You may have read that the Hartford Foundation has created 29 new funds, one for each of the towns in our region, as part of its Greater Together program. Each of the new funds is called a “community fund.” This should not be confused with the Granby Community Fund, Inc.
GCF would like to take this opportunity to let you know that the Granby Community Fund, Inc. is not part of this new initiative by the Hartford Foundation.
The Granby Community Fund, Inc. has been an integral part of the Granby community since 1960.
It is a federally recognized 501(c)3.
It has supported many Granby non-profit programs such as Parents for a Safe Graduation, the Marquis of Granby, Salvation Army, Holcomb Farm Fresh Access, Granby Fuel Bank, Granby Social Services, FAVARH, McLean Meals on Wheels, American Red Cross, Farmington Valley YMCA, Waste Not Want Not Community Kitchen, and the Granby Boy and Girl Scouts.
It raises more than $60,000 from Granby donors to support Granby programs.
Please do not confuse the two funds. Your support is vital to the continuation of the Granby Community Fund, Inc.
