Grant Recipient: BDPA Richmond ($4,000)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) recently approved a $4,000 grant request from BDPA Richmond chapter. The funds will be used to cover chapter expenses involved in training the high school computer competition (HSCC) students that will travel to Chicago later this year to compete in the 2011 National BDPA HSCC Championship.

BDPA Richmond chapter works aggressively with BETF to raise funds. They encourage their chapter members and leaders to make payroll deductions via United Way of Greater Richmond and other employee giving campaigns. As a result, there is a regular flow in payroll deductions that flow into BETF treasury to support BDPA programs and services in the greater Richmond area.

Also, the chapter took advantage of BETF suggestion to create a HSCC Scholarship Fund on Crowdrise to increase online donations. BETF looks forward to seeing a strong team from Richmond in the national HSCC championship later this year!
