The Hartford Foundation’s Greater Together Community Fund Advisory Committee for Ellington (Ellington Community Funds) is accepting applications for grants as well as for new committee members.
Ellington Community Funds supports the community in taking ownership around the needs of the towns and encourages broad and inclusive civic engagement.
Organizations that support the Ellington community are encouraged to apply for a grant (requests from $250 to $15,000). To be considered, the organization must be a registered nonprofit with a 501(c)3 designation as a public charity or must obtain a fiscal agent registered as a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
The Advisory Committee helps identify community needs and will participate in the grantmaking process. It will “ensure that the Greater Together Community Funds can have the greatest impact for the benefit of town residents.” Applicants must be Ellington residents. Students are encouraged to apply.
Organizations wanting to apply, as well as individuals wanting to be on the advisory committee, can apply online or get an application at the Hall Memorial Library. The deadline to apply as an advisory committee member is Dec. 15. Deadline for grant applications is January 15, 2021.
Ellington Community Fund Committee co-chairs are Aaron Foster and Sandra Andrews. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details about the Ellington Community.
