Funding is now available for organizations and projects across the state of Vermont through the Vermont Community Foundation’s Spark Connecting Community competitive grant program.

Spark supports projects that nurture community and build social capital—the connective tissue of our communities. Spark prioritizes community resilience and strength, increased civic engagement, and collaboration among organizations. The program accepts applications focused on hyperlocal, place-based projects (applications from a single community or a few towns working in partnership in the same region) or statewide/regional projects that support a community of individuals with a shared identity or interest.

Grant awards range from $500 to $3,000. First-time grant writers, community groups, and grassroots organizations are encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted through 5:00 p.m. on Monday, July 18, 2022. Visit to learn more and apply.
