Canton Community Fund | Grant Applications
Applying for a Grant
The Canton Community Fund invites applications for grants to support projects that aim to sustain and improve the life of the community. The Fund has provided assistance in a wide variety of areas, including historic preservation and awareness, community beautification, the arts, education, recreation, human services, and programs for youth and senior citizens.
The maximum award is $2000; typically awards are $1000 or less.
Not-for-profit organizations that are located in and serve the residents of the Village or Town of Canton are eligible for grants from the Fund (Individuals are not eligible).
Grant monies may be used to support the purposes outlined above through special projects, program start-ups, or capital items that are not part of normal maintenance. The Fund does not award grants to pay for the normal operations and activities of an organization or for projects that benefit only an organization's own members. Organizations that have received support in the past may apply again, and the Fund welcomes applications on a rolling basis.
