For 90 years, we have advanced equity and opportunity in our 29-town region. The map below illustrates the reach of our grants over the past five years, supporting over 650 nonprofits and those they serve.
Developed by a group of key regional stakeholders, Metro Hartford Progress Points looks at progress in our region and asks the question, "what can we do differently?"
Our donors bring a wide range of interests, convictions and ambitions to the table. We listen to and work closely with them to determine the type of fund that best suits their circumstances and philanthropic goals.
