The all volunteer advisory committee of the West Hartford Greater Together Community Fund, which awarded $50,000 in grants in 2022, is looking to add to its membership.


In 2019, the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving established $100,000 Community Funds for each of the 29 towns in the Foundation’s region, which includes the town of West Hartford. The West Hartford Greater Together Community Fund is looking for young adults to participate in decision making, grant funding, and operations decisions.

The purpose of the Community Funds is to support residents in taking ownership around the needs in their towns and encourage broad and inclusive civic engagement. West Hartford residents play the lead role in deciding how the Community Fund will be used.

The all-volunteer advisory committee currently includes 11 members and is looking for additional young adult members, aged 14-20. A full recruitment period open to all residents of West Hartford will begin in the Fall of 2023.

  1. Deciding on the Committee’s operating procedures,
  2. Receiving and evaluating applications to the fund, and
  3. Making fund distribution decisions in this and coming years.
