Semi-Finalist Pitch Week:
In November, the Committee hears pitches from the semifinalist grant applicants to develop the slate of grant winners. Each semifinalist presents, or “pitches” their program, and then addresses questions from BWGC members. After the pitches have concluded, the assembled members deliberate, document feedback for the presenter, and develop a recommended slate of grantees which is later presented to the full membership for approval.

Grant Recipients Announced:
In December, Grant Recipients will be contacted and notified. Once grantees have completed acceptance, a press release will announce the recipients.

Grantee Celebration:
In January, Grantees will present their organization again to all members, donors, and key stakeholders. This is an opportunity to share how the funds will be utilized and other volunteer opportunities that may exist.

Only one application per organization will be considered.

Number of Grants
Multiple grants will be awarded.

Term of Contract
In 2023, the BWGC intends to award multiple multiple one-year grants, as well as a single two-year grant.
