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
Windsor Locks is a charming town with a strong sense of community. In addition to being home to Bradley Airport, Windsor Locks is also home to the small, but mighty Windsor Locks Greater Together Community Advisory Committee.
During our first year, the Windsor Locks Greater Together Community Advisory Committee has already fully funded five grants totalling over $15,000 that will improve the lives of our residents. We have funded a diverse array of grants, including the Windsor Locks Public Library, Lions Club, Special Olympics, UR Community Cares, and Operation Fuel. Each one of the grants will have a positive impact on our community.
The Windsor Locks Greater Together Community Advisory Committee is accepting applications to join our Advisory Committee. We are looking for dynamic, dedicated, and diverse people to help improve the lives of our residents. If you are interested in joining our small but mighty Advisory Committee, we would love to hear from you!
