LLGL_smallThe Community is where we work, where we play, where we raise our children, where we call home. It is our responsibility as citizens to exercise good stewardship within our communities. Live locally and give locally to preserve the quality of life in our towns through these challenging times.

The economic climate has impacted nearly everyone in some way. As the financial security of local citizens wavers there is a rippling effect in the community. Nonprofit organizations and small local businesses alike suffer as cash flow fluctuates. We need to shop locally or the small businesses that are the fabric of our towns will close unable to weather the economic conditions and changes. As a result, our village centers and urban environments change dramatically. Additionally, as stewards of our towns, we need to help the nonprofits who rely on the generosity of others to run their programs. It’s time to pull together and help each other out.

Established in 2009 in response to the economic crisis, the Live Local Give Local campaign is an initiative of the Community Foundation of Middlesex County to raise awareness among the residents of Middlesex County about how important it is to take care of the community during difficult times by living locally and giving locally. The Community Foundation of Middlesex County helps maintain the quality of life in Middlesex County by offering training programs for and funding grants to nonprofit organizations to address the community needs.

100% of your gift to the Live Local Give Local Fund will be granted to our local nonprofits this year.
