Grant Proposal: Whirlpool Foundation (National BDPA)

National BDPA president-elect Monique Berry pointed us to the Whirlpool Foundation. At her request we submitted a $25,350 grant proposal to Whirlpool Foundation seeking support for the BDPA IT Showcase and the national Student Information Technology & Scholarship (SITES) program.

IT Showcase Student
The Whirlpool Foundation contributes to the global social concerns found in its home communities through grants, volunteerism and leadership. The contribution of these resources will enable Whirlpool to express and demonstrate its spirit of social responsibility by investing back into the very communities that drive its success.

Whirlpool Foundation makes grants to IRS-certified nonprofit organizations in communities where Whirlpool Corporation operates. Typically, the Foundation makes only one grant to a single program in each year. Company operations are in Arkansas, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Ohio, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

The Whirlpool Foundation point of contact is:

Candy Garman, Coordinator

Benton Harbor, MI 49022
Phone: (269) 923-5580

We are hopeful that Whirlpool Foundation will smile favorably on our funding request!
