About BCF Grants

Thank you for your interest in the BCF grant application process. BCF provides four types of investments into the community:

1. Competitive Grants: An annual process to review and support organizations and programs that serve the Branford Community. This is our primary funding opportunity through which most of our grant making occurs. The deadline for submitting an application for a competitive grant is March 11, 2022.

2. Emergent Grants: BCF understand that projects and emergencies arise that cannot be accommodated by an annual grant cycle. We reserve a small pool of funding for these types of grant applications, and applicants must clarify why the application was not submitted through the Competitive Grant process. Contact Foundation Coordinator Jennifer Mullett for information.

3. Sponsorships: BCF considers sponsorship opportunities on a case by case basis, as funding permits. BCF looks to support opportunities that are unique and/or support all of our Branford Community. Contact Foundation Coordinator Jennifer Mullett for information.

4. Scholarships: Scholarship awards for graduating seniors from Branford High School are reviewed and recommended by the Branford High School Guidance office. Questions about scholarships may be addressed to (203) 315-6730.
