How it Works

  • Your organization works with our professional staff to complete a fund agreement.
  • We set up a special fund in the name of your nonprofit organization.
  • Your nonprofit organization receives regular statements on the fund.
  • You can add to the fund at any time.
  • We handle all the administrative details — including investment management and help in specifying grant disbursements — so that your organization puts assets where they’re needed.
  • The fund can be endowed to provide long-term income for your work, helping you do good work forever.

“A grant from BCF is a strong stamp of approval in our community. It helped us leverage a grant from the Harvest Foundation and inspired confidence with our teaching artists for the financial sustainability of the program — since government funding for the program began to decline a few years ago.”
