Grant Award: Prudential Insurance

The BDPA Education & Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA New Jersey chapter are proud to announce the donation of 100 laptops and laptop bags from Prudential Insurance. These laptops are destined for families participating in the chapter's Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program in New Jersey.

The SITES program evolved in the past few years to include an annual Family Information Technology Day. This is a unique program within BDPA that we hope to see used as a 'best practice' by the other 49 chapters.

At the same time, we hope that other corporations will consider donating unused or recycled laptops for use by our students around the nation. Corporations that wish to follow the lead set by Prudential Insurance can contact BETF by email ( or phone (513.284-4968).

I encourage BETF-Blog readers to use the COMMENTS section below to share their thoughts on this large in-kind donation by Prudential Insurance. What say u?

Dear BDPA Foundation: Congratulations!

It is an honor to be blessed with 100 laptops and bags to support the BDPA SITES technology program. As Sponsorship Chair for a 501c3 nonprofit organization, numerous funding sources, e.g. state, local, and federal, are available to support the missions of our non-profit organizations. All organizations merely need a dedicated team to apply to these grant opportunities.
