Cavendish Community Fund accepting grant applications

The Cavendish Community Fund is now accepting grant applications for spring 2022 awards. The fund has given grants twice each year for the past 15 years. Grants will be awarded for cultural, educational or artistic programs, projects or events that benefit the people of Cavendish.

The fund considers applications filed anytime, but will only award spring 2022 grants to those who file by Monday, May 2.

Applications can be made by letter that describes the organization that is applying, the project proposed and the overall budget, including the amount requested. It must also describe how the project will benefit the people of Cavendish.

Application instructions can be obtained by emailing or by mailing to the Cavendish Community Fund, P.O. Box 154, Proctorsville, VT 05153.

Projects for which funds are sought must directly benefit the Cavendish community in some way. A panel of local citizens reviews all applications and recommends grant awards 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 received and the amounts requested.

Past grants have benefited schools, churches, the library, fire departments and a variety of non-profits in Cavendish. If you have a project to benefit Cavendish and need financing, you can contact the fund to discuss your idea.

For further information on applying, on eligibility, on any other aspect of the grant program, or for help completing an application, please call Douglas McBride at 226-7142 or Peter LaBelle at 226-7250.
