Grant Recipient: BDPA Cleveland ($8,500)

The BDPA Foundation approved $ 8,500 grant funding to BDPA Cleveland chapter. The funds were needed to cover expenses for chapter participation in the Midwest Regional HSCC (Cincinnati OH).
Remaining funds will support participation for chapter HSCC students, chaperones and coordinator at the national competition in Atlanta, GA on August 8-9, 2008.

David Moore, BDPA Cleveland VP-Finance wrote, "We did receive the check today. I would like to thank you for getting us these critical funds well ahead of your regular schedule. Your efforts are GREATLY appreciated by the BDPA-Cleveland chapter. I am looking forward to meeting you at the National Conference in a couple of weeks."

This funding request was supported by a recent Key Foundation grant. Right now we need others to step-up and make tax-deductible donations 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'. Please make a small donation right now!
