Bechtel Group Foundation

Bechtel Group Foundation was created in 1954 to respond to the needs of the communities around the world in which Bechtel has offices or major projects. In 2009, the Foundation made grants totaling $2.02 million to 216 non-profit organizations in 8 countries. All grants are initiated internally by Bechtel’s office and project managers.

One of the Foundation's programs is "Building Positive Community Relationships Grants". These grants support educational, civic and cultural, and social service programs in the communities that host major Bechtel offices and projects. These grants are typically under $5,000.

Major Bechtel offices are co-located with BDPA chapters in or near: Bay Area, Houston, Northern Virginia and Washington DC. Do any of these four chapters want to partner with the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) on a 'letter of inquiry' to Bechtel Group Foundation?
