Foundation / Corporation
van Beuren Charitable Foundation (vBCF)
Grants to Rhode Island nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for programs, projects, and capital campaigns. Funding is intended to make a positive impact on the community in four priority areas: health, education, economic development, and improving common spaces. Preference is given to proposals that demonstrate the greatest likelihood of achieving measurable results. Projects must benefit Newport County and Aquidneck Island.
Across the priority areas, the Foundation invests in design that connects the improvement of buildings and landscapes to community aspirations. The Foundation is open to innovative and collaborative approaches, encouraging proposals in the discovery, planning, and pilot stages. Additionally, the Foundation invests in strengthening organizations. Through their programming and grant-making, they seek to advance the community’s capacity for leadership and best practices needed to thrive and to sustain high-performing nonprofits.
There are two application options based on the type of request, each having different requirements: for Project/Program Support, or for New Construction, Major Renovations, Capital Campaigns. To preview these requirements and for other helpful information, see Supporting Documents below.
For more information on each of the four areas of grant priorities, see https://www.vbcfoundation.org/approach-1.
