Grant Submission Guidelines and Application

Thank you for your interest in submitting a grant proposal to the BMEF. The BMEF is a non-profit organization that exists to provide support to the Briarcliff Manor School District. Every proposal is reviewed with the care and consideration necessary to make responsible decisions regarding the expenditure of community-donated funds. Please review the following guidelines prior to your submission.

  1. Applications may be submitted by BMUFSD faculty, community members or students. Student and community member applications require a BMUFSD faculty member sponsor.
  2. Submit 2-3 quotes from different vendors, only one of these vendors need to be from an approved district vendor.
  3. For Technology-related grants, the District Director of Technology (or their designee) must review the application prior to submission.
  4. Applications for projects and programs that have previously received BMEF Grant Funding are permitted, HOWEVER, the BMEF cannot guarantee there will be adequate funding available for repeat grant requests after new grant submissions are reviewed and approved. There may be an opportunity for partial funding.
  5. The BMEF’s priority in funding grants is for innovative and creative projects, programs, and/or equipment that are currently outside the scope of the district’s available budget.
  6. The deadline for grant submissions is February 2, 2018. Please complete the attached application and send to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by this deadline.
  7. Through a series of meetings, reviews and follow up in February and March 2018, the BMEF Grant Committee will make recommendations on grant funding that will be voted upon by the entire BMEF Board of Directors at our annual meeting in April 2018. Applicants will be notified of grant decisions after that time.
  8. Grants are generally expected to be funded in the next fiscal year following submission. If funds are desired prior to that, please indicate this and the reasoning in the appropriate area of this application.
  9. Submissions of grant proposals outside of the normal time cycle of review and approval are discouraged. However, there may be unique circumstances that allow for the BMEF to consider “Out of Cycle” requests. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
