Grant Proposal: Southern California Gas Company (BDPA Los Angeles)
The Sempra Energy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation based in San Diego, California, USA. The foundation was founded by Sempra Energy, a Fortune 250 energy services company that serves the largest customer base of any energy utility in the United States. With 13,800 employees worldwide, the Sempra Energy companies develop energy infrastructure, operate utilities, and provide related products and services to more than 29 million consumers worldwide.
One of its subsidiaries is the Southern California Gas Company. We were invited to apply for a grant proposal with Southern California Gas Company in the amount of $2500. They focus their charitable giving in a number of areas, including K-12 Programs. This program seeks to improve grades and skills in Science/Technology/Engineering/Math and increased graduation rates in underserved communities.
BDPA Education and Technology Foundation worked closely with BDPA Los Angeles chapter president David Malonson to create a grant proposal that was submitted earlier this week. Wish us luck!
