What does the fund do?

The Fund will provide resources to organizations throughout the region that serve residents who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of the outbreak. The Fund is designed to complement the work of federal, state and municipal government efforts. As the crisis evolves, we will work with community partners and adjust our focus as needed. 



*100% of the money donated to this fund will be used to address the emerging needs in the Hartford region.
