Grant Seeker Information and Deadlines

As a partner in local efforts to support the greater Battle Creek area, we continually strive to be an engaged, effective, and efficient grantmaker. These efforts have led to the development of a “Grantseeker Orientation” to support potential grantees in applying for our grants, as well as provide opportunities for grantseekers to network with one another. These orientations will be held regularly and eligibility for applying for a grant is dependent on each potential grantee attending an orientation before a grant can be submitted. Grantseekers must attend annually to maintain eligibility.

Learn about:

  • The types of grants we offer
  • How grant decisions are made
  • How much funding you can request

Orientation Days and Times

Orientations are the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month. The 2nd Wednesday will always be from 2:00-3:00 p.m. and the 4th Wednesday will always be from 10:00-11:00 a.m.

For more information or to register for a particular orientation, please call us at 269.962.2181 or email us at bccf@bccfoundation.org.
