Thanks to our donors, the Community Foundation of Middlesex County reached a new goal in grant awards in 2012.
Women and girls enjoyed an evening of pampering and education at Woodrow Wilson Middle School during the “Girls Night Out” program.
Thanks to your generosity, the Community Foundation of Middlesex County approved over $530,000 in grants in 2012, including thirty-four (34) grants awarded through the 2012-2013 competitive cycle.
Your commitment to the quality of life in Middlesex County ensures that good things continue to happen in our region through our nonprofit organizations: libraries offer improved services to the community; our youth have access to peer meditation training; community gardens grow healthy and organic foods for our food pantries; historical societies preserve our towns’ past for the future; families receive professional services supporting mental and educational services for children with autism; and so much more.
Water safety skills are vital for our children — Valley Shore YMCA “Fit Kids Learn to Swim” program.
You, our donors, working with our grant making partners – River View Cemetery, the Ann T. D’Addario Family Foundation, and Connecticut Humanities, provide the necessary funding to “Help Good People Do Great Things.” We – and the entire community – are grateful for your support.
