Submitting Your Application
The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Foundation uses an online application system for all of its grant proposal requests. We use the electronic process to save time, paper and administrative hours.
How it Works
As part of the "Request for Proposals" process, we post an electronic application. Once posted, this system requires you to create a log-in and user password, which the BCBSNC Foundation will never see. You need to remember your log-in and password for future use and to access your "saved" and "submitted" proposals.
The application can be completed in stages by using the "Save and Finish Later" feature. This means you can create a working draft over several weeks and come back to it at your convenience.
Each proposal for each focus area is different and encompasses a list of required attachments. These attachments will take you time to complete and pull together. You can upload the documents one at a time. The formats that are acceptable (e.g. Word or Excel or PDF) are listed.
Once you are confident in the finished application, you will then click "Review My Application" and it will show you the full proposal you've completed. If you are satisfied with the contents of your application, you'll click the Submit button. If you receive an error message it may mean that you haven't uploaded all attachments or that something is formatted incorrectly. Look for the red type to notify you of the problem. If you can't find the issue, please contact us. We want this to be easier on you - not harder!
Once your application has been submitted, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address that you used to create your online grant application account. Keep this confirmation for your records, as it will be the only email you receive from us.
If you are having trouble with the online application form, please email your questions to email@example.com or call Michael Gay at (919) 765-2826. If you have questions about the content of your proposal, you should call or email the program officer responsible for the focus area you are interested in applying to.
