Grant Award: BP Fabric of America Fund ($300)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) is proud recipient of a $300 grant award from the BP Fabric of America Fund. The check came with the following message:

Dear Wayne Hicks,

Karen Motley, a BP employee, has recommended your organization as one that makes a positive contribution. To express our gratitude, BP would like to present a gift from the BP Fabric of America Fund. Please accept the enclosed check for $300 with our sincere thanks for the important work that you do.

BP is investing in both traditional energy and renewable energy as it works to develop US energy sources that contribute to the country's energy security and diversity. But, that is only part of BP's role. We also support the groups that make up the fabric of America: organizations across the US that work to improve people's lives. The Fabric of America Fund considers contributions to organizations recommended by BP employees. We are pleased you have been chosen for a grant through this program.

Again, thank you for working to make a difference in people's lives. We hope our support will help you to continue the work that has made an impression on those around you.

The Fabric of America Fund

We are very grateful to Karen for taking the time to submit BETF's name into consideration for this grant award. Karen is a member of our BDPA Cleveland chapter. We will ensure that these funds are restricted for use by BDPA programs in the Cleveland area.

In the meantime, I hope that other BP employees will see this post and nominate us for additional grant funding from the BP Fabric of America Fund!
