Community 500

Community 500 is a chance for the citizens of Danville, Pittsylvania County & Caswell County to receive financial sponsorship & technical support for their own community impact project ideas. Since this is not a grant, applicants need not be affiliated with a group or organization.  Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, so you can apply at any time.  Decisions are typically made within two weeks of receipt of the application. How will you increase community engagement in the region?

Examples of past Community 500 projects include:

  • Student-led greenhouse at a local elementary school
  • Family portraits for residents of local public housing
  • Poetry slam to spotlight creatives from across the region

Community 500 applications are currently closed.  The next application period begins February 1, 2019.
