Community Grants

BCF Community Grants focus on local funding opportunities that are tailored to support the long term success of children, youth and families throughout Benton County. BCF does fund capacity and capital projects but the project must also fit within one of the priority areas below. All grant requests must be for a program which supports the growth and success of children, youth, and families in Benton County and fit within one of the following priorities:

  • Arts and Culture  (e.g. art programs, musical opportunities for youth)
  • Basic Needs  (e.g. school supplies, emergency food)
  • Investing in Youth  (e.g. education, mentorship, early literacy, scholarships)
  • Science, Technology and the Environment (e.g. nature and technology focused summer camps or after school programs)
