Apply for a Grant

The Foundation’s online grant application is open.  The application deadline is May 1, 2019 at 12:00 noon (CST). This will allow applicants approximately ten to twelve weeks to prepare and submit the required information.

To be eligible for funding, the applicant organization must use the grant funds within and for the benefit of the residents and communities of the 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle.  Please review other eligibility criteria found on the “Program Overview” page.

You should contact the Foundation prior to submitting an application so that we may discuss your proposed project and answer any questions you might have about the process. These meetings are extremely helpful for both the applicant and the foundation, and are strongly encouraged.

It is important to remember that:

  • Organizations should provide evidence of support for the request, ability to work with other agencies, and evaluation of potential duplication of services.
  • Organizations should not request funds more than once in a 12-month period.
  • In general, the Foundation will not consider a grant request for less than $2,500.

For additional information, please contact Jessica Tudyk, Program Officer, at jessica@bivinsfoundation.org or by phone at 806-379-9400.
