Open Invitation Grants

BCM is proud to support the growth of our community by providing funding for programs that promote the well-being of those living in it. We welcome organizations aligned with our Vision, Mission and Values to apply for a grant.

Transom Grants are awarded to organizations for programs that have been screened by program staff and then approved by the Board of Trustees. BCM has biannual application cycles, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. Any nonprofit with programming focused on one of our zones of interest – Health, Education, Public Safety, Governmental Oversight – within the five parishes we work is eligible to apply. Transom Grants must be at least $50,000 per year for 1-3 years.
