Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF) - Nelson County Community Fund (NCCF)
Grants to Nelson County, Virginia nonprofits and government agencies for community needs in categories that include, but are not limited to, education, human services, environment, health, and community development. Careful consideration is given to the potential impact of the project and to especially imaginative and collaborative approaches to solving community needs.
Both seed money grants for innovative new programs and sustaining grants to organizations performing services vital to the community will be considered. Projects of interest include those that assist citizens whose needs are not met by existing services and those that benefit a significant number of citizens of the community.
