Grant Declination: New York Community Trust

BDPA New York Chapter and BDPA Education & Technology Foundation submitted a joint grant proposal to the New York Community Trust in January. We have been informed that our proposal was declined.

Dear Mr. Hicks,

We read with interest your proposal of January 22, 2009 requesting support to train 25 youth in computer technology.

I am sorry to tell you that we won't be able to help. Competition for our funds is vigorous and we just don't have enough money to do all the things that need doing.

We appreciate the time you took to write us and hope you will find the money you need from other sources.

Joyce M. Bove
Senior Vice President
Grants and Special Projects

We will continue to see funding in support of the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program in New York City. Please let us know if you have any ideas for us on funding sources!
