There are a number of programs the Community Foundation is hoping to fund, including those that:
- prevent domestic violence and treat its victims (grant range: $2,000-8,000)
- serve New London women aged 62 and older with limited incomes ($2,000-10,000)
- help women enter or re-enter the workforce ($1,000-2,000)
- reduce pregnancies and STDs among high-risk teens ($5,000-10,000).
Charitable organizations, including nonprofits, churches, schools, hospitals, or governmental entities, can apply. Grants will not be made to or for specific individuals, political purposes or lobbying activities, or sectarian religious programs.
Organizations are encouraged to discuss grant request(s) with Program Director Jennifer O'Brien in advance of submission at 860-442-3572 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
