Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of grants does CCCC award?
Annual grants: The majority of CCCC funds are used to award grants in this category for $500 to $2000. The project must be completed before the awarded funds are sent to the grantee. Our annual and summer grants REQUIRE matching in funds and/or volunteer hours.
Summer grants: Some years we open a Summer Grant opportunity. The requirements are the same as the Annual Grants but the dollar amount is smaller, generally between $200 and $750. These are also reimbursed.
Sponsorship grants: Some years we open a Sponsorship grant opportunity. These grants are for up to $500 and are paid upfront to the grantee.
All applications can be found at "Apply."
