COVID-19 Response Fund

BCF has established a rapid response fund to provide resources to local nonprofit organizations that have expanded their operations or encountered unique funding challenges while responding to COVID-19.

BCF is currently providing grants of up to $5,000. Requests will be considered for organizations whose services have been directly affected by the pandemic—i.e., programs have expanded to meet local basic needs—as well as organizations experiencing revenue hardships related to social distancing protocols. The most immediate grants will support the most time-sensitive needs, while future grants will be aimed at offsetting long-term revenue disruptions, such as loss of revenue from cancelled fundraisers.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
