Thomaston Savings Gives $97K to Hartford County Organizations
The Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation is providing more than $97,000 in grants to dozens of nonprofit organizations in Hartford County this year.
The funding is part of the bank’s annual foundation grant cycle, which provides grants to nonprofits in communities across the state.
For the first part of this year’s grant cycle, the foundation considered applications from organizations addressing needs in Bristol, Farmington, and Unionville.
Overall, the foundation gave 35 grants to organizations, including the Salvation Army of Bristol, the Boys & Girls Club of Bristol, The Family Center, and St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Bristol.
Organizations rely heavily on the funding to remain operational.
“The funds received by the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation will help us to provide free music and creative arts instruction, dinner each time they gather, and free transportation to over 25 underprivileged youth in Bristol,” the Salvation Army of Bristol corps officer Captain Shareena Echavarria said.
Other recipients included BristolWORKS!, Memorial Military Museum, and United Way of West Central Connecticut.
Since 1997, the foundation has annually helped charitable organizations in towns the bank calls home.
Phase two grants will be given to towns in Litchfield County, including Plymouth, Thomaston, and Torrington.
Applications are due by July 31, 2023.
New Haven County organizations will be eligible to receive grants during phase three.
