The BVCF has awarded grants since the early 1990’s. Our funds come from interest earned on donations from many generous individual and business donors. Our smallest grants are for a few hundred dollars. We have awarded grants for up to $6,000.00 but the average grant is in the $1,000.00 to $3,000.00 range. Our total available funding each year depends on donations and interest earned.
Each year income from BVCF endowments is offered to students to assist with reaching educational goals. Applications are accepted in Spring. Students can apply for three types of Learning Awards:
Fritz Pfeiffer Adult Learning Awards
