Grant Proposal: Capital One Foundation (Baton Rouge)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Baton Rouge chapter partnered on a $5,000 grant proposal to the Capital One Foundation. We are working our request through the community affairs officer located in Louisiana.

Capital One Bank is at the end of their 2010 granting year, however they invite organizations with programmatic requests that specifically reach a 51% or greater low-to-moderate income population and fit the bank's strategic philanthropic goals.

Our understanding is that they give priority to programs in the following areas:
  1. Supporting Community Development, focusing on career exploration and job training programs
  2. Increasing Financial Literacy, focusing on money management knowledge and product-centric education
  3. Improving Access to Quality Education, focusing on teacher effectiveness, parental engagement and student support services
Our hope is that Capital One Bank will find favor with the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program powered by our volunteers in the BDPA Baton Rouge chapter. Wish us luck!
