Funding is now available to nonprofits and municipal organizations through the Walter Cerf Community Fund at the Vermont Community Foundation. The Walter Cerf Community Fund makes grants to address charitable needs in the state of Vermont. Priority interests are the arts, education, historic preservation, and social services.

The fund will consider both small ($500-$5,000) and large (up to $25,000) grant requests. Organizations applying for a small grant may request program/project support or general operating support. Large grant requests must be program/project-specific and from organizations serving Addison County or Brandon.

Grants are made to organizations that either have a statewide constituency and make a unique contribution to Vermont or are located in or serve Addison County or Brandon. Approximately 70% of funds available will be awarded to programs and projects in and/or serving the Addison County and Brandon area. The remaining 30% of available funds will support programs and projects with a statewide constituency.

Applications will be accepted through 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 2, 2024.
