Matching Gift: BlueCross BlueShield of Louisiana

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) worked with BlueCross BlueShield of Louisiana (BCBSLA) to process a matching gift check. The company's community relations department wrote:

Glenda is at far right

Dear Mr. Hicks,

We have completed processing of the matching gift request recently received from Glenda Chappell and Black Data Processing Associates (BDPA). I am pleased to inform you that BDPA has met all of the qualification requirements for the matching gift program, and our check is enclosed.

As you know, BCBSLA will match personal contributions from eligible participants to qualified non-profit organizations as outlined in our matching gift program guidelines. More information can be found on our website,, in the Community section at the top of the screen.

We appreciate the efforts you are making in our state and wish you success.

BETF thanks BDPA Baton Rouge co-founder Glenda Chappell for her generosity
. It is great that Glenda took the time to leverage her donation with her employer's 100% matching gift program. Our hope is that our readers will research existence of matching gifts programs to see if the same potential exists at your workplace.

Another option is that our readers reach out to support our efforts to raise funds for college scholarships to support the young people being trained by BDPA Baton Rouge.
