It’s Year-End Giving Time

It’s Year-End Giving Time

The Civic Leadership Fund is the Perfect Way to Support Your Community and Our Work

(November 13, 2017) As the calendar and tax year come to a close many of our friends and supporters consider making a year-end gift to the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain and we sincerely appreciate the support. Some donors will be making a gift to strengthen an existing fund or scholarship. Others may want to support the overall programs within our foundation and the Civic Leadership Fund (CLF) allows you to do just that. Our goal for this fund in 2017 is $72,000 and as of November 10 we’ve reached $44, 047.

To make your gift to this fund click here and select the Civic Leadership or CLF fund, or send your check to CFGNB at 74A Vine Street, New Britain, CT 06052 and write CLF in the memo line.

Did You Know?

Did you know that our Community Foundation’s minimum for establishing a Donor Advised Endowed Fund is only $5,000 and you can start and build that fund over time? That’s right, you and your family can be philanthropists and establish a fund in perpetuity that generates income annually which you can designate to any nonprofit organization(s) in or out of our service area.  For information, call our office at (860) 229-6018 or email Kaylah Smith, Assistant Director of Development, at ksmith@cfgnb.org.
