Grant Recipient: BDPA Los Angeles ($8,751)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) approved an $8,751.24 grant disbursement to BDPA Los Angeles chapter. BDPA Los Angeles chapter president John Malonson patiently worked with BETF over the past few months on a variety of fundraising efforts with Facebook and Raytheon Charitable Foundation. As a result of the chapter's patience and persistence ... the funding is available to support their efforts to bring a team of high school students to the 2010 National BDPA High School Computer Competition championships being held next month in Philadelphia.

BETF encourages all 45 BDPA chapters to follow our 7-step funding process. The process has worked for a number of BDPA chapters ... it can work for your chapter as well!
