THANK YOU! Once again Granby residents have supported the Granby Community Fund, which in turn supports your neighbors.

The Granby Community Fund is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, consisting of an all-volunteer Board of Directors that has been coordinating an annual community campaign since 1960. It is one of the few remaining Community Funds in Connecticut. It funds federally recognized 501(c)3 organizations and other charitable organizations that directly serve Granby residents.

The GFC’s mission is to provide grants and financial assistance to local organizations for the sole purpose of sustaining a caring, healthy environment for Granby residents through the generosity of its donors. This means a minimum of fundraising intrusions while affording local residents and businesses the opportunity of supporting many charitable organizations, with just one tax-deductible donation. Low campaign costs allow us to distribute more than 95 percent of the donations directly to local organizations. 

Although the GCF has successfully made grants to organizations for nearly 60 years, donations have been declining. The Granby Community Fund generously supports Waste Not Want Not Kitchen, Parents for a Safe Graduation, the Marquis of Granby, Salvation Army, FAVARH, Meals on Wheels, Holcomb Farm Fresh Access, Granby Fuel Bank, Granby Social Services, American Red Cross, Farmington Valley YMCA, and the Granby Boy and Girl Scouts. The specific programs that are supported in many cases would not exist without your assistance. Thank you!
