Staunton Creative Community Fund

The Staunton Creative Community Fund revitalizes communities by supporting and funding local entrepreneurs in the central Shenandoah Valley.

Whether you are growing a small business, organizing a nonprofit, or implementing more sustainable development practices, we provide training, consulting, and financing to help you succeed.


If you could TRIPLE your money and make a dream come true, why wouldn’t you? The Staunton Creative Community Fund is excited to announce that it has added another tool to its toolbox of funding for local entrepreneurs: the Virginia Individual Development Account (VIDA). VIDA is a matched-savings program for individuals of modest means that allows eligible  participants to save money and build a better future for themselves and their families. Participants earn $2 for every $1 they save (for a total of up to $6,000) that can be used for:

Job-related classes and professional training
Starting or expanding a business
