Grant Recipient: BDPA Dayton ($2,550)

The BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) is pleased to announce a $2,550 donation to BDPA Dayton. The chapter leadership followed the 7-step funding process laid out on BETF website. BETF recognizes that to close the gap of computer and technology literacy, minority youth must participate and compete in today’s digital economy.

The $2,550 grant will be used by BDPA Dayton chapter to support their Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program. This chapter has been a strong participant in the national high school computer competition for many years. Here are photos from the 2006 and 2008 education banquets.

BETF directors expressed interest in working with Dayton chapter on funding for their 2010 SITES program. We look for them to explore increased funding opportunities through United Way, Combined Federal Campaign or joint grant proposals.

Join us in congratulating BDPA Dayton chapter leadership on their success in this funding effort!
