BHCD General

Description

In order to provide the services and infrastructure that it does, Blue Hill Community Development’s board (and others) volunteer time and other resources to keeping the organization going—meeting to consider new and review existing projects, manage the organization’s (and sponsored projects’) financial affairs, update the bhcd.org web site, maintain our legal and tax status, etc.

Formation of BHCD

Action Taken

Blue Hill Community Development was launched via the action of several “incorporators” and elected its inaugural Board of Directors. The organization is still awaiting approval from the Maine Secretary of State and, once approved, will apply to the IRS for federal tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3) organization.

Grant Applications

While many of BHCD’s initial organizational costs and activities have been contributed on a pro bono basis, other costs (such as insurance) will require funding. BHCD discussed applying for several potential grants that fund “seed capital” and “capacity building” for suitable local organizations.

Johanna Barrett has offered to help guide BHCD through the process of applying for several grants—anyone willing to help out is encouraged to get in contact with her or BHCD at info@bhcd.org
