Each year the BWC donates to local 501(c)(3) organizations that impact the Bedford community. Requests will be reviewed by the Charitable Donations Committee; reviewed by the BWC Board at its March 2017 meeting; and presented and voted upon by the BWC membership at the April business meeting. Disbursements will be made in May 2017. In 2016, BWC made contributions to Meals on Wheels, UpReach, the Bedford Historical Society, Liberty House, the Bedford Library, and Stand By Me.
