Bainbridge Gives is OPEN!

May 14, 2024

BCF's Community Grants Cycle (CGC) is an opportunity for Island residents to support causes that matter most to them. Whether priorities lie in providing basic needs for neighbors, creating opportunities for traditionally underserved populations, or supporting creative new initiatives in the arts sector, Bainbridge Gives (the funding phase of the Community Grants Cycle), allows for everyone in our community to participate in the CGC.

This year, BCF received over $758,673 in requests. From May 15th through June 15th, you can support your favorite proposal(s) described in our Bainbridge Gives catalogue here, all of which have been vetted and approved by 55 dedicated volunteers from our community. Please log in to www.BainbridgeGives.org when it opens on May 15th to see how you can support these worthy applications.

Since this program began in 2005, BCF has awarded more than $4.5 million total through its annual Community Grants Cycle. The donation is tax deductible and 100% goes directly to the request.
