Letter of Inquiry * Carnegie Corporation of New York (BDPA IT Corps)

BETF submitted a letter of inquiry to Carnegie Corporation of New York on behalf of the BDPA IT Corps project. We are grateful to National BDPA vice president Kimberly Davis and her business area for support in this funding effort.

Carnegie Corporation of New York was created by Andrew Carnegie in 1911 to promote "the advancement and diffusion of knowledge and understanding." Under Carnegie's will, grants must benefit the people of the United States, although the Foundation has a growing emphasis on Commonwealth Africa. The BDPA IT Corps project opens with an exchange of students and programs in Africa. We hope that we have a good fit with Carnegie's goals.

Carnegie accepts requests for funding at all times of the year and welcomes inquiries from potential grantees whose work fits their strategic guidelines. There are no application deadlines.

If Carnegie is pleased with our letter of inquiry, we will be contacted and asked to submit a full-fledged proposal. We will keep you informed of our progress. In the meantime, we hope that you will consider stepping up to make an a secure online donation. God likes the child who has her own!
