In 2019, the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving established a $100,000 Greater Together Community Fund for the Town of Rocky Hill. In 2022, the fund received another $50,000 totaling in an investment of $150,000. 

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.
