CCF Accepting Applications for Fall 2013 Grants
Cavendish, Vt., September 11, 2013
The Cavendish Community Fund has announced that it is now accepting applications for grants that will be awarded this fall. The deadline for applying is Oct. 15. Applications are available at the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association's website: www.CavendishCCA.org and include instructions on how and where to apply.
The fund began in 2007 giving cash grants to organizations for educational and cultural projects, programs and events of benefit to the Cavendish community. Last spring awards were given to two organizations. First, the Cavendish Town Elementary School was awarded a grant to defray the cost of providing the third grade class with a hands-on theater production experience through writing, directing, and acting in a play.The second grant went to Gethsemane Church to underwrite the Raise the Roof Music Series and to enable the organizers to attract a wide variety of musical programs.
Projects, programs or events must directly benefit the Cavendish community in some way. A panel of local citizens reviews all applications and recommends the ultimate grantees based on the quality and feasibility of each proposal. Grants are not expected to exceed $1,000 each and will depend primarily on the number of applications and amounts requested.
For further information on applying, on eligibility or on any other aspect of the grant program, or help completing the application, please call Peter LaBelle at 226-7250 or Barbara Dickey at 226-7187.
