The money which is raised from member donations, Charity Cup events, and other BHCF fundraising is awarded to local nonprofit organizations through a rigorous grant application and evaluation process. The grant cycle begins in late spring when the grant application is made available on the Berkeley Hall website.
Once applications are received, the BHCF Grants Committee reviews and evaluates all grant applications and makes recommendations to the BHCF Board of Trustees and Board of Directors for grant approval. Approved grants are paid at the end of the year. Additionally, the Grants Committee regularly monitors the grant recipients to ensure that the grant money is properly used.
Mid-June: The grant application is made available on the public website. Previous grant recipients are notified by email that the application is available, but any qualifying organization can submit an application for consideration.
Mid-August: Grants Committee receives complete and ﬁnal grant applications from organizations.
Sept/Oct: Grants Committee reviews grant applications and makes recommendations based on annual allocation to the Berkeley Hall Charitable Foundation Board of Trustees and the Berkley Hall Board of Directors.
Late October: Berkeley Hall Charitable Foundation announces awards to grantees via phone followed by the acceptance letter.
