Grant Declination: Honda of America Foundation

BETF recently learned that Honda of America Foundation turned down our grant proposal on behalf of BDPA Columbus chapter.

In 1979, as Honda of America began operations in Ohio, a charitable foundation was established at Honda of America to provide financial support to help address the unique needs of our local communities. The auto industry has been reeling over the past year ... so it is not surprising that funding from a foundation based in the auto industry didn't support our youth education program in 2009. Our hope is that we will be successful with Honda of America Foundation when we try again next year.

Honda said 'no' ... perhaps you can say 'yes'?
