The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has established a $100,000 Community Fund for the Town of Simsbury.
The purpose of the 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.
Selection Committee Members
The role of the selection committee is to select the first Advisory Committee members and ensure that it is inclusive and reflective of all town residents.
The selection committee members for your town are:
Kevin Beal, Joe Buda, Lisa Gray, Ferg Jansen, Fay Lenz, Liz Peterson, Ryan Schorr, Tobore Wolske
The selection committee is now accepting applications and nominations of individuals to serve on the Simsbury Greater Together Community Fund Advisory Committee. If you are interested in applying or nominating someone, please complete an application here or download a copy here. Paper copies are also available at the Simsbury Public Library, 725 Hopmeadow Street.
