The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has established a $100,000 Greater Together Community Fund for the Town of Glastonbury.
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.
Your town has formed an advisory committee to manage a participatory process to identify your town's needs and allocate community funds.
Open Call For Letters of Interest
In Decemeber, the Glastonbury Greater Together Community Fund Advisory Committee announced a call for Letters of Interest for funding available to programs that will improve or enhance the quality of life of Glastonbury or otherwise contribute to solving a direct need of the Glastonbury community. Submissions are currently under review.
Potential Grant Award
The size of the grant awards will be based on the scope and focus of proposals. The minimum award for any proposal is $2,000 and the maximum grant shall not exceed $25,000. However, additional funding for proposals can be sought from other sources for larger proposals.
Review and Selection Process
Letters of Interest will be reviewed on a competitive basis by the Glastonbury Community Fund Advisory Committee and will be evaluated according to the merit and relevance to the call.
The short-listed Letters of Interest will be notified and invited to participate in submitting a full proposal by the end of January. Developed proposals will be selected and awarded by the end of March 2021. All grant awards are made at the sole discretion of the Glastonbury Community Fund Advisory Committee.
