How are your dollars spent?
The money contributed by members goes towards grants in the upcoming year.
(*In 2017, BCF funded 65 local non-profits and initiatives that directly impacted our residents in the following areas: Human Service, Arts & Humanities, Seniors, Civic and Education)
Once per year each Fall, iGIVE365 members will have the opportunity to collectively select the philanthropic projects and programs that are most important to them. Based on member feedback and the top areas of interest, 6 finalists will be selected to submit video applications for a $10,000 Impact Grant, and members will vote to select the most compelling need.
This year, the Foundation did not have enough resources to fund the amount requested by the 60+ area non-profits’ grant applications. If only 329 individuals signed up as iGIVE365 members, we could fully fund the requests that came in this year. Think of the impact each iGIVE365 member could have.
Once you join, how do you get involved?
Make your vote count in the annual $10,000 Impact Grant selection process. You may also consider joining the BCF Grants Committee which reviews and allocates funds each year.
Watch your dollars at work. We announce the grantees and Impact Grant finalists in September, and you will get to see a year’s worth of impact and progress. We will keep you updated on the status of the grants, provide an opportunity to view final reports and hear success stories of the programs we fund, have an opportunity to participate in iGIVE365 member service projects and site visits throughout the year with featured grantees.
