The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has established a $150,000 Greater Together Community Fund for the town of Granby. A selection committee of Granby residents is forming an advisory panel to manage a participatory process to identify local needs and allocate community funds.
With the support and guidance of the Hartford Foundation, the advisory committee will design and lead an inclusive process to identify community needs, design and lead an inclusive grant-making process, provide periodic updates to the Hartford Foundation, and keep track of available funds for grantmaking,
Residents interested in serving on the inaugural advisory committee may apply online at hfpg.org/granbycf or by visiting the Granby Public Library, 15 North Granby Road for a paper application. Applications are due no later than March 31.
The Granby Greater Together Community Fund at the Hartford Foundation selection committee consists of Anne Marie Elder, Helen Frye, Karen Handville, Eric Harrison, Eric Hutchinson, and Rose Mouning.
The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving is the community foundation for Hartford and 28 surrounding communities. Made possible by the gifts of generous individuals, families and organizations, the Foundation has awarded grants of more than $948 million since its founding in 1925.
