Grant Programmes at BCF

Although building a community endowment is the Bermuda Community Foundation's primary purpose at this time -- and we are in our infancy, some grant opportunities do become available primarily through two grant programmes: the Managed Grants Programme and the BCF Central Fund Small Grants Programme.

Managed Grant Programmes

Managed Grant Programmes are external funders' grant programmes to which the foundation provides support.  These are donor-advised programmes.  Sponsoring funders of managed grant programmes are typically companies or donors who have established a Donor Fund at BCF.  The application deadlines vary considerably depending on the sponsoring Donor Fund.

Currently, the managed programme grants are considered quarterly:

January
March/April
September/October
December
