3/11/2021 - Canton’s Greater Together Community Fund Seeks Advisory Committee Nominees

Canton’s Greater Together Community Fund Seeks Advisory Committee Nominees

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 Canton. The purpose of the community funds is to support residents in taking ownership around the needs in their towns, encourage broad and inclusive civic engagement and anchor the Hartford Foundation in each town.

Canton residents will play a lead role in deciding how their community funds will be used. Canton’s Community Fund will be handled by an Advisory Committee of town residents that must be inclusive, representative and reflective of all of the residents of the community. The Advisory Committee will identify community needs and design a grantmaking process aimed to ensure that the community funds can have the greatest impact for the benefit of town residents. Hartford Foundation staff will provide guidance on topics such as participatory decision making, grantmaking, and fund development, as needed.

In order to establish the initial Advisory Committee, a Selection Committee has been formed to conduct broad outreach to town residents informing them of the opportunity to be a part of this Advisory Committee and accepting nominations.

To submit a nomination / application for the Canton Community Fund Advisory Committee, please fill out the application online.

Applications should be received by Friday, April 30, 2021 for consideration.

Printed applications may be found at the Canton Public Library during regular business hours.
