COMMUNITY ENRICHMENT GRANTS
VCC Community Enrichment Grants Make a Difference!
The Vicenza Community Club is a volunteer organization that “salutes” those who have served our country and promotes education and social welfare while fostering cultural exchange. Providing funding for Community Enrichment is a key element of the VCC’s mission. The club proudly supports units, FRGs, our local schools, military support organizations and many other local groups who share our passion for improving the Vicenza Military Community.
In addition, we choose monthly philanthropy projects to support.

The purpose of the Bright Eyes Program is to assist families of qualifying children (infant through grade twelve) in the Vicenza Military Community with their eyeglass purchase. After purchasing their eyeglasses, qualified families may be reimbursed up to $150.00 towards the cost of their glasses. Applicants are eligible to for assistance towards one pair of eyeglasses per year.

Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. We evaluate our success in this field by gathering qualitative and quantitative data, and using that information to measure shifts and changes from our baseline measurements.
By fostering partnerships with community groups, private organizations, and garrison support agencies we are able to develop trusted relationships and maximize the positive impact and support we offer the community.
