Announcing Our New Grant Process for 2018!

Announcing a new grant process!Our goal is to make Branford a better place to live now and for generations to come, and we strive to make prudent community investments to further this cause.

In an effort to be more transparent, proactive, and responsive to Branford’s needs, the Branford Community Foundation (BCF) has revised its grant-making process. Starting February 1st, the BCF will move to a single grant application process, accepting grant applications from February 1 to March 15, 2018. More details and the updated grant application can be found on the BCF website.

We hope that this improves the grant application process for prospective applicants by providing clearer direction, opportunities to meet with BCF representatives before submitting a grant, and clarified instructions. Our ultimate goal is to make BCF more accessible and better able to serve our dynamic community.

Potential applicants are encouraged to attend one of two information sessions to be held at the Branford Fire Department (45 N. Main Street) on Monday, January 22, 2018 at 2 p.m. and Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 9 a.m. RSVP to Jennifer Mullett, Foundation Coordinator, at jmullett@branfordcommunityfoundation.org.

To further BCF’s mission to connect people who care with the causes that matter, we are helped by the generous donations of numerous Branford citizens. We are truly grateful and thank you for your support!
