Grant Declination: AutoZone

BETF partnered with BDPA New York chapter on a letter of inquiry to AutoZone. We wanted permission to submit a full grant proposal to fund $2,000 towards the 2009 SITES program in New York.

Autozone declined our request. They wrote,

Thank you for your request of AutoZone. We appreciate the opportunity to learn more about your organization and the outlined proposed program.

After much deliberation and careful consideration, it was determined that AutoZone is unable to honor your request at this time. Factors that may have influenced our decision include: 'No budget funds available at this time.'

BETF will continue to seek funding support for BDPA New York chapter in the coming weeks and months. Please use the COMMENTS option below to make your own tax-deductible pledge in support of BDPA.
