2017 Event Sponsorship Application (Round 3)

Deadline: August 18 2017 at 11:30 PM EDT - CLOSED


This program is inactive or past the deadline.

Description

Connecticut Community Foundation awards two types of event sponsorship grants (up to $2,500) to support events in our 21-town area hosted by 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, libraries, over-55 communities and/or senior centers. Event sponsorships are open to agencies who provide the majority of their programs and services in our 21-town area.

We offer two types of sponsorship grants for charitable events and/or educational programs that are open to the public and held in our area:

1. Underwriting grants help underwrite costs associated with holding the event.

2. Challenge grants match dollar-for-dollar contributions raised during your event in response to your announcement of our fundraising challenge (up to the grant amount).

Organizations may request up to a total of $2,500 for an underwriting grant, a challenge grant, or a combination of both. Typically, though, our grant awards are between $500 and $1,000. Carefully consider the amount you are requesting based on the anticipated event attendance, community impact and event budget.

Sponsorship grants are limited to one approved grant per calendar year per organization. Golf tournaments, walk-a-thons or other sports activities are ineligible for funding.
