Grant Declination: RGK Foundation (BDPA Chicago)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Chicago chapter learned today that our letter of inquiry to the RGK Foundation was reviewed. Unfortunately, our request for support has been turned down by the folks at RGK Foundation.

The declination note read as follows

Thank you for submitting an electronic Letter of Inquiry to RGK Foundation. As a result of the number of inquiries we receive, RGK Foundation is unable to respond affirmatively to all requests. Although the proposed program is worthy, we regret that we are unable to consider a formal proposal at this time.
We appreciate the time and effort put forth in submitting the Letter of Inquiry information, and we wish you success in reaching your funding goals.
Please do not reply to this email address as it is auto generated and does not receive replies.
Very truly yours,
Gregory A. Kozmetsky, President

BDPA Chicago is one of the most prolific chapters in the nation. BETF will continue to work with them to uncover funding from other nonprofit foundations. However, you can help ... let us know if you are aware of any nonprofit foundations or corporate foundations or folks with a high net worth who might be open to providing funding to support BDPA programs and services in Chicago or elsewhere. OK?
