CCF Accepting Applications for Spring 2014 Grants
Cavendish, Vt., February 21, 2014
The Cavendish Community Fund is now accepting applications
for grants that will be awarded this spring.
The deadline for applying is April 15, 2014. In 2007 the fund inaugurated its program of
giving cash grants to organizations for educational, artistic or cultural
projects, programs or events. Last year
grants went to several organizations including the elementary school for a
drama-based collaborative project with the Weston Playhouse, to the Raise the
Roof concert series at Gethsemane Church, and to the Historical Society to help
edit a book on the life of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
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.
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
For further information on applying, on eligibility or on
any other aspect of the grant program, or for help completing the application,
