Grant Declination: Go Daddy Cares (BDPA Cleveland)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Cleveland chapter recently learned that our $7,000 grant proposal to Go Daddy Cares has been declined.

Go Daddy officials wrote:

Dear Mr. Hicks,

Thank you for contacting about a possible donation of funds to support SITES Program. Unfortunately, we will not be availing ourselves of your sponsorship opportunity. Please understand that our decision is by no means a negative reflection upon you or your organization. Rather, it is a matter of resources. We simply cannot grant all of the deserving applications that we receive. Although we are unable to assist with this particular program, we welcome the opportunity to review further proposals.

We appreciate the commitment involved in undertaking such an endeavor, as well as the time and effort expended in soliciting corporate underwriting and we comment your spirit. We thank you for extending us the opportunity to participate and wish you the very best.

Francisca Sanchez

BETF will continue to work with BDPA Cleveland chapter president David Ford and the chapter's BETF liaison Sylvia Calhoun on future fundraising efforts. If you are so inclined ... we encourage you to support the BDPA Cleveland HSCC Scholarship Fund.
