Volunteers Serving Food

Grant Information

We welcome the opportunity to partner with a wide array of locally-based nonprofit organizations. CTCC raises funds for nonprofit organizations and civic causes which directly benefit the Cranberry community. In doing so, CTCC ensures that the money we raise within Cranberry Township stays within Cranberry Township. 

 

CTCC will only supply grants to nonprofits/civic groups who are members of CTCC.

If you are not a member, please do not submit an application. 

Applications for Funding: Guidelines for Approval

The intention of the following guidelines is to outline the requirements for an Application for Funding to be approved. An Application for Funding can only be considered if the organization requesting funds follows the guidelines set below:

 

  1. The requester must be a current CTCC nonprofit organization or a civic organization and have been a member for longer than one year.

  2. The project or service that the organization is requesting funds for must be unique to that organization. Funds may not be requested for operational costs, license, or subscription fees.

  3. CTCC will provide a maximum of 50% of the project or service cost.

  4. The ideal project or service will create volunteering opportunities and/or value to our community. Please clearly explain how it will benefit our community.
