Grant Proposal: Darden Restaurants Foundation (Atlanta)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Atlanta chapter partnered on an online grant proposal to the Darden Restaurants Foundation. We looked to the Darden Restaurants Foundation because of the recent news that the corporation is headed by Clarence Otis, Jr, one of the few African American CEOs heading up a Fortune 500 company.

Our grant proposal was submitted as part of Darden's Community Alliance Program (CAP). Darden participates in, and contributes to, over 500 events and programs in these CAP cities. These relationships ensure their ability to be a neighbor of choice and to positively impact the communities in which they operate. CAP cities include: Atlanta, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Oklahoma City and Orlando.

We will let you know how Darden responds to our grant proposal in support of the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program in greater Atlanta. In the meantime, you can encourage us with your own donation to BETF. What say u?
