Following a highly successful inaugural series in 2018, the Community Foundation will again offer a series of Capacity Building Workshops to help local non-profits build stronger boards.

A Memorial Service for former Foundation President Jim Williamson will take place this Saturday in West Hartford. Past board member Dr. Charles Leach offers a fitting tribute.

The Community Foundation recently approved more than $214,000 in grants, most of it for key community initiatives including First Years First. Total grant awards for 2018 now top $1.5 million.
