2017 Fall Grant Cycle Now Open

Bartlesville Community Foundation is excited to accept grant proposals for three grants during the fall 2017 grant cycle. The Allied Arts & Humanities grant application will open August 1st and close September 1st at 5pm. Both the Legacy Hall of Fame Fund and Service League Fund will open grant applications September 1st and close October 1st at 5pm.

The Allied Arts & Humanities Fund delivers an opportunity to support greater Bartlesville area cultural organizations in their missions to provide access to arts and humanities programming. This grant specifically targets the funding of new programs; on-going programs that will serve new audiences; programs focusing on under-served audiences.  Grant requests cannot exceed 50% of the total project cost and should range from $500-$2000 maximum. The Allied Arts & Humanities should be submitted online at http://bartlesvillecf.org/grants-overview/ by 5pm on September 1st, 2017.

Each year, the Foundation’s Legacy Hall of Fame honors the families that have been generous to the Bartlesville community. To honor those members, the Foundation makes grants from the Legacy Hall of Fame Fund. “We want to continue the tradition of these philanthropic families by supporting nonprofits in their name,” notes Shawn Crawford, CEO of the Foundation.

Any 501(c)3 is eligible to apply for a grant from the Legacy Hall of Fame Fund. This fund looks for applicants with the most innovative proposals in the areas of programs, new initiatives, or capacity building. Several grants will be awarded and nonprofits may request up to $1,500.

The Service League continues its legacy of supporting Washington County youth through their Service League Fund, providing grants to programs and organizations that offer services to teens and children.

For more than 50 years, Service League provided teens with a safe place to gather at the Youth Canteen, awarded scholarships to area students and supported the youth of Washington County. The Service League operated the Bargain Box Annex and held the Kitchens & More Tour to support their charitable work.

The Service League Fund invites any 501(c)3 offering programs and services for youth in Washington County to apply for a maximum of $5,000. This fund looks for applicants searching for support in areas of general operating, programming, new initiatives and training.

Grant applications for both the Service League Fund and Legacy Hall of Fame Fund are to be submitted online at http://bartlesvillecf.org/grants-overview/  by 5pm on October 1st. Please contact Laura Jensen at 918.337.2287 with any questions or to request further details.
