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.


Pivot Opportunity 2020 Grants:
May 8, 2020 & August 21, 2020

Professional Development Grants:
May 15, 2020 & October 1, 2020

Small Grants: 
Not offered in the 2020-21 grant year
