Grant Declination: Delta Air Lines (BDPA Middle Tennessee)

We learned earlier this month that BDPA Middle Tennessee would not be receiving in-kind donation of airline tickets from Delta Air Lines in support getting their high school computer competition (HSCC) team to Chicago for the 2011 national HSCC championships.

Dear Wayne Hicks:

Thank you for submitting a sponsorship proposal on December 26, 2010, giving Delta the opportunity to become a corporate partner of Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) Program [Nashville TN].

After careful consideration of the information provided, we are sorry to inform you that we will be declining your offer to partner with you at this time. The opportunity does not meet our current marketing or philanthropic objectives given our limited cash and barter resources.

We appreciate the opportunity, and would like to thank you for your interest in partnering with Delta. We wish you great success.

The Delta Marketing Team

BETF will continue to work to find funds necessary to grow the youth education programs being offered by BDPA Middle Tennessee.

Feel free to reply to this post if you have ideas!
