The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has established a $100,000 Greater Together Community Fund for the Town of Windsor Locks. In 2022, the Foundation added  $50,000 to the Fund to continue to support community needs.

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 has formed an advisory committee to manage a participatory process to identify your town's needs and allocate community funds.

Call for Committee Members

We are looking for passionate volunteers to serve on the Windsor Locks Advisory Committee to the Hartford Foundation of Public Giving!

The Windsor Locks Advisory Committee was formed in 2021 and has already fully funded five grants totaling over $15,000 to organizations including the Windsor Locks Public Library, Lions Club, Special Olympics, UR Community Cares, and Operation Fuel.

We are now seeking new members to join the committee in steering the second grant cycle and helping to decide how community funds will be used. We are dedicated to creating a group that is inclusive, representative, and reflective of all residents of the community. 

Members must be over 14 years of age, not an elected official, and residents of Windsor Locks. Members are expected to attend one Zoom meeting per month, and should be willing to work on committee projects between meetings.

The deadline for applications is May 31, 2023.
