Grant Declination: Bank of America Foundation

BETF and BDPA St. Louis chapter submitted a $5,000 grant proposal to Bank of America Foundation last year. Since that time we have been in communication with the our contact at the bank on a regular basis. However, it appears that we will not get funding to support our grant proposal. We don't have a written declination letter from the Bank of America Foundation ... but, sometimes if you're being ignored that is as good a sign!

Bank of America Foundation is one of the largest in the nation. Please let us know if you have any advice on how we can be more successful with them in the future.

Do you have the phone number of the person the grant proposal was sent to? Is there a back log for requests?

Julia - Yes, we have the number of the Bank of America folks that we were working with in the St. Louis market. I don't know about their level of request inventory...
