In 2019, the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving established a $100,000 Greater Together Community Fund for the Town of Glastonbury. In 2022, the Foundation added $50,000 to the Fund to continue to support community needs.
The purpose of the Greater Together Community Funds program 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.
