Grant Proposal: Goodrich Foundation (Los Angeles)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) partnered with BDPA Los Angeles chapter on a grant proposal to the Goodrich Foundation. We requested $4,000 in funding to support the Student Information Technology & Scholarship (SITES) program in southern California. We hope to have a response within 90 days.

The Goodrich Foundation was formed in 1988. The Foundation's principal was established through a contribution by Goodrich Corporation. The Foundation considers proposals that help junior high and high school students and teachers understand the relevance of math and science to society. The Foundation is supportive of efforts to link math and science taught in classrooms to application of these disciplines in the workplace.

The Foundation provides support to charitable organizations serving the needs of the public in Goodrich Corporation's United States headquarters and plant communities, to selected educational institutions and selected national groups. BDPA chapters are co-located with Goodrich sites in Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Dayton, Gr. Columbia, Gr. Tampa Bay, Hartford, Houston, Los Angeles, New Jersey, No. Virginia, So. Florida and Twin Cities.

The Goodrich Foundation staff reviews grant requests quarterly. Deadlines for proposals are March 1 and August 1. Decisions are made by the members of the Goodrich Foundation Board of Trustees, who meet several times per year. Proposals funded in one year are not always assured of future funding.

Because the Foundation receives far more proposals than it can possibly support, many requests are declined and every effort is made to provide notification of the Foundation's decision within 90 days.

Please let us know if you are aware of any other corporate foundations that we should reach out to for funding support.
