The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has established a $100,000 Greater Together Community Fund for the Town of Marlborough.

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.

Marlborough has formed an advisory committee to manage a participatory process to identify its needs and allocate community funds.

Call For Grant Applications

The Hartford Foundation’s Greater Together Community Fund Advisory Committee for Marlborough is currently accepting grant applications. The Marlborough Greater Together Community Fund supports the community in taking ownership around the needs of the town and encourages broad and inclusive civic engagement.

Marlborough, home to Mary Hall, Connecticut’s first female lawyer who was also a poet, suffragist and philanthropist, has always captured the spirit of this town and its residents. This is an exciting opportunity to build on Marlborough’s rich American history and continue its on-going efforts to be a beacon of inclusion, diversity and kindness.

Organizations that support the Marlborough community are encouraged to apply for a grant. Requests can range from $500 to $10,000. To be considered, the organization must be a registered nonprofit with a 501(c)(3) designation as a public charity or must obtain a fiscal agent registered as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Groups of town residents may prepare an application in partnership with a registered nonprofit that has agreed to serve as a fiscal agent for the proposed project.

A budget template is available to help determine what the project will cost. 

Please review the Request for Proposals for further details on eligibility requirements and project considerations. Submission of applications will be accepted until Friday, September 17.
