Baptist Community Ministries recently awarded over $1.6M to local partners that are working directly with those affected by COVID-19. BCM’s Board of Trustees and senior management will continue to monitor the situation and communicate with grantees and philanthropic partners as we navigate the COVID-19 crises together. In the meantime, BCM will continue to fund ALL of its existing grant commitments.
