Making a Difference
One of the greatest challenges facing America today is preparing our youth for the future...reaching them; empowering them and inspiring them to make goals and realize their potential to achieve. This challenge has never been greater. Thus, the opportunity never brighter for The Bill Dickey Scholarship Association (BDSA) to impact the lives of young men and women throughout the United States.
That's why each year, BDSA awards scholarship grant and financial aid packages to our youth. Awards range from one-time grants of $1,000 to four-years worth as much as $3,500 annually. Awards are based on academic achievement, entrance exam scores, financial need, references, evidence of community service, and golfing ability.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Black Owned Business Directory has launched a new website designed to help consumers promote and support black-owned businesses. According to the US Census, the average black owned business grosses about $72,000 per year. This is below the national average for other minority businesses which gross an average of $179,000. In addition, non-minority firms gross an average of $490,000 per year. The www.BlackOwnedBiz.com provides tools to strengthen networking abilities and to provide valuable business resources that will enable the black community to close the gap in the profit margin between black owned businesses and non–black owned businesses.
The Black Owned Business directory is a means to find and do business with black minority owned businesses. Businesses can add photos of their products or work samples, information about their business, coupons for current promotions and events, and receive direct contact from potential leads. Businesses can also receive and respond to reviews from their clients.
In addition to an online business directory that allows businesses a free and low cost means of advertising and promotions, the Black Owned Business Directory also provides business resources such as business tips, education, and the black community. The site includes a minority scholarship search, and spotlights positive events that occur within the black community.
