CTCC Receives Multiple Grants from CACF

Charlottesville T’ai Chi Center has received multiple grants from the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF) to support various programs in the Charlottesville community.

The three grants are:

  • $5,000 from the Community Endowment Fund that supports general operation of the dojo.
  • $10,000 from the Twice is Nice fund that supports programs for seniors in the community.
  • $1,800 from the Fun is for Everyone Fund that supports programs for at-risk people and seniors in the area.

CTCC would like to express its deep appreciation to CACF for these grants that help us continue our work among various parts of our community that can benefit from T’ai Chi. We would also like to thank the dedicated CTCC members who work so successfully to secure these grants.

The generous donations of organizations and individuals are a vital component of the financing for CTCC. The many classes and programs that we offer both at the dojo and in the community could not continue without them.
