Grant Declination: Southwest Airlines (Dallas)

Southwest Airlines declined our request for donation of airline tickets in support of BDPA Dallas chapter. It appears that our biggest problem was that we didn't submit the request with enough lead time.

Dear Mr. Hicks:

Thank you for offering Southwest Airlines the opportunity to support your organization's upcoming fundraising event. While we appreciate your request, we must regretfully decline. Unfortunately, we were not able to properly consider your request, because it did not fall within the required timeframe needed to properly consider it. To review our guidelines you can find them on our web site

Here's wishing you all of the best success with the event!

Southwest Airlines Charitable Giving

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) encourages National BDPA or local chapters to consider approaching Southwest Airlines for donation of airline tickets in the future ... we just need to make the request in compliance with their guidelines.
