• Philanthropic Grants

  • Giving Back Is Good for business

    The BDC Board of Directors established a Philanthropic Committee to coordinate charitable contributions to causes within the community. The BDC committee makes awards to local not-for-profit public charities, giving priority to those efforts that positively impact economic vitality, provide services directly to beneficiaries, address root problems and serve disenfranchised groups.

    Berwyn headquartered not-for-profits can make application for funding throughout the year as needs arise with awards based upon available BDC funding. Complete eligibility requirements can be found in the application packet.
