Apply for Funding

CVWGC provides assistance to people in need, by giving to the organizations that serve them. Each year, Circle Members come together, pool our dollars in a shared fund, and decide together where to give that money. In the process, we learn about our community’s needs, nonprofit organizations and their efforts, and philanthropy. 

If your organization provides services in or around Central Vermont, you are eligible for funding. Each year, CVWGC accepts grant applications until December 15th. Please consider applying. Our giving range is $100 to $2,000. All funding decisions will be made by December 31st, and funds will be distributed during the first weeks of January. CVWGC accepts applications from groups without 501(c)3 designation as long as they have a fiscal sponsor.

To apply, please download and complete our grant application coversheet and attach it to a brief proposal outlining your project and the need it fulfills. If you have any questions, please email us at
