The Hartford Foundation has created 29 new funds, one for each of the towns in our region.---!>
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.
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.
Every meaningful process starts with listening. We are committed to encouraging new ideas and new ways of collaborating as we respond to the highest, most pressing needs in the communities we serve.
A diverse community calls for diversified investments. From building the capacity of nonprofits, to supporting the next generation of leaders, we are proud to put resources behind meaningful efforts.
Our carefully managed endowment guarantees the endurance of our resources and the progress it supports. Its strength allows us to protect tomorrow's assets while steadfastly addressing today's needs.
