GivingHow to Give

You want to engage. We do, too.

The strength of a community is defined by participation. Bainbridge Community Foundation is a way for individuals, nonprofits, and businesses to become meaningfully involved in our community. Here is how you can give back:

  • Open a Fund: Let's start a partnership!
  • Join the Leadership Circle: Give $1,000 or more to the area of greatest need at BCF and gain access to special events and gatherings with like-minded individuals.
  • Partner with Grantmaking: Use your skills as a volunteer for the Annual Community Grants Cycle or financially contribute to our grant cycles.
  • Underwrite an Event: Support BCF events that bring people together to form strong and lasting partnerships. Contact us at info@bainbridgecf.org if you would like to learn more.

Reap the benefits of a community foundation

We simplify the giving process. Working with us is an easy way to give to multiple causes, focus your giving strategy, and support community needs now and in the future.

Increase the strength of your gift. Put your charitable dollars where they make the biggest difference. We help you decide where to give by offering our experience in the community along with analyzing data from our research focused on local needs. 

Your donations will be tax-free. BCF is also a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation organized under the laws of the State of Washington, and contributions to the foundation qualify as charitable deductions as allowed by the IRS.
