Grant Declination: The Jenesis Group

BETF and BDPA Middle Tennessee chapter submitted a letter of inquiry to The Jenesis Group earlier this year. The Jenesis Group told us that there was no need to submit a full grant proposal when they wrote:


Dear Mr. Hicks,

I am writing in response to your request for funding submitted to our office for review. After careful assessment, we regret to advise that due to limited funds and other funding commitments we are unable to provide the support you seek.

I wish you every success and hope you will be able to secure the funding you need.

We will continue to support BDPA Middle Tennessee and any other chapter that follows our 7-step grant funding process. In the meantime, I hope that you will consider helping our funding efforts with your secure online donation!

I feel your pain. I have received rejections like this over and over for the past 16 years. One of the reasons leaders in non profits burn out is this constant search for funding.

TMC - It is a challenge. We decided to share the ups and downs via this blog so that our stakeholders would be aware of the effort it takes to fund these scholarships and other educational programs. It definitely is 'more than a notion'!
