Thank You!
$635,280 for local nonprofits

On June 15th, more than 50 Northwest Connecticut nonprofits posted giving campaigns to raise funds to meet the challenges of operating amid social distancing and remote work requirements created by Covid-19.

Thanks to your support, all 53 Northwest Corner Gives campaigns met their fundraising goals and received their full dollar-for dollar matches!

Northwest Corner Gives logoIn response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Foundation launched Northwest Corner Gives: COVID-19 Relief Grants through the Northwest Corner Gives: COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund.  Relief Grants featured crowdsourced gift matching that enabled local nonprofits to set fundraising goals to meet their immediate needs, including operational support.

The Community Foundation guaranteed a grant for 50 percent of each nonprofit goal then matched dollar-for-dollar all gifts until each goal was achieved. Gift matches were made possible by generous gifts from community members, and anonymous, and discretionary Community Foundation funds.
