Grant Proposal: IBM Community Grant Program

Paulette Johnson-Davis is 2-time president of BDPA Greater Columbia chapter. She is also an IBM retiree. IBM retirees that volunteer with BDPA for an average of eight hours per month for five consecutive months are eligible for either a cash or equipment grant as part of the IBM Community Grant program.

Paulette submitted a request through the IBM Community Grant program asking for $1,000 to support the 2009 Student IT Education & Scholarship program in the Columbia SC area.

I hope that other IBM employees and retirees will look into the IBM Community Grant program. We would love to leverage the full strength of IBM innovation and technology. The volunteer efforts of IBM employees, combined with IBM Community Grants, has the potential to make a lasting impact on organizations, like BDPA, that provide some of society's most important services.

Asante sana for Paulette Johnson-Davis for her continued leadership and support of BDPA!
