The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has established a $100,000 Greater Together Community Fund for the Town of Simsbury.
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.
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
Due to the tremendous response from interested volunteers, the application process for Simsbury Greater Together Community Fund Advisory Committee members is closed at this time. The Advisory Committee members will be announced after the selection process has been completed.
