Grant Proposal: Christ Church Cathedral (BDPA Cincinnati)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Cincinnati chapter partnered on a grant proposal to Christ Church Cathedral’s community grant initiative. Our proposal will be reviewed by the church’s Outreach Committee. The mission of the Outreach Committee is to promote the Cathedral's mission "by giving of ourselves and our resources to care for the world beyond Christ Church." To that end, the committee solicits proposals from worthy organizations, carefully reviews and evaluates those proposals and organizations, and recommends to the Vestry grants from the Mission Fund.

We should have an answer in advance of the BDPA Midwest Regional HSCC and IT Showcase hosted by BDPA Cincinnati chapter on June 11, 2011.

Wish us luck!

All - We were informed that our community grant application has made it through the first vetting. We can expect a Grants committee member to contact us for additional follow-up as they gather data for the next round of vetting. We are seeking $21,000 in this community grant proposal.

Also, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that one of the Christ Church Cathedral parishioners sought a $500 donation on our behalf from the church. This is separate and distinct from the community grant proposal. Last evening the Grants Committee approved Marcia's Parishioner grant request for $500. That check is being mailed to us immediately.

Wish us luck on the community grant proposal ... and if you want to do more than just wish us luck ... then we invite you to support BDPA Cincinnati Scholarship Fund!
