In addition to Board-initiated projects, the BCECM administers four funding programs: Research Grants, Community Project Grants, Small Grants, and Professional Development Grants.
In the Spring of 2020, the BCECM also funded a special Pivot Opportunity 2020 Grant to help stimulate choral and community growth during the COVID-19 pandemic. Two granting cycles were offered in May and August of 2020. The Small Grants competition was suspended for 2020 in lieu of these Pivot Opportunity 2020 Grants competitions.
