Grants of up to $7,000 to West Virginia nonprofit organizations, schools, public institutions, and municipalities in eligible locations to address community needs. Funding is intended for programs and projects addressing arts, education, economic development, health and human services, public recreation, and civic beautification. Programs must benefit Raleigh County.

BAF places priority on the following types of projects:

  • Projects that either serves a significant number of residents or reach a group of under-served residents of Raleigh County.
  • Seed money for pilot projects or for a new organization designed to respond to unmet or emerging community needs.
  • Sudden or urgent needs where prior planning for such needs could not reasonably have been made.
  • Projects that empower organizations to obtain on-going financial support from other sources.
  • Matching grants to provide leverage for additional funding.
  • Capital and equipment needs.
  • Innovative special projects

The Distribution Committee tends to look favorably upon those requests that show additional sources of project funding.
