CCF Accepting Applications for Spring 2013 Grants
Cavendish, Vt., February 15, 2013
The Cavendish Community Fund is now accepting applications for grants that will be awarded this spring. The deadline for applying is April 12, 2013. Applications and guidelines are available at the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association’s website: www.CavendishCCCA.org under the Community Fund tab. Hardcopies are also available at Crow’s Bakery in Proctorsville and at the Cavendish town office.
The fund inaugurated its program in 2007 of giving cash grants to organizations for educational and cultural projects, programs and events. Last fall awards were given to three organizations; to the Proctorsville Fire Department for its Junior Firefighter training program, to Stepping Stones Preschool for a nature education program, and to the Cavendish Fletcher Community Library for a town-wide CPR learning program.
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 the amounts requested.
For further information on applying, on eligibility or on any other aspect of the grant program, or for help completing the application, please call Peter LaBelle at 226-7250 or Barbara Dickey at 226-7187.
