Grant Declination: Andrew Jergens Foundation (BDPA Cincinnati)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) teamed with BDPA Cincinnati chapter to submit a 'letter of inquiry' to the Andrew Jergens Foundation seeking permission to submit a full-fledged grant proposal. The proposal would ask for a $10,000 grant to support the chapter's 2015 Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program.

We learned today that our letter of inquiry was declined. The message read as follows:


Thank you for the Letter of Inquiry to The Andrew Jergens Foundation. After thoughtful review, we do not believe that your program is within the funding priorities and capacities of the Jergens Foundation at this time.

Thank you for all you do to improve the quality of life in our community.

Jim Huizenga
Senior Program Officer
Greater Cincinnati Foundation

We will continue to seek out funding in support of BDPA Cincinnati chapter. You can help ... please consider supporting the chapter's Brandon Berry Memorial Scholarship with your secure online donation!
