Benton Community Foundation Insights: Did you know...
BCF’s 2015 Community Grants Cycle received an unprecedented amount of grant requests!
Although BCF has thirty-one endowed funds that provide the funding for our annual competitive grant cycle, the demand this year has exceeded available funds by 3 to 1 for children and youth. This means that community members reviewing these applications not only face the age old question of “a little to all” vs. “more to some,” reviewers also have a greater demand for limited funds. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Donate by April 10th, 2015 and 100% of your tax deductible donation will go directly to Benton County charities for their grant requests.
BCF knows that together, as a community, we can meet our goal of $100,000 and continue to provide youth and children with outstanding opportunities to be successful in our community! Donate Now and select the Close the Gap for Children & Youth! Fund from the drop down menu.
