Matching Gift * BlueCross BlueShield of Louisiana

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) received a donation to support the BDPA Baton Rouge chapter from BlueCross BlueShield of Louisiana. The letter that came with the check read as follows:

Dear Mr. Hicks,

We have completed processing of the matching gift request recently received from Glenda Chappell and [the BDPA Foundation]. I am pleased to inform you that [BETF] has met all of the qualifaction requirements for the matching gift program, and our check is enclosed.

As you know, BlueCross BlueShield of Louisiana will match personal contributions from eligible participants to qualified non-profit organizations as outlined in our matching gifts program guidelines. More information regarding our matching program can be found on our website,, in the Community section at the top of the screen.

We appreciate the efforts you are making in our state and wish you success.

My hope is that all BDPA members that are working in Corporate America will take a close look at their company intranet to see if they would be eligible for volunteer grant or matching gift. In the meantime, we appreciate the work of Glenda Chappell, BCBSLA and BDPA Baton Rouge chapter!
