In 2007, the BGS Board of Governors approved a grant to assist the Alumni Chapters in funding. The purpose of the grant is to allow the Alumni Chapters to focus on development of the chapter, enhance programming and reach more BGS alumni members in their geographic location.
The grant program provides 500 USD semi-annually to chapters that wish to participate and that are eligible, based on specific criteria. The grant was originally approved for a five (5) year timeframe (starting July 2007 ending June 2012) with an individual chapter only being allowed to participate for a maximum of three (3) years. In February 2012, the BGS Board of Governors approved an indefinite extension of the grant program for the Alumni Chapters.
