Grants of up to $2,500 to Waterbury Area, Connecticut nonprofit organizations, libraries, and senior centers for charitable events and/or educational programs that are open to the public and are held in the funding source's service area.

For the purposes of these grants, the service area includes the following twenty-one towns: Beacon Falls, Bethlehem, Bridgewater, Cheshire, Goshen, Litchfield, Middlebury, Morris, Naugatuck, New Milford, Oxford, Prospect, Roxbury, Southbury, Thomaston, Warren, Washington, Waterbury, Watertown, Wolcott, and Woodbury.

There are two types of grants available:

1. Underwriting grants help underwrite costs associated with holding the event.

2. Challenge grants match dollar-for-dollar (up to the grant amount) contributions received in response to a fundraising challenge made during your organization's event held in the 21-town service area.

Organizations may request up to $2,500 for an underwriting grant, a challenge grant, or a combination of both. Typically, though, the Foundation's grant awards are between $500 and $1,000.

Events should be held after October 30, 2017.

Grants are made to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, libraries, over-55 communities, and/or senior centers.

Sponsorships are open to agencies who provide the majority of their programs and services in the Connecticut Community Foundation's 21-Town area. Click here for more information: http://www.conncf.org/our-story/towns-served/

Sponsorship grants are limited to one approved grant per calendar year per organization. Golf tournaments, walk-a-thons or other sports activities are ineligible for funding.

2017 Sponsorship Application Deadlines:

January 27: for events held after March 30.
April 28: for events held after June 30.
