    In 2001, a group of caring and concerned Bainbridge Island leaders came together to create a lasting community endowment, aiming to improve the quality of life in our community. Initially known as the Bainbridge Island Community Endowment, the Bainbridge Community Foundation helps people with philanthropic interests support the growing needs of nonprofit organizations that serve Bainbridge Island residents.

Capacity Building Grants Description:

BCF recognizes that one goal most organizations share is to perform their work more efficiently and effectively. This capacity building grant is part of a program to assess if focused grant making can help achieve that goal. Improvements in the areas of administration, governance, planning, and fundraising are most desired. Therefore, this grant will be focused on building an organization's internal capacity in these areas.

Community Response Fund (CRF) Description:

The Community Response Fund is an area-of-interest fund established by the Bainbridge Community Foundation in 2009. The fund began as an idea from a group of nonprofit staff and community leaders who wanted to ensure that Bainbridge residents would continue to be served by local human service agencies, despite any downturns in the economy and decline in agency donations. The purpose of the fund is to assist local non-profit human service agencies that experience an unexpected temporary funding need that impacts their ability to provide critical community services. As such, it provides a safety net for the agencies that provide a safety net for our community.
