Grant Propoal: The Kroger Co. Foundation (BDPA Cincinnati)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) worked closely with the officers of the BDPA Cincinnati chapter to submit a grant proposal to the The Kroger Co. Foundation seeking $5,000 for the 2018 Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program.  We hope to have an answer by the end of the year. 

The Kroger Co. Foundation was established in 1987 to support charitable activities in the communities where Kroger customers and associates live and work.Grants are made to feed the hungry, support breast cancer initiatives, provide disaster relief and assist local grassroots organizations. The Foundation relies on personnel in the Company’s retail operating units to recommend the most appropriate and effective use of Foundation resources in the community. BDPA Cincinnati sent its proposal to Reuben Shaffer, Chief Diversity Officer at Kroger.

BETF is willing to work with any of the 46 local BDPA 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.
