Our Mission and purpose

The Bowling Green Community Foundation, a non-profit entity, exists to improve the quality of life in the Bowling Green area by providing funding and support for diverse and helpful programs that enhance the health, welfare and vitality of the Bowling Green community. Private contributions are the sole support of the Foundation. 

The Foundation achieves its purpose through its grant program. At the end of each calendar year, and after careful evaluation of the applications submitted to the Foundation, the grants committee distributes funds to be used the following year. Its selections may include proposals written for educational or sports activities, health or safety initiatives, environmental sustainability, as well as for the visual or performing arts.

It is cause for celebration that many thousands of lives are touched as a consequence of the remarkable partnership between our donors and the outstanding organizations that exist to serve the residents of Bowling Green.
