Procter & Gamble

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Cincinnati chapter submitted an online grant proposal to Procter & Gamble earlier this month.

The joint grant proposal seeks $5,000 funding to support the chapter's computer camp and the upcoming Midwest Regional High School Computer Competition and IT Showcase that is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 11, 2011.

We hope to have a response within the next 30 days.

We are sorry to report that our grant proposal to the Procter & Gamble Fund has been turned down. The grant proposal was a joint submission of BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Cincinnati chapter.

The declination response read as follows:
Dear Mr. Hicks:

Thank you for your interest in a grant from The P&G Fund. As you saw from our online guidelines and application, we are focusing our philanthropic resources primarily on Live, Learn and Thrive.

The P&G Fund's grant process is extremely competitive, and we cannot honor each organization's request. Unfortunately, we are not able to make a grant to your organization at this time.

This decision is not a reflection on your program; it is simply the reality that the quantity of high quality applications we receive far outweighs the available resources we have to distribute.

We wish you the best in your efforts to improve life for those in need!

This is a set-back to our funding efforts on behalf of the BDPA Cincinnati chapter, however, we will continue to move forward in an aggressive manner. You can help if you are so inclined. Please take a moment to visit the BDPA Cincinnati HSCC Scholarship Fund project. Even a donation as small as $10 would be a great morale boost for the chapter and its leadership.
BDPA Cincinnati chapter and the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) completed a joint grant proposal to the Procter & Gamble Fund seeking $25,692 in funding for the SITES program in southwest Ohio.   We have high hopes for this funding based on the high level of P&G employee involvement with BDPA Cincinnati chapter. The current chapter president (Clarence Larcarte), CAC chairperson ( Patrick Nelson ) and BETF Liaison (Ellery Lewis) are all employed by Procter & Gamble.

Wish us luck! Also, you can support BDPA Cincinnati chapter with an online donation to its annual High School Computer Competition scholarship fund.
BDPA has a powerful and time-tested Student Information Technology Education and Scholarship (SITES) program that is operational all over the country. It feels very good to have our SITES program endorsed by major organizations.

Our SITES program hosted by the BDPA Cincinnati chapter has been endorsed by the Procter & Gamble Fund. They backed up their endorsement with a $15,000 grant award to the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation in support of this program that impacts on under-served K-12 youth in Cincinnati.

The grant award was announced to us in the following message:
Dear Mr. Hicks,

I am pleased to announce to you that Procter & Gamble approved your grant in the amount of $15,000.00 to BDPA Education and Technology Foundation. This grant is awarded for the implementation of the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) Program.

This grant will come from The P&G Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation.

With this donation comes our best wishes for the success of your program and organization.

Sean Parker
The P&G Fund

Share some love with the folks who made this funding possible within the BDPA Cincinnati chapter ... including the BETF chapter liaison Ellery Lewis and the chapter president Clarence Larcarte .
