Grant Proposal: Sony USA Foundation

BDPA Foundation collaborated with BDPA Richmond chapter on a grant proposal to Sony USA Foundation. The proposal requests $2,500 in support of their youth education programs. This funding source identified by a BDPA member who works for Sony Electronics.

Sony's company-wide philanthropic efforts reflect the diverse interests of our core businesses and focus on several distinct areas: arts education, arts and culture, health and human services, civic and community outreach, education, and volunteerism. Each operating company has its own philanthropic priorities and unique resources. While positive consideration is given to efforts that promote literacy and basic educational competency, the company also seeks to apply its financial, technological, and human resources to the encouragement of the creative, artistic, technical, and scientific skills required of tomorrow's workforce.

We should hear about the results of this funding request before the end of the month.
