Grant Proposal: Gannett Foundation

BDPA Middle Tennessee and the BDPA Foundation submitted a grant proposal to The Tennessean (as a subsidiary of the Gannett Foundation) asking for $3,000 in support of the Student IT Education & Scholarship program. The chapter is training ten (10) students as part of their 2009 efforts.

The Gannett Foundation is a corporate foundation that gives grants to organizations in the communities in which Gannett owns a daily newspaper or television station. Gannett Foundation values projects that take a creative approach to fundamental issues such as education and neighborhood improvement, economic development, youth development, community problem-solving, assistance to disadvantaged people, environmental conservation and cultural enrichment.

Wish us luck on this grant proposal!
