Application Deadline: BCM Community Grant @ Online
Jun 1 all-day
BCM Insurance is launching a Community Grants Program in 2019. With an annual investment in excess of $200,000 their goal is to strengthen local non-profit organizations’ capacity to continue to do their great work in serving Niagara’s communities. BCM Insurance has identified two types of initiatives to support: Capital or equipment that can be sustained on an ongoing basis beyond this funding (maximum $50,000) Special events taking place in the community (maximum $25,000) Only applicants who speak to the Grants Administrator at least one week prior to the deadline will have their applications reviewed by Grant Assessors. The Grants Administrator can be reached at communityfund@bcminsurance.com. Just send your name and a day time phone number along with a brief description of your project. You will be called back shortly after sending your email. BCM Insurance is asking all applicants to prepare a three-minute video on their project. This way you have an opportunity to share your passion for your organization and project and how BCM Insurance can help ignite that passion. Further details on the video are included in the grant application. This does not need to be a professionally produced video. It can be as simple as one produced on a cell phone. Further details and applications are available online.
