Did you notice the name change? BACF Semiannual Grants will now be referred to as Community Partnership Grants to reflect the nature of our work with area nonprofits.

Nonprofits Work Together

From closed offices and canceled fundraising events to adaptive programming for the digital landscape, we know that our local nonprofits are feeling the effects of COVID-19 in varying ways, both big and small. Perhaps operations have already shifted, or perhaps you're only starting to experience the longer-term implications. Here at the Community Foundation, we are listening and working through ways to best serve you. Know that the work you do is important and that together, we will see our community through this.
