The Rich and Kathleen Rutledge Fund seeks funding requests for civic projects in the city of Bartlesville (including new capital projects) and to support music/music education and arts/arts education. All interested organizations should submit a complete application. A complete application includes all required attachments. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Award decisions will be made by the BCF grant committee. Requests should not exceed $2,500.

 

Questions and request for details are welcome. Contact the BCF at 918.337.2287.

PRO TIP: Go through the application and copy all requested information onto a word document. Answer all questions in that word document so you can save your work as you go. When you have answered everything to your satisfaction copy and paste answers into the online form. Save the word document for the next time you submit a grant for that project so you don’t have to start from scratch.
