In 2019, the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving established a $100,000 Greater Together Community Fund for the Town of Enfield. In 2022, the Foundation added $50,000 to the Enfield Greater Together Community Fund to continue to support community needs.
The purpose of the Greater Together Community Funds is to:
- support the community in taking ownership around the needs in their towns
- encourage broad and inclusive civic engagement and
- anchor the Hartford Foundation in each town.
Your town will form an advisory committee that is inclusive and reflective of all town residents, to manage a participatory process to identify your town's needs and allocate community funds.
