The Suffield Greater Together Community Fund was created by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving in 2019. The Fund was initially started with $100,000 from the Hartford Foundation to support the needs of Suffield residents. In January 2022, the Hartford Foundation gave an additional $50,000 to the Fund with half of the funding being maintained in the Fund’s endowment and the remaining half to support current grantmaking efforts.

The purpose of the Greater Together Community Funds program is to:

  • support the community in taking ownership around the needs in their towns;
  • encourage broad and inclusive civic engagement;
  • anchor the Hartford Foundation in Suffield and 28 other towns in the region.
