The Cavendish Community Fund has announced that it is now accepting grant applications for fall 2014 awards. The deadline for applying is October 1, 2014. Applications are available at the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association’s website and include instructions on how and where to apply.
The fund began in 2007 giving cash grants to organizations for educational, artistic and cultural projects, programs and events of benefit to the Cavendish community. Last spring the fund awarded a grant to 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.
Projects, programs or events 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 and the amounts requested.
For further information on applying, on eligibility or on any other aspect of the grant program, or for help completing the application, please call Peter LaBelle at 226-7250 or Barbara Dickey at 226-7187.
