Cavendish Community Fund accepting applications for grants

CAVENDISH-The Cavendish Community Fund announced, Feb. 10 that it is accepting applications for grants that will be awarded this spring.

The fund distributes cash grants to organizations and individuals for educational and cultural projects, programs and events that are available to members of the Cavendish community. The fund has actively supported Cavendish events since its inception in 2007. Last year awards were given to the Cavendish Community Theater to defray the cost of its 2011 summer production, and to the Proctorsville Volunteer Fire Department for use in their educational programs.

Projects, programs or events must directly benefit the Cavendish community in some way. A panel of local citizens reviews all applications and recommends the ultimate grantees 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.

The deadline for applying is April 15, 2012.  Applications are available online at and include instructions on how and where to apply. For further information or help call Peter LaBelle at 226-7250 or Barbara Dickey at 226-7187
