A total of $25,000 will be available to Loudoun nonprofits for grant funding. Grants will be awarded in amounts ranging from $2,000 – $5,000. The money for the grants was raised from proceeds of BENEFIT’s 2022 Crossroads Music Festival.

Grant recipients will be contacted in May 2023. After the grant recipients have been announced, their application videos will then be shared by BENEFIT throughout the year on its social media platforms in order to raise awareness and support for the nonprofit’s mission, as well as the greater mission of BENEFIT.
