Funding is now available for organizations and projects across the state of Vermont through the Spark Connecting Community competitive grant program at the Vermont Community Foundation. 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 will accept applications from 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.

Spark awards grants of $500-$5,000. First-time grant writers are encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted through 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 7, 2023. Visit to learn more and apply.
