BNSF Railway Foundation

The BNSF Railway Foundation is dedicated to supporting the communities they serve and in which their employees live, work, and volunteer. Your organization, or program, should exist in or serve a community near one of BNSF's rail lines to be eligible to apply for grants. Please refer to the BNSF system map to determine whether you are located on a BNSF route.

The Foundation's Grants Review Team meets monthly so that there is no deadline for applying. Please be aware that it could take up to 6 months before a decision is made regarding our request, depending on whether they need additional information, and other factors.

One area of focus for BNSF Railway Foundation is: Civic services including organizations which are concerned with the environment, as well as local community issues such as crime prevention, parks and recreation, diversity and community development.

This is not a perfect fit for BDPA's SITES program ... however, BETF is willing to give it a try if there are interested local chapters.
