Investing in our community’s future by addressing today’s needs En Español


Since 1925, thousands of donors have entrusted their funds to us to distribute to projects, organizations and collaborations that show promise of substantial and sustainable community benefit. 

Our understanding of the community’s needs is shaped by specific requests from nonprofits and by our broad assessment of regional priorities. This means that our grantmaking is both responsive to changing community needs and opportunities, and addresses major issues that affect the well being of the entire Greater Hartford region.

About 60% of our grantmaking responds to requests for funding from nonprofits. We support a variety of broad-based areas that reflect the diverse needs and interests of our region, such as:

  • Arts and culture
  • Education
  • Family and social services
  • Health
  • Housing and economic development 

The remaining 40% of funding targets priority areas. These are areas in which the Foundation commits significant resources over an extended period of time to meet important community needs. 

In 2014, we awarded 1,997 grants amounting to more than $32.6 million. We have awarded $621 million in grants since 1925.
