BCH Foundation Healthcare Grant Application Process
The BCH Foundation Board of Directors will review all grant funding applications at the regularly scheduled September Board Meeting. Applicants will be notified of a decision on or before October 1st. In the event of an approved grant, funds can be distributed by either vendor check (please submit an invoice/bill), or by a check specifically to your organization (please submit a copy of the paid invoice/bill). The funds allocated for this project will be held by the Foundation until the proper paperwork has been completed. Please note that grant funds will only be available during the applicable fiscal year, between the dates of October 1 and June 1 when the next grant application cycle opens.
Grant recipients are required to submit a final report on the use of granted funds no later than June 1, when the next grant application cycle opens. The grant report is simply an evaluation by the grant recipient of the project funded. The BHC Foundation will evaluate the outcomes of grant awards, and therefore the timely submission of a grant report is very important. If a grant recipient is unable to meet the reporting deadline, we request that they contact the Foundation in writing or by phone prior to the due date. No new grant requests will be considered until a satisfactory report has been received. A copy of the grant report form will be sent to all applicants who are chosen for grant funding.
To allow ample time for the BCH Foundation Board members to review each request thoroughly, applications must be received by 4 pm July 30th.
