5. Share the documents with your family and your professional advisors.
6. Transfer your gift to us.
7. Review our confirmation of your completed gift and the ongoing progress of grants that are awarded from your fund.

In response to the governors declared state of emergency to address the Coronavirus pandemic, the Bedford Central Library will be closed to the public beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020. As a result, The Bedford Community Health Foundation will make available curb side drop-off service for grant application delivery on March 18 through April 1st.

Our staff will be available to accept grant applications from 9 am to 3:30 pm each day. Prior to coming to drop-off your grant application, we ask that you call 540.586.5292 or call/text (540) 798-0214 so we can meet you outside. If someone is not available to meet you, please drop-off curbside to library staff and they will ensure we receive it.
