Our podcast is all about BCF’s Community Grants Cycle and BainbridgeGives.org! Community Grants Cycle BCF’s Community Grants Cycle supports grant requests across all nonprofit sectors that:
  • Directly benefit the community
  • Support extremely vulnerable populations
  • Support diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Give access to programs and services that enhance affordability for those who might otherwise face barriers
  • Support organizational success
Grants may be used to support nonprofit programs and projects, capital projects, access to services, or operational expenses. BCF welcomes your support to help fulfill these requests to sustain the wonderful programs that benefit our community. We are eager to connect you to the meaningful work of the many nonprofits that serve the Bainbridge community. We hope you'll find a project or many projects that inspire you to give! During last year's grants cycle, BCF awarded 49 grants for a record $273,535. Since the inception of this funding program in 2005, grants totaling more than $2.11 million have been awarded.
