What is the Community Foundation’s Champion’s Award?

The Award was established by the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain in 2018 and was first awarded in 2019 to celebrate and recognize individuals, businesses, organizations, civic groups and others who have, in a significant way, supported the activities of the Foundation in a manner that allowed it to fulfill its mission even more effectively and efficiently. The Foundation wishes to recognize those who have helped it make an even greater impact in the communities it serves while helping it be an even better steward of its resources.
