Grant Declination: Carnegie Corporation of New York

BETF sent a letter of inquiry to Carnegie Corporation of New York earlier this year. Our funding request was in support of the national VP-Member Services who needs funding to fully implement the BDPA IT Corps project.

Our funding request has been declinded. Carnegie Corporation of New York wrote:

Dear Mr. Hicks,

Thank you very much for your letter, and for acquainting the foundation with your IT Corps project. We carefully reviewed the materials you sent. Unfortunately, the activities suggested for funding do not fit within our present program priorities.

The board of trustees selects only a few areas at any given time in which to concentrate grants; even in those areas, we receive many more good proposals than we can fund.

For current information about the Corporation and its programs, I invite you to visit our website. I also recommend the Foundation Center, which has materials that may be useful as you search for funding.

I regret that I must send such a discouraging reply and wish you success in securing support from other sources.

Rikard Treiber
Associate Corporate Secretary
and Director of Grants Management

We will continue to seek out funding for our global BDPA IT Corps project.
