The Bennington Idea Fund
AmeriCorps VISTAs and staff at the BCRC are helping to create an innovative new community initiative called The Bennington Idea Fund. Operating similar to a small community foundation, the Idea Fund will collect investments from local businesses and use them to award small grants to various projects. These projects, or ideas, can come from any community member or organization, as long as they meet three criteria: The project must attempt to 1) Help a person or people struggling with poverty, 2) Achieve something measurable, and 3) Create sustainable impact. For more information on the Idea Fund, check out the website: www.benningtonideafund.org and feel free to contact the BCRC’s Mickey McGlasson at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
