Congratulations to the 2014 CPC Community Partner Grants Recipients!

Each year the Community Placement Councils (CPC) awards the CPC Community Partner Grants to select community partners through the Community Fund. The Councils receive annual requests for funding and conduct a formal review and selection process to determine the recipients. Last year grants were awarded to two of the Historic Alexandria Docent Committee’s community partners: Gadsby’s Tavern Museum and the Carlyle House.

Gadsby’s Tavern Museum requested funding for a tabletop display in the spring. The Museum has had success with the display since its arrival in June and plans to use it as a resource to showcase the museum at other sites and for occasions when full tours are limited for special events.

The Carlyle House requested funding for two leather armchairs in their docent lounge. These were to replace their previous outdated chairs that were used by the docents between tours.  The chairs also enhance the look and feel of the museum entrance.

The CPCs are excited to contribute to its community partners and look forward to supporting this year’s future recipients!
