The Breakfast Exchange Club makes grants to local 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations throughout the year. Our fiscal year runs July 1 - June 30. More than one request in a fiscal year or calendar year will be considered.
Those organizations whose request passes both the Community Service Committee and the Board of Directors, will be notified and payment arrangements made, in most cases a letter will not be sent to those we decline to fund given the time restraints on our all volunteer crew. This club primarily spends over 2,000 man hours a year raising funds, so we usually contribute cash rather than labor to community projects.
Other areas we have made grants include disabled/handicapped sports programs, Billings park system development, Drug Abuse Resistance Education, Crime stoppers reward fund, Kids Against Crime-Adopt a Cop, Salvation Army Dress-a-Child, scholarships, Seniors Christmas Tour-of-Lights, and many others. Programs funded and the amounts typically varies substantially based on that year's mix of members making the decision.
Our range is currently between $100 and $7,500 to a single organization. Most are between $750 and $5,000.
Attach a copy of your organization’s budget, the projects budget and sources of funds, general information of your purpose (i.e. a brochure or annual report), and a copy of your IRS 501(c)(3) letter along with the application.
