Grants ranging from $500 to $1,000 to Cavendish, Vermont nonprofit organizations, public institutions, and individuals to enhance the quality of life in the local community. Funding supports educational, cultural, and artistic projects, programs, and events that benefit the local 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.

By granting modest sums, the Community Fund seeks to assist local organizations in building stronger community relationships and quality of life in Cavendish. The projects, programs or events that the Fund will normally consider are education in its broadest sense, cultural events and the promotion of the arts.
