support innovative solutions for business/industry/workforce challenges.
Is your chapter operating in a Duke Energy community? Does your chapter have any members that are Duke Energy employees? Answer 'yes' to either or both of these questions and we should follow-up with a joint grant proposal. BETF operates on a first-come; first-served basis. Let us know if your chapter is interested in pursuing this potential funding source.

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation ( BETF ) and BDPA Charlotte chapter submitted a $15,050 grant proposal to the Duke Energy Foundation . Duke Energy Foundation seeks to support programs focused on science, technology and mathematics -- and that is a remarkable fit for our Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program.

The Duke Energy Foundation seeks to improve the quality of life in communities they serve by sharing their time through volunteer efforts, their expertise through leadership and their financial support through grants to charitable organizations.

Grant requests are reviewed at a regional level and considered in the context of the needs of the community and in alignment with their areas of focus.

We anticipate having an answer on our grant request within the next 60 days. Wish us luck!
We learned today that the grant proposal to Duke Energy Foundation was turned down.   BETF-Blog readers may recall that BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Charlotte chapter partnered on a $15,050 grant proposal seeking funds for the chapter's Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program.

The declination letter read as follows:


Dear Mr. Hicks:

Thank you for the invitation to support your organization. Your online grant application was forwarded to me as the Foundation Manager for further review.

Each request for support is thoroughly analyzed and evaluated in relation to our philanthropic areas of focus and available resources. We regret that we cannot support this event due to previous commitments and structured guidelines.

For more details on our philanthropic areas of focus, please visit the Duke Energy website. Thank you again for the invitation. We wish you much success with your endeavors.

Sincerely,
Cheryl L. Teasdell

We will continue to look for funds to support BDPA Charlotte chapter. Let us know if you have any fundraising ideas that we should consider!
