Bainbridge Community Foundation


2017 Grants Report


Bainbridge Community Foundation awarded a record $269,887 to local nonprofit organizations through its 2017 Community Grants Cycle. Sixty-two organizations received funding in sectors including arts and culture, animal welfare, education, environment, health and human services, and recreation. This is the most dollars and the largest number of grantees ever awarded by BCF.

BCF has seen dramatic growth in its Community Grants Cycle, doubling annual grants by total dollars in just five years. In 2013, 49 local agencies received a total of $139,000 for an average grant of $2,800. 2017 saw an average award of $4,353, even as BCF funded a record number of organizations.

The Community Grants Cycle has made $1.84 million in local grants since the program began in 2005, providing support for specific programs, capital projects, as well as general operations of local nonprofit organizations.

After designing BCF’s annual report for 2016, Mad Dog produced 2017’s Grant Report using a similar visual style to establish baseline brand continuity. With a bright color palette and a focus on the surrounding community, MDG was able to showcase many of the grantees and their activities and contributions through the photos that were chosen for the report. “At-a-Glance” callouts help readers to quickly drill down to important facts and information.
