Grant Declination: American Express Foundation

BDPA Los Angeles and BDPA Education and Technology Foundation submitted a letter of inquiry to the American Express Foundation in mid-April. We learned today that our proposal was declined.   Their declination letter read as follows:

Dear Grant Applicant,

Thank you for your recent correspondence requesting financial support from American Express. We regret that the large volume of proposals that we receive each week prevents us from responding to your request personally.

Although we recognize the value of the activities for which you are seeking funds, our limited resources make it impossible to assist all the worthwhile requests for funding that we receive.

We do, however, extend our best wishes for the success of your program.

Timothy J. McClimon, President
American Express Foundation

We will continue to reach out for funding necessary to deliver our programs in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) arena.
