Fund history

Opened in 2011, the BCF Fund for Brookline is an internal unrestricted fund. The vision for this fund was to enable BCF to provide substantial, sustainable, and flexible grants year-over-year through. Through this fund, BCF awards grants to nonprofits, Town government agencies, and community organizations to support: general operating costs; new program development; program scaling and maintenance; staff positions; strategic planning efforts; diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts; trainings, and; other activities undertaken to support the Brookline community.

In 2021, the BCF Fund for Brookline reached a new milestone and began funding multi-year grants to nonprofits through the Community Grant Program. These multi-year grants help provide our nonprofit partners with increased financial support and the flexibility to develop and launch new programming and support initiatives over time.
