Grant Declination: Rhode Island Foundation (BDPA Rhode Island)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) worked with BDPA Rhode Island chapter (president, Tiffany Wiggins) to submit a $10,000 grant proposal to The Rhode Island Foundation. If approved, the grant would provide partial funding for the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program in Providence, RI.

Unfortunately, our grant proposal was declined. The declination letter read as follows:

Mrs. Jeanette James
