Grant Declination: Bader Philanthropies (BDPA Milwaukee)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Milwaukee chapter had our grant proposal declined by Bader Philanthropies. We had sought $10,000 for the 2018 Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program.

Daniel Bader, president and CEO, wrote,

Dear Mr. Hicks:

On behalf of Bader Philanthropies, thank you for your recent application. Our Program Committee has had the opportunity to review your inquiry, but unfortunately we are not able to consider your request for funding at this time. Although your objectives may be worthy, please understand that the Foundation’s giving is limited, which means we can only consider a fraction of the requests received in light of the tremendous level of need in the communities we aim to serve.

If you should have any questions, please contact Kristen Lie, Grants Manager, at 414-755-4365 or

We appreciate the time and effort organizations put into their applications and wish you the very best of luck in your work.

Daniel J. Bader
President and CEO
Bader Philanthropies, Inc
BETF is willing to work with BDPA Milwaukee and the other 45 chapters to obtain the funding that they need to successfully deliver their 2018 SITES program. Simply reach out to the BETF executive director if you have questions or wish to discuss further.
