As Chair of the Foundation’s Grants Committee and member of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to welcome you to our Grants Home Page. Here, you will find everything you need to understand the Foundation’s grantmaking philosophy, process and recent grant history.
The mission of the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain is to improve the quality of life in Berlin, New Britain, Plainville and Southington. One way we accomplish our mission is by investing in organizations and programs that achieve clear human gains for those in our region. We view ourselves as investors focused on ensuring the greatest possible improvement in quality of life with the funds we have available.
I invite you to review the information on our Applying for a Grant page carefully, beginning with the Foundation's Community Investment Guidelines. You can also review our yearly Grants and Initiatives pages to get a better feel for the types of grants the Foundation has made in the past, and the amounts awarded. At any point in your investigation, please feel free to contact Joeline Wruck, Director of Program, at 860.229.6018, x307, or by e-mail should you have any questions.
We look forward to working with you.
Cori Humes, Chair
