Got an Idea?
Ideas are what drives BHCD. The BHCD organization was structured to manage and facilitate a portfolio of projects addressing needs in our community.
First Step: Let us know with a quick email
The BHCD Board meets regularly to evaluate ideas from the community. To get the process started, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (or visit with) one of the BHCD directors. (But we prefer an email, since reducing the idea to writing often helps it take shape in the proposer’s mind and makes it clearer to us what’s in mind.)
We’ll review the idea and give you some feedback as to whether we think:
- it fits our mission and should be pursued with our support;
- doesn’t really fit our mission, but we have some ideas/feedback as to other ways to push it forward; or
- doesn’t fit our mission and we don’t think we’re in a position to help.
If the BHCD Board does think it may be able to support your idea/project, we’ll assign one of our Directors to work with you to move it forward and to coordinate between BHCD and your project efforts. (If you think someone on our Board is a natural fit for helping to coordinate your project idea, please do let us know!)
Second Step: Formalize the Project Description
Together with the BHCD Director assigned to your project, we’ll ask you to make a more detailed proposal before we commit to the idea.
