CCF Accepting Applications for Spring 2015 Grants
Cavendish, Vt., February 17, 2015
The Cavendish Community Fund is now accepting grant
applications for spring 2015 grant awards. The deadline for applying is April 1st.
Applications that miss that date will be considered in the fall. In 2007 the
fund inaugurated its program of giving cash grants to individuals or organizations
for educational, artistic or cultural projects, programs or events. 2014 grants
went to Stepping Stones Preschool for curriculum expansion, to Cavendish elementary
school for a drama-based collaborative project with the Weston Playhouse, and
to Gethsemane Church’s Raise the Roof concert series.
Grants are available for projects, programs or events that
directly benefit the Cavendish community in some way. A panel of local citizens
reviews the applications and recommends awards based on the quality and
feasibility of each proposal. The number of grants and the amount of each
depend on how many applications are received. Application 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.
For further information on applying, on eligibility or on
any other aspect of the grant program, or for help completing the application,
please call Barbara Dickey at 226-7187 or Peter LaBelle at 226-7250.
