General BCSF Grant Application: Bethel Community Services Foundation considers three sizes of grants (mini, major and private endowment grants). All grant requests must address the Foundation’s mission and priorities in these areas:
- Bridge Grants: Our top priority is to work in collaboration with other organizations and institutions to plan and fund community improvements. The Foundation will consider requests for project planning support and program start-up funding.
- Capital Grants: Of equal priority, supporting new construction or repairing or remodeling existing buildings to better accommodate the provision of community services and cultural activities.
- Operating Grants: While not of equal priority, operations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
- Business/Enterprise Funding: This may comprise a variety of business/enterprise needs in which Foundation may consider participating. Applicants should have a prepared business plan when applying.
John Malone Fund Application: The John Malone Fund was created by the Bethel Community Services Foundation Board of Directors in 2008 in honor of John Malone, who was integral in the creation of BCSF. Grants made from this fund will be dedicated to services for people with developmental disabilities and mental illness.
