Grant Proposal: Gannett Foundation

BDPA New York chapter and the BDPA Foundation submitted a joint grant proposal to the Gannett Foundation. We requested $13,570 funding in support of the 2009 SITES program in New York City.

The Gannett Foundation is a corporate foundation sponsored by Gannett Co., Inc. They give grants to organizations in the communities in which Gannett owns a daily newspaper or television station.

The Gannett Foundation’s mission is to invest in the future of the communities in which Gannett does business, and in the future of our industry. They value projects that take a creative approach to fundamental issues such as education and neighborhood improvement, economic development, youth development, community problem-solving, assistance to disadvantaged people, environmental conservation and cultural enrichment.
