The Tolland Greater Together Community Fund aims to:

  • Establish a relationship between the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and the town of Tolland
  • Support Tolland and its residents with their community needs
  • Encourage engagement and ownership regarding projects and work that benefit the community

An Advisory Committee will assist you with the grant process and make grants to the final recipients.
