Investing in Leaders

We believe that thriving communities are built on creative partnerships and motivated residents who are deeply engaged where they live, work and play, and that strong leadership is integral to their success.

We invest in community leadership in Greater Waterbury and the Litchfield Hills by:

  • Increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of nonprofits through organizational development, including workshops, roundtables, grants and our Cornerstone Community Partnership program.
  • Providing training, funding and technical support to nonprofit organizations through our Nonprofit Advisory Institute
  • Providing funding to Waterbury residents to jump-start projects in their neighborhoods to create positive change, all through our grassroots grants.
  • Uniting businesses, individuals and organizations in fundraising for the vital work of local nonprofits through our annual Give Local online giving event
