The Administrators have extended the BCIF Family Application deadline from July 31, 2020 to August 31, 2020. The remaining schedule for selection of programs and projects and the distribution of BCIF funds will remain in place.

The Boeing Company has created the Boeing Community Investment Fund (“BCIF”) to provide philanthropic support to the local communities affected by the Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Air Flight 302 accidents. Boeing has retained Kenneth R. Feinberg and Camille S. Biros to design, implement and administer the Protocol and procedures for the submission, evaluation, allocation and distribution of the BCIF. The focus of the BCIF will be on working closely with the individual Families who lost loved ones in the Accidents to determine their preferences in distributing the funds.

The effective date of the Program is April 20, 2020.

The key features of the BCIF are as follows:

  • Eligible Programs will be recommended by Family members.
  • All Family members and representatives are invited to submit an Application Form indicating their recommendations and preferences for a Program that meets the eligibility requirements.
  • Eligible Programs must be engaged in providing direct humanitarian support to those local communities affected by the Accidents – such as by providing food, clean water, shelter, clothing, education and healthcare. Eligibility may also include international organizations engaged in humanitarian support which organizations were encouraged and supported by loved ones lost in the Accidents.
  • Communities affected include areas in and around the locations of the two Accidents and those local communities where those lost in the Accidents lived and worked.
  • Eligible Programs must meet the requirements for BCIF financial support as outlined in the Protocol.
  • Application packets including the Protocol and the Application Form will be distributed to all victims’ Families beginning on April 20, 2020 and are available on this website. The Application Form may be completed and submitted directly through this website.
  • Only one Application Form for each Family should be submitted.
  • The Administrators will distribute Program Application Forms to those Programs identified by the Families.
  • The Deadline for Submission of the Program Application Forms is September 30, 2020.
  • The Administrators will complete the compliance review of all recommended Programs on November 1, 2020 and will distribute and post the final list of approved Programs on this website available for review by all Families, Family Associations and other interested parties.
  • During the period from November 2, 2020 through December 31, 2020, all Families, at their sole option, will identify which of the final approved BCIF Programs they select to honor the name of a lost loved one and the name of the Family. (Families may choose not to participate in this naming process.)
  • The Administrators will complete all BCIF distributions by January 15, 2021.
