CCT Announces 2014 Charitable Fund Award

Benefits Virginia Residents Living with a Disability

Do you work for a public agency or nonprofit organization that serves individuals with disabilities? If you have clients who live in Virginia whose quality of life could be improved if they had access to additional funds, please consider applying for a Charitable Fund Award on their behalf.

The Charitable Fund Award, a program of CCT, provides individuals with disabilities* who demonstrate a financial need with funds to be used for equipment, medication, or services.

Examples of past awards include (but are not limited to) funding for eyeglasses, dental work, assistive technology, therapies, medical supplies, bus passes, camp, and recreation center membership.

Applications must be completed and submitted on behalf of the recipient by a public agency or nonprofit organization that serves people with special needs in Virginia. Up to ten applications will be accepted from each public agency or organization.

Don’t wait! Applications are due by 5pm on March 31, 2014.

Commonwealth Community Trust (CCT) is a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that administers pooled special needs trusts for people with disabilities. For individuals with disabilities who rely on Medicaid and/or SSI, a special needs trust will not jeopardize benefits.
