CAVENDISH, Vt. – The Cavendish Community Fund is now accepting grant applications for fall 2017 grant awards. The deadline for applying is Oct. 15. Applications that miss that date will be considered in the spring.
This is the 10th year in which the Fund has provided support for educational, artistic, or cultural programs, projects, or events that benefit the Cavendish community in some way. The Fund has helped finance plays, workshops, and classroom events. It has contributed to the renovation of library and classroom spaces for better learning environments. It helped the tropical Storm Irene recovery by supporting a fundraising concert. It helped clean gravestones, dig for archeological artifacts, conduct open studios, show films, coordinate summer concerts, organize health training, and more.
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. Hard copies are also available at Crow’s Bakery in Proctorsville and at the Cavendish town office.
