Grant Proposal: Nissan Foundation (BDPA Middle Tennessee)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) worked closely with the officers of the BDPA Middle Tennessee chapter to submit a grant proposal to the Nissan Foundation seeking $6,000 for the 2016 Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program. The funding was requested via the Nissan Neighbors program. We hope to have an answer within the next few weeks.

In the United States, Nissan Neighbors is a community-focused initiative dedicated to improving communities through charitable contributions and in-kind donations to nonprofit organizations working in three focus areas: education, the environment and humanitarian aid. All organizations applying for funding through Nissan Neighbors must meet the following requirements:
  • Have 501 (c)(3) non-profit status;
  • Support projects compatible with one of the Nissan Neighbors focus areas; and
  • Serve communities surrounding Nissan's affiliate locations, including Middle Tennessee (location of Nissan Americas corporate headquarters and manufacturing assembly plants in Smyrna and Decherd)
Nissan Neighbors accepts grant applications throughout the year. In support of a greener environment, the Nissan Neighbors application process is administered online. Hardcopy and paper applications are not accepted.

BETF is willing to work with any of the 47 local BDPA chapters to obtain the funding that they need to successfully deliver their 2016 SITES program. Simply reach out to the BETF executive director if you have questions or wish to discuss further.
