Grant Award: Raytheon Charitable Foundation ($5,000)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) is proud to announce that we've won a $5,000 grant award from Raytheon Charitable Foundation in support of the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program implemented by BDPA Los Angeles chapter.

BETF worked closely with BDPA Los Angeles chapter president John Malonson on this grant proposal. John works for Raytheon and the company appreciated his involvement as a leader with BDPA. The chapter will use the funding to support the training of over 20 high school students every Saturday on programming and web development.

BDPA Los Angeles chapter continues to work with BETF on grant proposal to other funding sources ... including our efforts to raise college scholarship money for LA chapter high school students.

Please share some BDPA-Love for the folks at Raytheon for their commitment to community service and to ensuring that our young people have the science, math and technology tools to be successful in the coming century!
