Walter Cerf Community Fund
The Walter Cerf Community Fund (WCCF) makes grants to address charitable needs in the state of Vermont. Priority interests are the arts, education, historic preservation, and social services, reflecting the pattern of giving established by Mr. Cerf over many years. Within these issue areas, there is a strong desire to support work that addresses the needs of underserved populations. The WCCF prefers proposals that encourage cooperation, collaboration, and community building. We highly value the input of the Preservation Trust and strongly encourage grantseekers for historic preservation projects to consult with the Trust before submitting an application. The WCCF will rarely fund an entire project, but favors projects which have support from a variety of sources.
Grant applications will be accepted from organizations that are located in or serve the people of Vermont. Organizations must be tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or be a public agency, school, or municipality in the state of Vermont. Nonprofit organizations or community groups who do not have 501(c)(3) status may apply for grant awards if another eligible organization acts as a fiscal sponsor.

Through the Innovation Fund, the Foundation is specifically targeting solutions and projects that will build lasting community resilience through protecting vulnerable populations and frontline workers or providing for the safe return to work.
Nonprofits can apply for grants of up to $100,000. Individuals, teams of individuals, and eligible for-profit organizations can apply for microgrants of up to $10,000.
The One SC COVID-19 Response Fund
The One SC Fund: COVID-19 Response is a partnership between SC Grantmakers Network, Together SC, and the United Way Association of SC. The funds will be held at Central Carolina Community Foundation. The funds deployed will enhance the efforts already underway in several counties and regions across South Carolina and will be used to address gaps in the response efforts, including support for communities that lack resources or an organized philanthropic response.
The One SC COVID-19 Response Fund will support nonprofits that are providing direct services in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Priority will be given to organizations serving under-resourced counties as well as those working with populations disproportionately impacted by this crisis in the areas of basic needs (food and water, shelter, safety and security).
An organization must:
- Be classified by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3), nonprofit entity or must make use of a fiscal agent that has a 501(c)(3) designation.
- Complete an online application
- Provide a detailed project budget
- Provide their organization’s most recent 990 (please contact the One SC grant contact if this creates an undue burden on the applicant)
