Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to New York nonprofit organizations in eligible regions to address the needs of local residents. Funding is intended to support programs and agencies serving the community in the areas of education, health, and welfare. Eligible applicants are social service agencies or programs serving the needs of residents in the Villages of Bronxville and Tuckahoe, New York, the Town of Eastchester, New York, and areas located in the 10708 zip code (“the BET Target Area”).

There are four categories of grants:

  1. Member Agency Grants: Agencies which receive funding for their operating and administrative budget as well as for program support are considered “Community Fund Member Agencies”. In addition to their regular allocations, member agencies may also receive discretionary grant funding. The Fund reserves the right to review this membership annually.
  2. Conditional Member Agency Grants: An organization not currently a member agency may apply for Conditional Agency Membership, which request will be reviewed by the Evaluation Committee and ultimately must be approved by the Board. 
  3. Discretionary Grants: Discretionary grants are meant to fund either a specific time-limited project/program or provide seed money for a new initiative. Priority will be given to projects that are deemed to meet critical community needs and for which there is no other source of funding available. Emphasis will be placed on projects which encourage collaboration across the community. The applicant organization must meet the basic criteria for membership and the following requirements:
    1. The target area derives direct identifiable benefits from the organization’s services.
    2. The organization’s program is considered to meet a critical local need.
    3. The Program has clearly stated goals/objectives achievable within the grant period.. 
  4. Community Program Grants: Certain discretionary grants may qualify to become a Community Program Grant after the first year of funding if determined by The Fund that it (1) meets a broad, on-going local need, and (2) the sponsoring group is not eligible to become a Member Agency.
