2019 Year in Review

The world has obviously changed since 2019 ended and our front cover of this Year-In-Review shows just some of our work from early 2020. Southington’s Bread For Life (pictured with CFGNB reusable bags) received one of our emergency grants which we created in order to quickly respond to the COVID-19 public health crisis. Because 2019 was a very good year for the Foundation in grants, scholarships, sponsorships and gifts it helped better prepare us to be able to respond quickly in early 2020. We are grateful to our donors, past and present, for their support. Without their generosity, we wouldn’t be able to share the very successful stories of 2019 with you, and we wouldn’t have been as prepared as we were for the difficult times ahead. Great governance by our board, the work of our dedicated committees, and one of the best staff teams in the foundation business will allow us to do our best to respond to the needs of the communities we serve. We look forward to reporting to you next year at this time how we cared for the communities we live and worked in, or for those of you who may have moved away, communities where your heart still holds a place. Thank you to all of our Foundation family for your support. Read through this report and let us know if you have any questions.
