The deadline to apply for the Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation’s annual community grants is Tuesday, Oct. 1.
Qualified local nonprofits, clubs, individuals and community groups are encouraged to apply for funding through the program.
Grants of up to $3,800 are expected, depending on the number of projects approved. Grants are limited to capital projects, and cannot be used for operating expenses or budgets already in place for recreational programs.
The goals of the program are to improve Bainbridge Island parks and trails in ways that reflect community priorities; to inspire partnerships that provide stewardship of Bainbridge Island parks and trails; and to help define community goals for island parks while educating the public as to needs and opportunities of Bainbridge parks, trails and facilities.
