CCF Accepting Grant Applications
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 October 15, 2013. Applications are available at CavendishCCA.org. The fund began in 2007 giving cash grants to organizations for educational and cultural projects, programs and events to benefit the community. Last spring awards were given to two organizations: the Cavendish Town Elementary School, 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.; and Gethsemane Church to underwrite the Raise the Roof Music Series, 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 the amounts requested.
For information on applying, eligibility or any other aspect of the grant program, or for help completing the application, please call Peter LaBelle at 802-226-7250 or Barbara Dickey at 802-226-7187.
