Grant Award: Helen Bader Foundation ($5,000)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) partnered with BDPA Milwaukee chapter to submit a letter of inquiry to the Helen Bader Foundation seeking funding to support the chapter's Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program.  We learned that our grant award was approved in the amount of $5,000!

The letter of approval read as follows:

Dear Mr. Hicks,
On behalf of the Helen Bader Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors and staff, I am pleased to notify you that BDPA Education and Technology Foundation's grant request for the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship Program project has been approved in the amount of $5,000.00.
Please note that the Foundation uses an all-electronic grant review process, so all related correspondence is sent via email. Within the next few weeks, you can expect to receive additional emails with information regarding electronic submission of required legal documents and an electronic bank deposit for your grant payment. 

If you should have any questions about processing, publicity, or any other aspect of your grant, please feel free to contact Robert Tobon, Communications Director: or (414) 755-4364.
Congratulations on your newly awarded grant. We look forward to working with you on this project.
Daniel J. Bader

Our newly-crowned BDPA Comeback Chapter of the Year is BDPA Milwaukee chapter ... led by chapter president Carmen Giles (MillerCoors). She is moving her chapter forward in a positive direction! I hope that all 46 chapters are working closely with BETF to get the funding that they need to operate their 2015 SITES programs!
