Grant Proposal: Raytheon Charitable Foundation (BDPA Los Angeles)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) joined with BDPA Los Angeles chapter to submit a $5,000 online grant proposal to the Raytheon Charitable Foundation.

BDPA LA Computer Camp
BDPA Los Angeles chapter continues to raise its profile both within the southern California community and amongst the 45 local BDPA chapters around the nation. The chapter is currently providing STEM-based training to over 20 middle- and high school students every Saturday. The chapter seeks funding support from Raytheon Charitable Foundation in order to maintain this momentum.

We should have an answer on our funding request within the next 60 days. Wish us luck. Of course, a more tangible method of supporting the efforts of BDPA Los Angeles chapter would be appreciated as well!

All - We've received informal confirmation that our joint grant proposal (with BDPA Los Angeles chapter) has been approved by Raytheon! Formal receipt of the check should take place in the next few days.

Congrats to BDPA Los Angeles chapter president John Malonson and his team!
