Grant Proposal: Corning Incorporated Foundation

BDPA Triangle chapter and BDPA Foundation agreed to submit a grant proposal to the Corning Incorporate Foundation seeking $16,422 funding to support the 2009 SITES program in Raleigh/Durham area.

Over the years, the Corning Incorporated Foundation has contributed more than $108 million through its programs of giving. Resources are directed almost exclusively toward initiatives which improve the quality of life in and near communities where Corning Incorporated is an active corporate citizen. Currently, the Foundation annually fulfills approximately 136 grants totaling some $3.0 million.

Support goes to institutions that are tax-exempt under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and which are public charities as defined in Section 509(a) of the Code.

Selected public K-12 school districts, community colleges and four-year institutions of higher learning are the consistent beneficiaries of Corning Foundation support.

Corning's areas of involvement have included community service programs for students, curriculum enrichment, student scholarships, facility improvement and instructional technology projects for the classroom.
