BFG. Supporting the good in communities across the country.

Business for Good loves working with entrepreneurs, organizations and causes that seek to improve the world around them. Businesses who have their heart set on creating change. Visionaries who provide solutions to problems that impact us all. Trailblazers who need a helping hand to move ahead.

We are always inspired by the people we work with in the Greater Capital Region of New York and beyond – and we can’t wait to meet and continue to partner with those who share our vision.

Our grant application is now accessible, with the purpose of BFG learning more about YOU. What challenges you and your immediate community are facing. The help you need to achieve your dream. The specifics of what makes your cause unique. The good you are doing that needs support. If you believe your idea, project or proposal aligns with our mission, please apply through our online application.

The BFG Foundation Grant Application FAQs

All applications for support must be submitted through our online application process. A simple tutorial link is available, and if you still have questions, please reach out to us by emailing our Grants Administrator.

Apply for a Grant

The Business for Good Foundation supports a variety of applicants including small businesses, entrepreneurs, as well as not-for-profit business organizations.

Applicants who have previously applied for a grant from BFG and have received a grant may not apply for another grant within one year from the date of their first grant award.  Applicants who have previously applied for a grant from BFG and BFG declined to fund the grant, may not apply for another grant within one year from the date of their first grant application.

We do not fund religious or political organizations/individuals. However, outreach projects and programs sponsored by religious organizations may be considered if they fall within the parameters of BFG’s main focus areas.

BFG reviews proposals throughout the year as follows: requests under $10,000 are reviewed on a rolling basis and those at $10,000 and above are reviewed quarterly by the Board of Directors.

As you might expect, we receive more requests each year than we are able to fund. As a result, we only consider projects that fit within our grant making priorities, guidelines, and overall mission.

The portal application can be viewed on a mobile device; however, the application itself needs to be completed on a browser. Chrome is preferred.
