Community Enrichment


The VCC is actively involved in various forms of community enrichment. In the 2015-2016 year, we gave over $120,000 to the community in the forms of scholarships and donations.

Our goal is to provide funds through a simple grant award process to organizations that will benefit the Vicenza Military Community. Policy states that the funds be used to purchase and support tangible items that benefit the greatest number of people in the community. The VCC generally does not fund requests for t-shirts, mugs, pins and flowers. Funds to cover food or other consumable items is considered on a case-by-case basis.
