Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation (BTCF) - Quailwood Fund

Deadline Date:

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $500 to $10,000 to Red Rock Area, New York nonprofit organizations and public agencies to enhance the quality of life of local residents and to improve public services. Funding is intended to support public recreation facilities, conservation work, educational scholarships, and fire and rescue facilities. Applications for capital improvements, and other capital acquisitions will be considered provided that they afford maximum community benefit.

Eligible projects are those that help retain a strong sense of community in Red Rock by bolstering community gatherings, encouraging a diversity of participation in the life of the community and supporting a wide range of social and economic opportunities for residents.

While applications for publicly funded infrastructure projects (those paid for by tax dollars) are welcome, they need to focus on augmenting the public service rather than replacing them or building them anew.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Awards will generally range between $500 and $10,000. There may be a larger amount allocated (up to $20,000) for a project of particular significance or urgency for the community.

Term of Contract:

Applications for multi-year grants (up to 3 years) will be considered.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applications will be accepted from nonprofit organizations (501(c)(3)) or public entities for programs/projects that serve/benefit the residents of, and that take place in, the Red Rock area as defined by the Quailwood Fund.

The exception to this requirement is the Conservation Club whose projects must serve Red Rock residents but may not all be located in the Red Rock area.

The Foundation does not support organizations which in their constitution, by-laws or practice, discriminate against a person or group on the basis of age, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, political affiliation or religious belief.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications are due by March 1, 2020.

You will be notified by email if your organization received full or partial funding or in some cases, if funding has been denied. Decisions are typically made within 6-8 weeks after the application deadline.

All Quailwood General Fund grants will require a 1:1 match. For grants of $7,500 and under, a minimum of 50% of the match must be in cash. For grants over $7,500, a minimum of 25% of the match must be in cash. In both cases, the balance may be in donated goods and/or services.
