Grant Declination: Ohio National Foundation (Cincinnati)

We recently learned that Ohio National Foundation did not approve our grant request. BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) partnered with BDPA Cincinnati on a $5,000 grant request to Ohio National Foundation in an effort to partially fund STEM-based youth education programs.

The declination letter read as follows:

Dear Mr. Hicks,

Our Contributions Committee met recently to consider outstanding requests and I am sorry to inform you that The Ohio National Foundation will be unable to provide a contribution to BDPA Education and Technology Foundation.

We are sorry we cannot aid you in your endeavor; but, as you may understand, we receive many such requests and are unable to honor them all.

Best wishes in your fund raising endeavors.

Anthony G. Esposito

BETF will continue to seek funding to support operations in our Cincinnati chapter. However, you can help us right away if you so desire. Please consider making a secure online donation to support our efforts!
