Grant Opportunities


The Battle Creek Community Foundation exists to improve the lives of people in and around Battle Creek. One of the ways that we do this is through grantmaking. Below you will find several opportunities to request funding for your program in conjunction with our focus areas. 

BCCF focus areas are defined through a process of strategic planning with board, committee members, key stakeholders and our staff.
