City of Montpelier - Montpelier Community Fund (MCF)
Grants to Vermont nonprofit organizations, arts organizations, and individual artists in eligible locations to positively impact the local community and to carry out specific arts events. Funding is intended for general operating support, project grants, and program support. Eligible projects and events must benefit the residents of Montpelier.
The MCF offers two types of grants: General Community Fund and Arts Grants. The Arts Grants are designed to support specific art-related events (or series of events) to benefit the community. General Community Fund grants support operating budgets or specific projects of local community service and related organizations.
Applicants must indicate what kind of funding request they are making: general operating, program, or project. General operating is intended to be used toward the general mission of the organization. Program support is restricted funding for an ongoing program of the organization. A project grant is intended for a one-time or specific project. All are acceptable and no preference is given to any of these choices.
