Letter of Inquiry: Wal-Mart Community Grant (Triangle)

BDPA Triangle talked with Wal-Mart store managers in Sanford NC and Durham NC about their SITES program. BETF agreed to partner with the chapter to submit $2,500 community grant request to each store. The cover letter and community grant application is being hand-delivered by the chapter leadership this week.

We obtained a $1,000 grant in support of BDPA New York chapter SITES program earlier this year. The funding was result of application submitted to the Wal-Mart Store in Long Island, NY.

Has your chapter approached the local store manager in your area about funding? Let us know if you want BETF support in your efforts to obtain a community grant from your local Wal-Mart store manager.

Personally, I think that all 51 chapters should be going after this one!
