encourages applications for Matching Funds Sponsorship Grants! Contact Cynthia Merrick at 203-753-1315 x112 prior
to applying if you have questions about how this type of sponsorship might be
beneficial to your organization.
*Organizations may request up to $2,500 for a
Sponsorship Grant, a Matching Fund Grant, or a combination of both. Please
consider the amount you are requesting based on the anticipated attendance of
your event, community impact, and your event budget. Although you may request up
to $2,500, most of the Foundation’s sponsorship grants are less than that
Sponsorship Grants are
limited to one approved grant per calendar year per
organization. CCF does not sponsor golf
tournaments, walk-a-thons, or other sports activities.
