MICRO GRANTS

In the Summer of 2022, we’ll be launching two new grant programs to empower individuals and organizations to help put on the 2022 Festival. 

 

This may be the seed funding that launches an entirely new program, or the added support to make an existing program shine when it's on Tom Tom’s main stage. The key factors: 1) does it help tell a story about Tomorrow’s Charlottesville, and/or 2) Is it one of those amazing things that makes you proud to live here.
