With the establishment of the BEMC Community Grants program in 2003, we expanded our commitment to improving the quality of life in our community. The Community Grants are funded by the proceeds of our auction at the Annual Meeting in September of each year. The goal is to lend a helping hand or provide seed money for worthwhile projects in five major areas: family services, civic and community programs, cultural and arts programs, emergency services and economic development.
Applications are accepted only between January 15 and February 15 of each year, with grants awarded in April.
