Grant Recipient: BDPA New York ($2,500)

The BDPA Foundation approved $ 2,500 grant funding to BDPA New York chapter. The funds will be used to support chapter participation in the Northeast Regional HSCC (Newark NJ) and Mid-Atlantic Regional HSCC (Washington DC). Remaining funds will support participation for chapter HSCC students, chaperones and coordinator at the national competition in Atlanta, GA on August 8-9, 2008.

BETF provided full funding for this $2,500 request submitted by the chapter last month.

This funding request was supported by a recent MetLife volunteer grant. We need others to step-up and make tax-deductible donation to the BDPA Foundation so that we might continue to fund these programs in the future. It is important for us to have funds necessary to advance the careers of African Americans in the IT industry from the 'classroom to the boardroom'.

What are you waiting for? Please make a small donation right now!
