Grant Proposal: Cisco Foundation (BDPA Atlanta)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) worked closely with the officers of the BDPA Atlanta chapter to submit a grant proposal to the Cisco Foundation seeking $15,000 for the 2018 Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program.  We hope to have an answer by the end of the year.

Cisco Impact cash grants go to carefully selected community organizations -- non-profit and non-government agencies -- that align strongly with their investment areas, grantmaking criteria, and policies.  Cisco Foundation focuses their grant-making activities on three issue areas: addressing basic human needs, improving access to education, and increasing individual economic opportunity. In order to maximize the collaborative impact of their investments, we partner with community organizations that leverage the Internet and communications technology to improve the efficiency and reach of their services.

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.
