Grant Declination: Ben and Jerry's Foundation

We received an answer to the letter of inquiry sent to Ben & Jerry's Foundation on behalf of BDPA New York chapter. They declined our request for funding. The administrator wrote,

Dear Wayne,

Thank you for your letter of interest. After careful consideration, the review committee has decided that your program does not meet our guidelines as closely as some other applicants.

We receive a great many letters of interest and the selection process is difficult. We regret that we cannot consider a full application from your organization. We wish you luck with your project.

Deborah Kessler

We will continue to seek funding for BDPA New York and the other 49 chapters. You can help. Please make a small donation to help stimulate the interest of young people in science and technology. We are the change that we seek. We can no longer wait for government bailout or stimuli. We need to help ourselves. What say u?
