Community 500 is a chance for the citizens of Danville, Pittsylvania County & Caswell County to receive financial & 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.
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
