Grant Award: Wal-Mart Community Grants ($250)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) worked with the leadership of our BDPA Triangle chapter to submit a funding request to Wal-Mart Store #5292 in Raleigh NC. The store approved a $250 quarterly donation to support youth education programs for students in the Research Triangle area.

For the past two years, Wal-Mart has been recognized as the largest corporate cash contributor by Chronicle of Philanthropy. In addition to their individual donations, Wal-Mart associates volunteered more than 1 million hours to causes of their own choosing. In support of their dedication, the Foundation matched associates’ volunteer hours with $6 million in grants.
