Grant Declination: Ford Foundation

BDPA Education & Technology Foundation partnered with National BDPA Member Service business area to request $15,000 funding from Ford Foundation for the BDPA IT Corps project. Unfortunately, our request was turned down:

Dear Mr. Hicks:

Thank you for your inquiry about the possibility of Ford Foundation assistance.

We have reviewed your request and regret that we are unable to give you an encouraging reply. Because of budgetary constraints we confine our work to a limited number of fields, and we do not have an active program to which we could apply your request.

If you have not already done so, you may wish to contact the Foundation Center, an information resource for grantseekers.

I regret that the Foundation cannot be of assistance and hope you will be successful in securing the funds needed to advance your plans.

Elaine Kranich

We will continue to seek funding for the BDPA IT Corps project. Let us know if you have any suggestions or ideas for funding!
