As we enter the holiday season, BAF is reaching out to you with an opportunity to make a significant impact on Raleigh County through your generosity.
Over time, BAF has worked to identify & address the pressing needs of our community. We have successfully organized events, implemented programs, and collaborated with local partners to foster positive change. However, the journey toward community development is ongoing, and we are reaching out for support to continue these efforts.
BAF's current unrestricted fund initiatives include Grantseeker workshops, and our many grant programs (e.g., Community Grant, Students First, SLYP, Field of Interest). These projects aim to support nonprofit organizations and educators within the community, provide funding to worthy projects in our area, and address other emerging needs.
In the past, BAF has also held the Household Hazardous Waste Collection, established a Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund to provide grants & PPE items during the pandemic, and supported organizations with emergency funding using unrestricted dollars.
Here are ways you can support Raleigh County, by building unrestricted funds at BAF:
Start a Fund : You can start a named unrestricted fund for $5,000.
