Grant Proposal: Macy's Foundation (BDPA Cincinnati)

Giving back to the communities where Macy's employees work and live is a deeply held value for the retail giant. They are proud that their contributions, leadership and volunteer efforts help create strong communities – providing a better environment for our stores to do business and for our employees and customers to live and work.

Collectively, contributions in 2012 from the company and the Macy’s Foundation – as well as employee contributions through workplace giving campaigns and customer contributions through its signature giving programs – totaled more than $70 million. Macy's associates, like Johnathan Watkins, gave more than 125,000 hours of their personal time for community service.

As such, we are proud to report that a $5,000 grant proposal was submitted to the Macy's Foundation earlier today. The proposal seeks funding to support the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) programs hosted by our BDPA Cincinnati chapter.

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) will work with any interested chapter to obtain grant funding for its SITES program. Just contact the BETF executive director to get started!
