About The CVP Community Fund
Land use planning and development and other locally and regionally controlled decisions have far reaching impacts on neighboring towns, cities and unincorporated county residents. But historically, those voices are not adequately engaged in government decision-making, even though communities bear the burdens of the impacts of these decisions in the form of traffic congestion, air and water quality, increasing demand on shared public utilities and infrastructure, school capacity and many other quality of life impacts.
The CVP Community Fund brings assistance to local grassroots efforts in the form of grants, consulting, fiscal sponsorship, and legal and technical assistance. CVP accepts donations in the form of cash, checks, credit / debit cards, as well as donations of other liquid assets such as stock and bonds. Please contact us to make special arrangements for donations other than cash.
