The Suffield Greater Together Community Fund was created by the HFPG in 2019. The Fund was initially started with $100,000 from the Foundation to support the needs of Suffield residents. Additional funds have been added to the fund in subsequent years to support ongoing 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.
