Philanthropic Grants

Charitable Giving

Good for community | Good for business

The BDC Board of Directors recently established a Philanthropic Committee to coordinate charitable contributions to causes within the community. A pilot program was created in 2014 with full program roll-out beginning in 2015. The BDC committee will make awards to local not-for-profit public charities, giving priority to those efforts that positively impact economic vitality, provide services directly to beneficiaries, address root problems and serve disenfranchised groups.

Berwyn headquartered not-for-profits can make application for funding throughout the year as needs arise with awards based upon available BDC funding. Complete eligibility requirements can be found in the application packet.
