Grant Declination: Goodrich Foundation

We learned this week that our grant proposal to Goodrich Foundation on behalf of BDPA Los Angeles chapter was turned down.

The declination letter read as follows:

Dear Mr. Hicks :

Thank you for your interest in the Goodrich Foundation. We received your Goodrich Foundation Application request for Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) Program.

Your proposal does not fit or meet our giving objectives at this time and we must decline your request for funding. The Foundation does support qualified 501 c 3 organizations like yours in a variety of ways, and these could be helpful to you as you continue to seek new revenue. Those are:
  • We support organizations with matching funds under the company's Partners in Giving Program. This is an employee benefit program, and employees personal contributions are matched 1:1.

  • Volunteers who also happen to be Goodrich employees can double this donation through the Partners in Giving program.

  • Additional possible funding could be available in the sponsorship budget in one of our local facilties.

A full description of our giving focus and giving guidelines can be found on our website. You can also find our business unit locations on the website for your review.

We wish you success in your future activities and search for funding. We appreciate the good works you provide in your community.

Kelly Chopus, Secretary
Goodrich Foundation

BETF will continue to seek funding for BDPA Los Angeles chapter and the other 44 local chapters around the country. You can help. Do you know anyone that works at Goodrich who is also a supporter of BDPA?
