To my friends and colleagues in the Greater Hartford region,
It has been such a pleasure for me to work with you these past eleven years as president of the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. We have accomplished so much together - staff and board, donors, nonprofits, residents and community, business and policy leaders.
I am honored to have been part of an organization that is so devoted to this region, that supports community needs, encourages authentic dialogue, builds understanding, and creates a collective sense of empathy, responsibility and action.
I will always treasure this extraordinary experience, and remain excited and confident about the future of the Foundation and the communities we serve.
[Hartford Foundation president Linda J. Kelly retires today, after 11+ years of service to our foundation. We wish her the best in her retirement and the next chapter of her life.]
